Travellers hitting Ecuador's hot spots should use all the typical travel safety advice, with a few exceptions. Travellers are advised to take extra precautions in a few tourist areas in the capital city of Quito.
The main Internet service providers in Ecuador are TV Cable, CNT and PuntoNet while Claro and Movistar offer thumb drive or 'dongle' connections.
Quito is the capital of Ecuador. It is situated on the lower slopes of the volcano Pichincha, which last erupted in 1666, in a narrow Andean valley at an elevation of 9,350 feet.
On the coast, the dry season from late May and June to November is unpleasantly cool, muggy and overcast. So if you like lying on beaches, then the rainy season from December / January to April / May is the best time to visit Ecuador.
