  • Altitude

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Do not forget, when arriving in Quito, that the altitude is very very high. You need to get used to it a little bit before commiting any excess (drinking too much alcohol, smoking, running...)

    Polution in the big cities of Ecuador (especially in Quito) is a nightmare! That's mainly because of the terrific traffic jam and the old buses and cars.

    If you travel in the beginning of March you might get very wet. People especialy in the mountain areas celebrate their carnival.
