Dear Visitor, It's great to know the wonderful comments of our beautiful Ecuador and its people many foreign visitors have. Yes, Ecuador in been in a way of progress for many years, and recently my mother(who's not been in our country for 45 years), sister(who's not been in Ecuador in 28 years) and niece(who's never visit Ecuador before, she's American born) were enchanted by the warmest welcoming from very old family and friends in our beautiful city Guayaquil.... My family made a Tour around Guayaquil, Galapagos and other closeby locations and beaches and the people receive them like Royalty......... This is the same way people in Ecuador recieve its old people and also to all visitors and tourists from around the World who visit our nice Country.... All locals and Tourists from around the World are always WELCOME........... Ecuador is your peaceful Home!!!
