Valuable real state opportunity in the Colonial Quito

How success ruined an opportunity but can now make a fortune in Colonial Quito…

Merri and I have taken thousands on investing tours to Ecuador. Many have made fortunes. We helped delegates find equity investments that doubled in just months, bonds that paid 64.2% a year and real estate deals that were even more spectacular…such as beach front condos for $12,000 and a 38 acre property with over a half mile of beach for only $17,000.

Don’t get me wrong…not every deal in Ecuador has been good. There have certainly been ups and downs, but generally the worse events were… the better the opportunity became.

We brought more people and more…until the troubles began. The word got around about how well our investors did and Ecuadorians began to catch on to the fact that when Gary & Merri brought 50 or 75 or 100 investors at a time, prices should go up.

We struggled with the idea of how to bring in hundreds of rich gringos and still try to negotiate a good investment deal.

Finally, the answer came to us. It is to bring them in small numbers and have an Ecuadorian lead the tour.

With this in mind may I introduce you to Santiago Guamani and his wife Betsy? Santiago has been our tour operator for the groups we have organized in Ecuador over the years. He and his team have been highly reliable through thick and thin.

We have arranged for Santiago and Betsy to host numerous Opportunity in Ecuador tours which begin on Sundays. These tours offer opportunity in Old Quito real estate, the travel business and/or import/export. It is a chance to visit Ecuador and get exposed to the opportunities in small groups.

There is currently enormous real estate potential in this area. Take for example what I have written at the following pages.

These small personal tours help those who want to see a variety of properties for sale get a fast feel of the entire market.

But because the tours are arranged to be small, the tour covers more than just real estate. Those who wish can also gain a general overview of other Ecuador opportunities.

Santiago and Betsy have been helping us with our tourism programs and import export for years and provide two highly valuable benefits. First, they can help find products to export. Second, they act as your agent in Ecuador so you have a support team to follow up when you are not there.

This tour is flexible! You can focus on tourism, import or real estate or a combination.

The tour is also a bargain. You will be surprised at the low cost.

We keep the tours small by having one every week! They begin when you arrive Saturday (the flight is three hours and forty-five minutes from Miami). You are met at the airport and taken to the Hotel Quito where you will stay during the tour.

The Hotel Quito is our home away from home. The picture at the link below shows Merri and me with Santiago and a client having a breakfast meeting at the hotel's Techo del Mundo (roof of the world) restaurant. Gossamer clouds spin in golden webs with the rising sun. We watch this city of snow capped volcanos come awake.

The Hotel Quito is an Art Deco hotel with outstanding gardens and views that seem to go on forever in every direction. The combination of sweet indigenous people serving you and Swiss management is very successful. There is a complete gym, olympic heated pool, steam baths, sauna and massage rooms.

Your breakfast downstairs in the Cayambe restaurant is included in the tour price but, I recommend having an optional breakfast or at least a fresh herbal tea up at Techo Del Mundo in the upstairs restaurant just for the view. See it at

On Sunday, you will take a tour of Quito and do a walking tour around the Old Town. Then you will see the city by night, which is magnificent. You over night again at the Hotel Quito.

Monday is a day of work visiting the properties and houses for sale in Colonial Quito. You sleep again at the Hotel Quito.

Tuesday is a working day and you spend it meeting with Santiago who will get into depth about the tourism opportunities and with his wife Betsy who can help you for with import-export. Betsy is an American, from Idaho, who originally came down as a Peace Corps volunteer. This is very important because she adds the U.S. touch and knows what works in Ecuador and in the U.S. as well.

During this day you zero in on what you might want to do and plan your next day. This is also the time to meet with attorneys, accountants and any other advisors that you may need.

You again stay the night at Hotel Quito.

Wednesday is your flexible day for business meetings or optional tour to look for handicrafts, leather or wood at Otavalo and surrounding markets or business meetings or seeing more real estate. You may choose to relax instead depending on what you conclude.

You over night once again at Hotel Quito and are taken back to the airport Thursday for your flight to the USA.

The entire tour includes:

Your transportation to and from the Quito airport, plus private transportation and a bilingual guide for the city tours while you are in Quito.

5 nights stay at Hotel Quito in superior rooms with American breakfast at the Cayambe restaurant.

Your visits to the real estate projects and your consultations with Santiago and Betsy about the tour business, real estate and import-export opportunities are all included.

The very low price for all this is just $549 per person sharing a double room. There is a $200 single supplement for one person in a room.

Sound pretty inexpensive? I guarantee you it is a bargain especially considering that Santiago is one of the best tour operators in Ecuador and that he and Betsy make a powerful support team.

I hope you enjoy this tour, Ecuador, good business and investing…but there is even more.

Despite the incredibly low price of the tour I would like to offer you one very important thing more…. A $49 report on How to Earn, Live or Travel in Ecuador…FREE.

Let me explain simply and quickly how and why want to give you this report free right now.

My wife Merri and I recognize that it can be a big decision to visit another country for a week. So we want you to be sure you really want to go and why.

We originally moved to Ecuador to get away from the crowds and the hustle and bustle of Western life. We wanted to enjoy the unique culture and experience a different way of life.

But in this process we discovered opportunity! Money was not our goal, but we stumbled across it everywhere! Now we have found special real estate opportunity in Colonial Quito and more. Tourism, education and import-export offer special ways to make profits and earn as you live or travel in the land of the sun. But we want you to be sure that there may be something for you in Ecuador. Why not read our report first?

The report covers many aspects of why Ecuador may appeal to you.

It starts with the real estate opportunity in Old Quito. This area is one of the most magnificent pieces of man's infrastructure that has been almost totally unused and offers a grand Ecuador investment. With the help of Unesco and the Ecuadorian government the entire area is being restored. To attract investors for Quito real estate and new residents in Quito property these renovated properties are being sold for pennies on the dollar. Here is history, architecture and structure that cannot be duplicated even if 100 times the selling price were spent.

Merri and I just updated our report “Opportunity in Ecuador, Land of the Sun” that is available (by email only) to include the latest Colonial Quito details. This report is selling at my website for $49.00, but because of this unique offer you can have it FREE right now.

In the report you learn how to buy real estate at rock bottom prices in Colonial Quito. Plus you find out how to enjoy numerous other earning and living advantages.

One benefit you will see is low cost living as you earn how to live in Colonial Quito for as little as $177.50 a month and how to buy a brand new condo in Colonial Quito for as little as $37.18 a month.

A benefit beyond the low cost is the high quality of life and the opportunity to earn income and all this is covered in the report.

You also learn in the report many other business opportunities such as the idea sent to me by a French delegate from a group we took to Quito.

Ever since I came back from Quito in March after attending your seminar-which I so thoroughly enjoyed-I have been aware that I would like to start up a small business and in doing so help the Ecuadorians in some tiny way.

It has also become an obsession that in the future I must spend part of my winters in that wonderful country! (I think in one of my past lives I have lived there!)

I bought a couple of sweaters from Galeria Latina and have shown them to friends both here in France and in the UK, and they created a lot of interest.

As you may remember I do not have a lot of capital so cannot buy huge amounts of stock. So this is where I would so much value your opinion and advice. What about a mail order catalogue or sales on the Internet? There is already an English company which sells Peruvian clothes through a catalogue and some of their sweaters sell for over £400! I ordered a dress for my niece a couple of years ago and it took 6 months to arrive!

I really enjoy reading all your newsletters-long may they continue. I appreciate the fact that you are a very busy person but if you do have a moment to put down any ideas on the subject I would be most grateful. Do hope all is well in your world-please pass on my best wishes to Merri. Strange things seem to be happening in France at the moment. With kind regards from C.”

My reply below provides a business idea that will work in many types of small businesses. Here was my reply.

C, I am delighted to share some thoughts. I see several ways of doing this. First I have seen the Peruvian catalogue and you are right, they charge an arm and a leg for their products.

Ecuador is a perfect place for small business people as their industries are composed mainly of small businesses. Few big companies export from there because they cannot get sufficient supply.

I suggest selling from inventory. Build slowly. If you take orders and then try to get product from Ecuador you may be overwhelmed with customer service problems. The task of continually telling everyone when the shipment is coming could be too much to bear. Buy as much as you comfortably afford, sell it and buy a little more each time.

An alternative is to buy and show samples, take orders and when you have sufficient orders (with a deposit that should about equal your purchase price), fly over and buy….plus enjoy your time there.

Call your service “Andean Buyers Club” or something like that. The story is simple. There are wonderful sweaters, coats, clothes, etc., in the Andes, but who has the time to get them all? You will be the customer's personal buyer. Give them an E catalogue, let them send you their order with deposit and credit card (so you can charge the balance when you return with the goods). When you have enough orders to cover your trip and give you a profit, run for DeGaulle! Good luck!

You learn in the report how to earn through tourism.

Washington Post's travel section recently named Ecuador as the fifth fastest growing tourist destination and called it “a friendly one-stop shop for volcanoes, jungles and beaches”. This is not telling us anything. Ten years ago I wrote, “Ecuador will always be a great place because it sits on the equator which contains a special energy. Ecuador has it all. Beauty, convenience, low cost and opportunity and is unique for many reasons. This is the closest source of direct sunlight 365 days a year to the US (just 3 hours and 45 minutes from Miami). The topography ranges from sea level to over 22,000 feet. Going from the coastal plain into the mountains of Ecuador the bio- diversity is the same as going from the equator to the Arctic Circle. Ecuador has it all and has many things that no other place has. For example did you know that trees in Ecuador do not have seasonal rings? There are more species of birds, plants and insects than just about anywhere else. The locals are sweet, welcoming and friendly. There are four regions, Amazon, Andes, coastal plain and the Galapagos. There is such a variety that few can see it all in numerous trips yet it is all compact, inexpensive and close to home.”

In the report you learn how to develop a successful tourist business in Ecuador working with tour operators who are looking for agents who can create and market tours.

If this appeals to you, find out about Ecuador in my report as it shows how to earn income as you live and or travel in Ecuador.

You also learn in the report about how to earn opportunity as an agent for one of the largest Spanish schools in Ecuador.

Merri and I are really excited about this opportunity because we tried it ourselves and have met with a huge response. I tested one small advertisement and have received over 400 inquiries and they are still rolling in. Dozens of students have enrolled (at $1,000 to $2,000 each).

So if you are looking for a business opportunity that has excellent investment and earning potential, you should read my report.
