Ecuador Medical Tourism – Cosmetic Treatments, Surgeries, Procedures, and Cost (Cost of Living 2020)
We had an educational visit with a plastic surgeon in Cuenca Ecuador. We explored the cost savings for common procedures compared to the cost in the US, and reviewed the quality of the clinic and care. Ecuador is a favorite destination for medical tourism, especially cosmetic surgery and treatments. The savings in cost for these procedures are often not covered by insurance, the savings are often far in excess of the additional cost of flights, hotel and a side vacation. We hope this video helps you to understand why Ecuador is often a country used for American medical tourism.

Ecuador is affordable, and the lifestyle you can have on a typical Social Security check of $1,500 a month is very attractive. Budgets vary, and many live in Cuenca Ecuador on much less than $1,500 and others far exceed $1,500. We’ve met people living on under $1,000 while we’ve been here, so that is a possibility.

Julie and I retired early not by luck but by planning.
One of our spokes to our wheel for savings, and now an income stream
is Fundrise. Basically we are invested in many apartment complexes around the country.
We get a portion of the rents in the form of dividends, and growth in value with the appreciation
of the properties. We currently have selected an income REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust)
which historically pays between 7.5% – 9% annually in dividends. You can chose a balanced REIT which has a split between appreciation and dividends or a REIT where it’s focused on appreciation and not dividends.
Check it out to see if it’s a fit for your savings, or retirement strategy. Feel free to share this with those you feel may benefit from this program.
