Maybe you’ve read the recent mainstream media articles (from International Living, the Huffington Post and many others) that explain why Ecuador is the world’s #1 expat destination for six years running. Have you checked out the property prices in places like Costa Rica, Belize or Panama? They’ve skyrocketed. While property prices in Ecuador are still very attractive, it won’t be that way forever. Today, the world is discovering Ecuador. People are taking advantage of the deals, and prices will be on the rise before you know it. Buena Vista is beautiful, and being offered at a great value. The timing’s perfect.

Buena Vista is a one-mile peninsula that stretches beyond Ecuador’s central coast with panoramic ocean views you must see to believe.

If you take the Buena Vista tour,  why not see more of Ecuador after this.

We do not recommend driving in Ecuador.   Let Ecuador’s excellent low cost guides drive you so you can enjoy the trip and see more.  However we know that some intrepid souls are going to drive and here is a report from a reader who did and enjoyed the process. Reader Tim Statler wrote:

Dear Gary,

I was traveling in Ecuador in November by car and having so much fun that I wanted to pass along some of my observations. I know that you have cautioned people against driving in Ecuador in the past.  I agree that traveling by car might not be for everyone but with all of the new roads and the incredible scenery I am sure that many people will find Ecuador a wonderful place for a road trip. In order to help people navigate the country I offer the following observations.

This trip, in November of 2012, I traveled the route from Manta to Bahia and Canoa and back to the Manta airport on the first leg. Avis has an office at the Manta airport and, even while the Manta airport is undergoing renovations, it is an easy pick up and drop off. Avis has two levels of insurance. 15.00 USD per day will get you coverage with an approximately 1200 USD deductible. They block your cc for that amount. For 33.00 USD per day you get total coverage. I suggest the full coverage for peace of mind. A personal anecdote will follow later in my comments.

A word about maps and GPS. I am a pilot and a big fan of GPS technology. I own many GPS units, carry an iPad with Google Maps and international data as well as a Blackberry with Google Maps and a small battery powered Garmin GPS as well. I purchased the small Garmin unit and a chip of Ecuador maps from GPS Travel Maps, www.gpstravelmaps.com. They sell maps to many places that standard map packages do not cover. In order of effectiveness I would rate my Blackberry with Google Maps as the most reliable, next the Garmin and then the iPad. The iPad with the Google Maps web based app, which is the only option for iPads with iOs 6, was a disappointment. Hopefully the Google Maps for iPad will be available again shortly.

Traveling north out of Manta towards Bahia was easy until we missed the left turn to Bahia just north of Manta. The intersection is not marked from either direction. That section of road is still under construction so hopefully this will be corrected soon. This intersection highlights the continuing problem in Ecuador with signage. Once you are out off the cities and on new highways I found the signage to be excellent and very complete. Getting out of Quito or into the Guayaquil airport however is another story. You need all your technology and maps to find the exit and entrance doors! I am a big fan of paper maps and charts however I have yet to buy big city maps. I will correct that problem when I return to Ecuador in a couple of weeks. The remainder of our trip through Bahia and Canoa and the return to Manta was very easy. The new road north of Bahia is almost complete now with curbs and a bike path. Renovations to the roads through San Vicente on the north side of the Chone River are underway and, once complete, will be lovely with paving bricks and a beautiful malecon. The new bridge over the river just south of Canoa is almost complete as well, although the Canoa bypass is still under construction and, until this is finished, the access to Canoa from the south is a dirt road and a little hard to find. This area is poised for great growth I would suggest.

Returning to Quito by air we rented again from Avis and traveled south. We stopped in Ambato for a sales call and lunch, continuing on to Cuenca over the mountains, in the fog and clouds and at night. I would not recommend this type of trip unless necessary. I suggest planning your itinerary so as to be checked in to your hotel, or at least in your destination city by dark whenever possible, for safety, referring to driving not security, and to be sure not to miss any incredible scenery. Cuenca was relatively easy to negotiate but again Google Maps made it possible to find our hotel, Los Balcones, on a one way street in the center. We continued on to Loja and Vilcabamba the next day. Spectacular scenery and easy driving. After the weekend in Vilcabamba I left my girlfriend and returned to Cuenca for a meeting and then over the mountains to Guayaquil. My drive over the mountains through the Cajas National Park ranks as one of the best road trips ever, certainly in the top 5. Wild lamas along the road, sheer cliffs dropping thousands of feet into the valley and a spectacular new road reaching an altitude of more than 13,667 feet.

Once down on the coast it was a more typical drive up to Guayaquil but I was impressed to see passing lanes of several kilometers which enabled me to pass the trucks and busses and keep up a comfortable pace. The new entrance to Guayaquil from the east is beautiful. Four or more lanes, newly paved straight into town, first class all the way. I had not programmed the airport into a GPS as I figured it would be easy to find the airport. Wrong on all counts. There was not even a little airplane symbol to be found. When I saw the runway on my right I figured that there must be an exit ahead. As I moved towards the right lane I hit an unmarked concrete curb that serves as a divider for the bus stop. I had no chance to avoid it and my tire exploded. The rim was totaled and it was dark and traffic was heavy. I managed to get off the road and put the spare quickly but finding the airport cost me another hour, even though the runway was on the other side of the fence. Simply programming one of the GPS’s would have saved me all the trouble. Once I delivered the car I was concerned about the cost as I had only taken the 15.00 a day insurance. Fortunately Ecuador delivered again and, with the day early return, the cost of the repair was only 48.00 USD. I now know how to get into the Guayaquil airport so the adventure was worth it but I could have done a better job preparing.

All in all I had a fantastic trip driving. I was stopped several times by road blocks. I was either waved on without stopping or sent on my way pleasantly after a brief inspection of the car papers and my driver’s license. Only one policeman mentioned that I could only drive thirty days on my Michigan license. There is a new speeding campaign in Ecuador and penalties are severe so you must observe the speed limits. There were radar speed traps on downhill sections of the road so you need to be careful on those sections.

Gas is 1.48 per gallon so I could not get 10.00 USD in the tank of my Aveo. People everywhere are Ecuador friendly and helpful. I speak fluent Spanish so everything is easy when it comes to communication. I would suggest that you should be a reasonably decent navigator and speak some Spanish to go driving around the country but with a positive attitude and a GPS you could probably do just fine with English. I recommend taxis in the cities and renting the car for travel between. I turned in my car in Guayaquil and took taxis to my appointments, it is far easier. Traffic in Quito and Guayaquil can be very heavy so it is much more stress free to let someone else do the driving, especially when it costs so little. The freedom and flexibility of having your own car can’t be beat though, the roads throughout the country and brand new and beautifully done and the scenery is incomparable.

Learn about Ecuador in Florida.

Day two of our International Investing and Business Seminar next week in Eustis, Florida is about Ecuador Living.  Talk about catching an early wave… Merri and I caught the Ecuador expat trend right at its beginning 17 years ago.   We brought readers who joined us in Ecuador then… some amazing opportunities.  This cycle has matured but there are still great bargains if you know what to do.  No one has as much experience and as many contacts in this field. This experience is also dependable.  We do not sell Ecuador real estate so you won’t be hearing any hidden agendas.

For example after more than a dozen years of traveling… working… buying and selling real estate and running businesses in Ecuador… we led Jean Marie Butterlin to the coast and he began scouring the beaches from Manta, north to Pedernales… finding the bargains…. meeting the landowners…  understanding the rules, regulations and customs.

That experience made him the expert of Ecuador beach real estate so that bargains could be found and so his clients could overcome the biggest problems and intelligently buy real estate on the coast.

We’ll share how to  buy beach property intelligently.

You’ll learn how to overcome one of the biggest mistakes most real estate buyers make on the beach.

Dr. Andres Cordova will speak and join me in updating Ecuador real estate and residency rules.

Dr. Andres Cordova speaking at our seminars.

Andres is our friend and Ecuador attorney. He is the grandson of one of Ecuador’s more famous presidents and was a senior partner in a law firm that represents Ecuador’s treasury.

We’ll also review how to create an Ecuador export business as Merri and I have for many years.

We’ll review The Ecuadorshop Logistics service that provides all these services for exporters in importers into the USA.

We’ll share how Roberto provides an exclusive service that help.

Learn to speak Spanish before going to Ecuador.   We have added a Super Spanish course for Mt. Dora for March 18-19-20.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The Learn Spanish in three day course is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we are testing an online beta program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   This is a beta test and is available only this week, June 5 to 11, at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”
