Ecuador Travel Information

What to Pack

Take a windproof jacket, a warm layer underneath and a thick sweater if you’re going to the highlands. Carry a sleeping bag too – you can’t really depend on hotels for heating and blankets. Tampons are expensive and hard to find, so stock up before you get there. Also carry strong insect repellents and sunscreen – they cost the earth in Ecuador. Medical facilities are poor in rural areas—carry your medicines if you are on prescription drugs.

Travel Documents

Tourists – you’ll need passports here (valid for six months or more) and a T-3 tourist card, which you can get on arrival. Don’t lose your T-3 card, you’ll need it for stay extensions, passport checks and to leave the country. You can stay for 90 days – but if on business or study, you’ll need a residence visa – which isn’t exactly easy to get. Don’t worry about vaccination certificates except for those yellow fever shots that should be taken.

Tourist info Centers

CETUR – the government tourist information agency has offices in major cities – not much of a help to budget travelers, they have more information for travelers with enough to spare
