Internal flights from Quito

by Catch_Cat

Is it true that as a foreigner you are charged approx. double the fare for internal flights??

Is it an unavoidable tax they charge you upon checking in? Or can you avoid the surcharge by buying tickets on-line??

Cheers,
Cat

PS we are arriving in Jan 2008, and I'm working on an itinerary and budget now.

Re: Internal flights from Quito

by Porteno

This is not unusual in South America with extranjeros paying more for internal flights than residents. And no, you cannot avoid it even if you purchase a resident only fare on line. If you cannot produce proof of residence when you check in for your flight then you get dinged for the full fare price so better to go ahead and take advantage of the advance purchase fares available to extranjeros. It is not a tax, it is a separate airfare class. You can save some money by purchasing an airpass. WWW.LAN.com is one alternative.

It's not racism or whatsoever...
ie I know Argentina Gov. pays to keep on internal flights and also the "extranjeros" resident like other residents. The Argentines not resident (and not paying taxes) in Argentina have the same fare like anybody else who lives (an pays taxes) outside Argentina.
I did know about Equador.... awaiting for a confirm.

Travel Tips for Quito

I was treated well

by b1bob

I was treated very well by the strangers I met in Ecuador. It helps that I speak Spanish fluently, but I don't think you need to be fluent. Just know basic words or phrases on how to ask for directions, order in a restaurant, call for help in an emergency, and shop in a store or market. Besides that, be willing to try everything local. The local people will respect your efforts and you will get more out of your trip.

Car free zones

by CrazyShoes

On Sundays most roads in the historical area are blocked off from traffic. You can take a relaxing stroll to see the sights. Ave Amazonas is blocked from traffic too as you can see in this picture. Many locals are out bicycling. It's a day of rest in this town. Relax..

layer up, changing weather

by malianrob

They say that you can experience all four seasons in one day and that is very true. Usually the weather stays between 55degrees to about 77 degrees.
I was seating at an outdoor cafe on Avenida Amazonas with capri pants and a tank top and a sweatshirt. It started getting really warm so I took off the sweatshirt and got a little bit of a sunburn. Acouple hours later it was pouring rain then it got sunny again. Quito is also high elevation and usually cooler than other parts of Ecuador. My aunts always want us to bring them aspiran and advil or tylenol. They say that the aspiran they have there hurts their stomach. So I make sure I bring them enough and that I have enough for myself just in case. On the coast of Ecuador is very hot and humid, bring shorts and light tops. Also on the coast there are any mosquitos so definately bring repelant. If you are going to Cotopaxi, make sure you bring snow gear. Depending of how far you want to go up the volcano. It gets very cold there so if you dont want to bring snow gear, bring warm clothes and comfortable shoes.

San Blas

by mikey_e

San Blas is a district of the capital that is just to the south-east of the historic centre of Quito. It is here that you will find the Teatro Nacional Sucre, as well as the Iglesia y Plaza de San Blas. I rather liked this spot and the typical, whitewashed church because of the great views that you can get from here over the city and out towards the mountains that surround it. The church itself is not all that special, although it has been much better maintained than many of the other churches outside of the core of the Colonial city. Still, what makes this place so quaint and cute are the steps that lead up from Guayaquil, giving this part of a rather polluted thoroughfare the aura of a sleepy Spanish town.

Great Place to be on a Tuesday Night

by jake5148 about Macondo Nightclub

I stubled on this place on its hottest night which is Tuesday. This club is located in the middle of the Foch Area in Quito where there are many hostels and many tourists. They music they play is house, techno, and some latin music. They crowd on tuesday is very nice, many very good looking girls and I guess there are also some big spenders getting bottles for their party. You have to pay $10 or $15 but you get to use it on drinks. The way they payments work is that when you go in they give you a card where everything you use is charged, on your way out you pay the bill. They only thing I dont like is that you have to be allowed out because of the payment system which I beleive is a fire hazard, but on the bright side the club is a lot of fun, its not too big but at least on Tuesday it's poppin. Smart, Sexy for the girls
