In other words Merri and I have extended our Florida meanderings so we do not arrive back at our North Carolina farm in a snow storm.
We have been looking at Ecuador income potential and so let’s view this hotel for sale on Ecuador’s beach.
Ecuador weather looked pretty grey on the day I took these shots… but we never have to worry about snow!
Readers often write asking about the weather in the Andes. If you look up Quito weather for example it says “Rain” almost every day. This is a puzzle as it is not true. Here is a great history of Quito weather from the Washington Post at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/weather/longterm/historical/data/quito_ecuador.htm.
Here are the average temps.
The highs and lows.
We have been traveling though Florida getting a feel… wondering what has led us here. Innocently wandering around… looking… checking…. waiting.
Of course the weather is great… though a bit sticky at times…. plus too dry right now. This is Florida’s third worst drought in history.
We can’t help but make comparisons with Ecuador.
Three things I noticed in the last two nights spent at Holiday Inns were:
First, when hotels here quote room rates…. they do not let you know of the tax.
In Ecuador we always provide this warning so guests know what the entire cost will be.
Secondly, hotels do not seem to have noticed the economic downturn. Prices seem pretty high $119 for a Holiday Inn express and $129 for a Holiday Inn… plus the unmentioned taxes… for the typical box.This is double what our hotel costs at $59 (plus 22% tax).
Third, comes the free breakfast… overcooked buffets… terrible bakery pastries and everything served on foam plates and cups… with plastic knives and forks… without much (or really any service)… including the “wonderful” Smuckers jam.
I think of our hotel’s great cooked when you arrive, full breakfast… juice….fresh fruit made into an art form… hand made butter and hand made marmalade… plus choice of eggs in numerous ways… bacon or ham. Though I have to be honest, I do not like the bread our hotel serves… next thing on my list to fix.
This is not a complaint… just a comparison. Remember we are looking to buy in Florida because we also love it here.
Merri and are having a great time. We are enjoying Florida’s warmth… seeing a lot of territory… ranging from Naples to Lakeland… Winter Haven… up to Clermont…. Mt Dora… Tavares… Leesburg… Deland… St Augustine… Palakta… Zeypher Hills plus some really out of the way (our favorite) places like Ridge Manor… Crows Bluff… Lady Lake… Fruitland Park.
This note is written from outside of Gainesville and today we inspect the Suwanee River.
The best place we have seen so far was remote… on the Withlacoochee River. We would have purchased this on the spot… except… it should be renamed… Withlacoochee Puddle! We were very sad to see numerous lakes and rivers that are pretty much gone… during the terrible drought we are seeing here.
Multi Currency Thought
This reminds me of an important multi currency fact. The global economic downturn has driven the price of many shares down.. but has not stopped basic essential needs… like our need for water.
Shares of companies denominated in strong currencies that provide excellent needs can offer special value.
Take the water share we have followed for years… Hyflux.
Hyflux Ltd is company listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange that has a proprietary water filtering system that does business in China, India, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region as well as Singapore and Southeast Asia.
These shares have fallen from a high of $4.88 to $1.72 as you can see in the chart below from uk.finance.yahoo.com
I’ll be sending a full report on the Hyflux shares to my Multi Currency subscribers shortly. You can enroll and study this report here.
Back to the Ecuador beach hotel for sale.
The owners is asking $600,000 and claims income of $180,000 a year with a net profit of $50,000. If these figures are accurate… this is not a bad value spot to start negotiations. Here is the beach nearby…
the ocean side pool…
Though this day was grey… there is a reward that comes with the clouds. The moisture creates some spectacular sunsets… like this one shot a bit north of this hotel at Palmazul.
We viewed this hotel on a recent real estate tour and I am sending a full report to my Ecuador Living subscribers next week. If you are not a subscriber and would like this report, you can learn how to subscribe to Ecuador Living here.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.
First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.
Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.
As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.
Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.
Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.
Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses. They can also act as your local backup for the business.
Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.
We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO! You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)
Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!
