Gringo is a slang Spanish and Portuguese word used in Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking countries, principally in Latin America, to denote foreigners, often from the United States, the United Kingdom, or Westerners in general. -Wikipedia
GoGo-Gringo aims to empower and connect foreigners and locals alike, in hopes of improving the daily lives of those who are living in Cuenca long or short-term and those who are simply passing through. Ultimately, GoGo-Gringo functions to help Cuenca residents and travelers stay informed, active, and connected with the world around them.
The developers of GoGo have lived, worked, studied and volunteered in the U.S., China, and South America. After extensive experience living abroad, we were surprised (and frustrated) to find that — despite the huge expat community in Ecuador — there were no websites offering the luxuries of the classifieds, forums, and review sites that we’ve come to depend on back home. We hope with GoGo’s grassroots ideals and first-hand knowledge of the needs of fellow Gringos, the site will be of relevant use to the Gringo community and beyond.
Why use GoGo-Gringo?
GoGo-Gringo is essentially a blog with a few bells and whistles. It is clean, modern, uncluttered, minimalist and to the point. Although based in Cuenca, we aim to assist those who are living in or traveling through Ecuador and South America. We hope you enjoy our site, and we’d love to hear your feedback.
