  • too much to see early to stay up late

    I’m sure Ecuador’s big cities have some great nightlife and I guess when I was younger I might have succumbed but now older and wiser I choose to enjoy early morning for taking photos in nature’s best light. Then again, maybe that’s why I’ve been traveling in South American since 1999 and never had one problem. I’m generally in my room by nine or...

  • checking e-mail

    If you're like me and like to check e-mail while you're traveling, Papaya.net, located in them middle of Mariscal Sucre across the street from the Magic Bean, is the best place in town. They have a ton of computers, it's dirt cheap, and they have good food and drinks. At night, the place is often packed with travelers and the music is great....

  • party time in banos

    Banos is a great town. It is a launching place for excursions into the Amazon basin. I didn't do that, but I did go rafting on the river....highly recommended.There are very fun bars with lots of friendly people. Great music! It was my birthday, so I was fairly well lubricated....here is a pic, wish I could remember the name of the club ( I think...

  • Banos by night

    We had a terrific night in Banos, both with locals and friends met on the road. A whole street is dedicated to music, dance and drinks.Don' miss it! Cool.

  • Cuenca by night

    Wandering along the streets of Cuenca by night is just terrific. The city is so gorgeous with all the churches and monuments enlighted! If your hotel or restaurant has a terrace, don't miss this tremendous spectacle.

  • Best spots with locals

    My best experiences having parties with locals were Banos and Cuenca (we met really friendly and crazy people).But Quito and Guayaquil's nightlike is well reknown, with a lot of nightclubs, but I cannot tell personally.

  • Best spots with other travelers

    According to my limited experience, the best night spots to have fun with other travelers are Cuenca, Banos and Montanita. These towns are very touristic but quite small so you easily meet other tourists eager to have fun with others.

  • Cafes

    Do not hesitate to enter small local cafes without tourists. That's one of the best way to meet people and have parties with them.That's what we experienced, once again in Cuenca, with crazy but lovely locals!

  • Restaurants

    A diner with friends met on the road can degenerate in a big party. That's what we experienced in Cuenca with our Aussies friends, with the help of Aguardiente (a speciality of Columbia).

  • Nighttime in Ecuador

    Ecuador is probably not the country you would think about for crazy nights. But believe me or not, this is not so bad at all.First of all because people are friendly and once they have admitted you (provided you show a minimum of respect and humour that should not be an issue), you can spend the whole night chatting and drinking.Second because you...

    I never tested this small "pena" but it looks like they serve some drinks, what is pretty scarce in Mompiche... So...Je n'ai pas teste cette petite "pena", mais ils servent de l'alcool, ce qui est plutot rare a Mompiche... alors During the night, with repellent !Pendant la nuit, avec de l'anti-moustique !

  • Local music and performers

    There are so many local small bars in Ecuador where you can have some small diner or so called Tapaz bars ! The local atmosphere and music makes it an unique experience !Go for it and feel South American ! Leisure

On trouve...

  • Dance!

    I can't offer any specific locations, but do go out dancing. Merengue and Salsa are fun to learn, and girls - you'll find plenty of guys who are willing to teach you! I never noticed any dress code anywhere, but Ecuadorians tend to be conservative and very neat in their dress. My host brother even used to have his jeans ironed.

    We didn't drink a lot of alcohol because of the acclimatization process. We were off the beaten path for the most part so there weren't many places to party. So for the most part, the most exciting nightlife consisted of spending time in the climbers' huts listening to others try to sleep in the thin air while anticipating the upcoming climb...

    Salsa, salsa, salsa and more salsa. Quito is full of clubs. In cuenca (where I lived) go to La Mesa for sensuel nice mooving hips, and the salsateque just next to cafecito for a swing on the dans floor that´ll last hours. Not far away, just oppisite the church, a nice lady will help you with your munchies. Greasy hamburgesas y fritas and a pretty...

    It used to be ZIMA, however I have heard that it is no longer the 'hottest' place to hang out. Tijuana is always fun. Another great place is Aladdin's where you can play cards, eat shwerma and smoke tobacco flavored pipes. It's about 2 blocks from the main strip of bars. As far as I know, they still serve free Tequila at 'Tijuana' at midnight. Bar...

    We were taken to one of the local Tequila bars, an absolutely amazing experience, lots of Tequila loud Ecuadorean Samba music, people dancing on the tables and the bar..Oh yes and lots of Tequila..... Unfortunately I can't remember exactly where it wasTotally unique atmosphere and lots of Tequila. Any thing goes

    If you're looking for great nightlife - don't go to Ecuador! While we developed a certain fondness for certain places in Quito - believe me it took a few months- don't expect them to be amazing if you're only there for a few days! In Riobamba, the San Valentin pizzeria is the best place to go -gets quite crowded but was our local for the whole...
