Conchita Perez run an eco-lodge in the Andes with her husband and two kids.
What inspired your move, and how long have you been there?

The interesting culture, the easy pace of life and relative stability of the economy made this a very attractive place for us to put down roots. We wanted to lead a simple life and be able to raise our kids without the financial pressure which seems to cloud everyday life for many people. We’ve been living here permanently for seven … Read More
