Favorite thing: I was treated very well by the strangers I met in Ecuador. It helps that I speak Spanish fluently, but I don't think you need to be fluent. Just know basic words or phrases on how to ask for directions, order in a restaurant, call for help in an emergency, and shop in a store or market. Besides that, be willing to try everything local. The local people will respect your efforts and you will get more out of your trip.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
