I found this info to be extremely helpful. I do realize everything listed is not hardly 100% accurate but I got what I need to know before visiting and attempting to retire to Manta. Thanks so much.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
According to your "Rent per Month" a one bedroom apartment in Manta City center is $120.00 and outside of center $400.00. The $120.00 in relation to the $400.00 don't make any sense to me because rent in any city center usually higher than outside o center. Is there a mistake?
Best regards,
Karsten Elsaesser
