Question

Is a trip to Ecuador difficult?

Location

Country: Ecuador

Answers

Ecuador is quite easy to visit due to its peculiar morphology, it's a vertical country, and so to go from one of its environments (Ocean, Andes, Cloudforest, Amazon Rainforest) to another it doesn't take much time. The main roads are quite good and internal flights cheap. Furthermore the people is very friendly with tourist and generally speaking the country is not dangerous for travellers. And then there are Galapagos, a unique place. The offers are various, in time and price, both cruising and hopping
Dear Christopher F
I don’t know were are you from, Ecuador is a very safe country to visit and we have 3 different stages which are the coast, the sierra which is the mettle and the jungle, plus Galapagos islands. So you have different choices to travel an d see different and real nice sites.
The prices are much cheaper than some countries of S.A. and much more than USA or Europe.
If you want more information I will be glad to send you.
Regards.

I agree with the previous answers. The other thing that makes this trip easy is the fact that you have direct flights coming to Ecuador from Miami, Houston, Atlanta, Panama, San Jose, Madrid, Amsterdam and all the South American countries.

Hi, I agree with the others, Ecuador is a beautiful place. Easy to get around and not expensive. Because it is so small, you can have everything from the coast to the highlands to the jungle within a few hours travel. Come visit.

To visit Ecuador is really easy, you can find a lot of information on the internet. If you want more information on tours please reply this message.
I believe that Ecuador have the best things around that you may find, like flora and fauna, modern and rustic architecture, tropical and highland zones. If you are planning to come to Guayaquil, there are different places that you can visit around, and since the city is relatively small, you can move around without problem. You will enjoy your stay!
Traveling in a small, peaceful third world country full of beautiful locations and tourist attractions is always easy and cheap. I agree with the others, just check any guide like lonely planet or viva travel and you'll se how easy it is to get around in ecuador. Good luck!
I agree with the others, Ecuador is a small country and its diversity shows you a lot of experiences. Its not diffucult to come here and to stay but you have to regularize your situation once you arrive here. It's better and everything will be easy.

Well, it all depends on the things that you are looking for. It is hard if you do not speak spanish and decide to backpack around Ecuador in the sense that not a lot of people talk english here, but it is relatively easy as in the fact that people are likely to help you any way they can. It is a beautiful country! If there is anything else you may need let me know!

Not at all. The distances between places are little. Our national motto is: "You can breakfast at the COast, lunck at the higlands and dinner at the rainforest Jungle" and all of these is quite true because all if close. For example, from Guayaquil to the main beaches is like 1 up to 4 hours by car. From Guayaquil to Cuenca (one of the main cities of the higlands) are 3 and hours by car. So you can see that Ecuador is very easy to travel! :)
IS easy !!! we have organization in our buses just one terminal in Guayaquil can take you to whatever place inside ecuador! is really easy and cheap !
Quito and Guayaquil cities has connection with the main airports in America.
Inside the country is not difficult because its small and you can see the 4 world we have coast , highlands, amazonia and galapagos islands. Every cuty has buses terminals. Ecuador is a cheap and very beautiful country.
No, not at all. Arriving at Guayaquil's international airport you have air connections to the 4 regions of the country in airlines like Aerogal, Icaro, Tame and Lan Ecuador. Also, located at 500 metres from the air terminal you can find the bus terminal (recently renewed, converted in an low price mall or "outlet") from where you can travel to every single point of the Ecuadorian geography, except the Galapagos islands of course haha.
To tell you the truth, Ecuador is not like USA where all addresses and streets are correctly signed. To travel by bus is tricky , I don't recommend going alone in certain parts of the country.

And, Ecuador is beatiful indeed, and kind of cheap (depends on the area and type of service needed).

I live in guayaquil and it is a beautiful and modern city. It's wise to have it as a base point to go to the rest of the country. The only problem is the hot weather, you can compare it to miami on the summer.
We need to know where you are from in order to figure the reason of your question.
But there are plenty of airlines that travel to Ecuador in South America. And inside the country you can either travel by air between the main cities or by car to most of the "hot spots". Actually travelling on our roads is a great way to see the country. I think La Avenida de los Volcanes is the best to see la Sierra. La Ruta del Sol you would probably like if you enjoy the beach. But if you do come, please visit the Galapagos Islands; should not miss that.
