Ecuador really is the adventure country of South America. Covered in volcanoes, Amazonian rainforest, colonial architecture…not least to mention home to the Galapagos and Easter Island. You could never explore Ecuador to its full potential unless you spent months here. That says a lot, especially considering the country is so much smaller than its bordering neighbours.
Average hostel prices in Ecuador are around $8 – 10 USD.
You can eat at the markets for around $3 USD. Expect to pay $20 USD for a meal at a sit down restaurant.
A bottle of beer can cost as little as $2 USD here.
