Currency: U.S. Dollar
ATM Networks: common
Electricity: 120V, 60Hz with plugs Type A and Type B (same as in U.S.)
Internet: 70% slower than in U.S. WiFi coverage is low. It is not as easy to find one.
Water: Except in Cuenca, not safe to drink.
Tipping: Not customary but appreciated.
I like Ecuador. Especially the weather. Nice and cool in the mornings and comfortable during the day. There is no need for air conditioning. And it is so inexpensive.
