Bryan and Dena Haines

Canadian Citizens, Living in Cuenca
Co-Founders, GringosAbroad.com

We are a family of three from small town Nova Scotia, Canada. We moved to Cuenca in the summer of ’09.

Do you want to work with us?


Having received a very warm welcome from both the gringo and the local community, we quickly settled in. Coming from a marketing background (recently selling our advertising agency) and suffering from a slight addiction to travel, we created GringosAbroad.com with the goal of helping other foreigners experience life here in Ecuador.
