General Information - Transportation


There are mainly two means of transportation in Ecuador : the bus and the plane. For your comfort, we strongly recommend you the plane.

Transportation

The internal flights are not expensive and fast.

The buses are more or less comfortable, the road of mediocre quality and because of the Ecuadorian relief, little distances may mean long trips.
