Pro-Ecuador Newsletter: 100th anniversary of Machu Picchu Discovery; commentary on Japan Meltdown
April 14, 2011
A View From the Roof: Our Machu Picchu tour starts tomorrow; update on Urcuqui lots, and commentary on the Japan melt down.
Bullfighting: Will bullfighting be banned in Ecuador? On May 7 Ecuadorians will vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on this volatile subject. A ‘yes’ vote would make it illegal to kill an animal for entertainment.
Ecuador Visas: Those wanting to get visas in the U.S. but who live a long way from a U.S. consulate will be happy to learn that several new consulates have been opened in the U.S. There are now a total of 14.
Cotacachi Colonials: Another wonderful old historical home bites the dust but one is saved from demolition by a loving couple who are in the process of renovating it.
Cotacachi Real Estate: Retirees have hit the jackpot with two great new developments designed with them in mind. Hacienda de las Flores, a retirement living condo facility, is having great success in Cotacachi.
*Take advantage of pre-construction prices for Hacienda de las Flores. Prices go up May 1, 2011.
The other complex is Pakakuna Gardens near the new Quito airport, which offers exclusive luxury homes and villas with splendid gardens.
Both developments will have a great variety of services, including medical care, on the premises. Those who purchase now can enjoy their new homes now or rent them out, knowing that when elder care is needed, they’ll be well cared for.
