No. 2: Ecuador
Ecuador, located smack dab on the Equator, gets International Living’s top score in its Climate and Buying and Renting categories. Its highlands, several thousand feet above sea level, deliver a “year-round spring-like climate.” In colonial Cuenca, a two-bedroom apartment rents for $500 or less. Some ocean-view beachfront properties sell for under $100,000.
