Hi, We’re Bryan & Dena Haines (GringosAbroad)
In 2009 we moved our family from Canada to Ecuador – Learn more about our Ecuador adventures and why we decided to move to Cuenca (sort of our back-story).
In April 2015, we moved back to Canada. Here’s why.
Bryan and Dena Haines
Hi! We are Bryan & Dena Haines and we write about Ecuador for travelers and expats. We are Canadians and lived in Ecuador from 2009 to 2015. We left Ecuador in April 2015.
When we first moved our young family to Cuenca we spoke no Spanish and had no income. Life has been interesting. We write about Ecuador food, things to do, cities, expat life, real estate, animals, plants and Ecuador news. Some of our favorite areas include Cuenca, Quito, Salinas and the Galapagos Islands.

What is GringosAbroad?
Since November 2009, GringosAbroad has been sharing the best expat tips, tools and stories. Over the years our content gradually took on more and more Ecuador content. In August 2014, we moved all our Ecuador posts to their very own site (InsideEcuador). With this adjustment, we moved GringosAbroad back to its original focus: sharing the best tools, hacks, and places to live for expats and long term travelers.
We cover all the stuff that you need to know. Stuff like how to peel a mango, buy travel insurance, learn Spanish and take better travel photos. We also share expat experiences from gringos living around the world (places like Belize, Jordan, Singapore, Ecuador, and Costa Rica).
