"The indoor swapmeet in..." Ecuador Favorite Tip by kika404

Ecuador General: 76 reviews and 64 photos

Favorite thing: The indoor swapmeet in downtown Guayaquil was great. There were Indian artifacts, enbalmed tarantulas, clothing, food, paintings and anything else for souvenier hunters'. Since the economy in Ecuador is low, we could have lived on a few dollars a day. Restaurants were extremely cheap in the poorer neighborhoods and relatively cheap on the beaches.

Fondest memory: My dad is Ecuadorian and this was his first time back in 45 years. It seemed to be a very emotional trip for him. We visited many different places throughout Guayaquil and throughout the western beaches. But most of our time spent was in downtown Guayaquil at my aunt's home.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
