¡Hola! And a very warm welcome to the Guayaquil Community! Taking the leap and moving to a new country and city can be daunting and even confusing, but that's where InterNations comes in. InterNations is a private network entirely for expats and global minds who are already living or thinking of starting their lives in another country. Through the network, you can interact with other, more experienced expats and ask them questions about life in Guayaquil, from "what is the education system like in Ecuador for expat kids?" to "how easy is it to find a job in Guayaquil when you arrive in the city?". After all, who better to ask than those who have already been through the same and who can share their experiences.
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Paris or Moscow.
Attend our monthly events and activities for Guayaquil expatriates to get to know like-minded expatriates in real life.

The largest and most populous city in Ecuador, Guayaquil and its surrounding region have some of the most beautiful landscape in South America, including the Amazon Jungle, the impressive Andes mountain range, and a perfect coastline that expats can look forward to exploring. Quite a number of expats reside in the city that is known for being the commercial center of Ecuador. Guayaquil has been gradually modernizing and now features a number of high-rises and modern facilities. In recent years, the city has generally received a lot of investment in things like urban renewal projects and now has a thriving student population and growing arts scene. It is a very attractive place for expats, too, as well as one of the cheapest South American cities to live in.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Vienna or Cape Town, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Using InterNations to connect with other expats is perfectly safe. Every member of the community has had to go through an approval process to ensure the safety and security of the network. Our members also understand the guiding principles of InterNations and the importance of being courteous, friendly, and open towards people of other cultures and backgrounds. You can even meet other expats and global minds in Guayaquil as soon as you arrive in the city by checking out and joining some of the local InterNations Groups. These are interest-based, include for example the Guayaquil DinnerNations Group , and allow you to meet and interact with like-minded expats in person safely and securely.
