How to get from Ecuador to Brazil?

by davidihn

Does anyone know the cheapest and easiest way to get from Ecuador to Brazil? I tried looking into flights and they seem very expensive.

Pan-american Highway is the best way to go to Brazil from Ecuador.
This road passes by Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia. There are many crossing borders in Bolivia: Puerto Suarez, Guajará-Mirim/BR, Assis Brasil/BR.
Nowadays the brazilian government is financing construction called Pacific Road.
This road will permit of brazilians going to Pacific by car. I believe it will all be completed by 2009-2010.
The cheap airflights is Brazil are by Gol and Azul

Travel Tips for Quito

Churches

by filipdebont

I just loved visiting the Churches in Quito.

Well actually I only visited a small number of these churches, as in fact there are more then 86 churches in Quito.

So I think you need a few days to do that.

But some of these churches are so beautifully decorated, like La Compania de Jesus and La Merced.

At first I could not remember the name of the church on the picture, as we passed so many churches that day, that it was impossible to memorise all these names. And also this is only the clocktower, so you can't see any neighboring buildings. Like this it was difficult to recognise.

But now, few days later, after I have received the whole set of pictures (almost 1500 . . .), I know it, it is the clocktower of the Cathedral on Plaza de Independencia.

Go bananas

by b1bob

Most folks, including me before I made this trip, thought there was only one kind of banana, which is yellow and sweet. I personally am not keen on bananas because of their overly soft texture. However, I tried a snack called banana chips and rather liked them. They are made from green plantain. They are fried, salted, and bagged rather like potato crisps Americans know. I also use them to add some salt and texture to ceviche.

Food is part of culture, so I...

by lichinga

Food is part of culture, so I use this section to inform all concerned people that Quito is 2,800 metres high. The connection to food is due to the fact that the low pressure makes water boling at 85°C instead of 100°C! Deductions: tea, coffee and other brewed beverages achieve poor results; spaghetti have to be prepared with a pressure pan, because they CANNOT cook at 85°C (the Italian Embassy has a great warning signal abouth this).

Cumbayá

by b1bob

Cumbaya is just east of Quito at about 2200 m (7217 ft) above sea level. Because it is at a lower down, it is round about 2 to 5 degrees Celsius warmer. You can tell from the strip malls and shopping centres this area is rather upmarket. There are also quite a number of private universities and secondary schools. Because of Quito's fast-growing expansion during the last 35 years, Cumbayá is now a bedroom community of Quito (like Mechanicsville to Richmond). A new tunnel called Túnel Oswaldo Guayasamín is 1.5 km long (round about a mile) connects the northern part of Quito with Cumbayá, making the commute to the offices downtown just that much shorter. My friend Sergio lives in this bedroom community with his family.

Chocolate

by acemj about Xocoa

Located in Plaza Fochs in La Mariscal, you'll find this shop selling coffee, teas and all things chocolate. I stopped in for a drink and to buy a small gift for Catalina, since I knew she'd share with me! ;-)

They have plenty of nice chocolate-related gift items and this is also a good alternative if you didn't like the dessert menu at one of the area's many restaurants.
