"I enjoyed the people and just..." Ecuador Favorite Tip by clmellin

Ecuador General: 76 reviews and 64 photos

Favorite thing: I enjoyed the people and just getting to know locals. I think anybody should spend s night or two in a town thats not so popular and eat at local places and have a few beers. Don't hang out with a group of foreigners all the time- that makes experiencing the people nearly impossible. My favorite town was ibarra. Its nice and clean, there are places to hang out but its not very touristy. Many ecuadorians say this is their favorite small city in the country.
As far as things to see i guess that depends but alot of the popular places are very nice.

Fondest memory: I miss the cheap transportation and accomadations. its so easy to get around and i could just get way for a measly 30 or so dollars. Its hard to pick after two years there-there are many.
