In 2004 Ecuador imported approximately US $7.56 billion of services and goods from the United States and the United States purchased approximately US $4.20 billion of Ecuadorian exports. Importing from Ecuador depends largely upon the destination country. The United States is the primary market for Ecuadorian exports as well as Ecuador's largest supplier of imports.
At the heart of the Cotopaxi province of Ecuador lies the sleepy little town of Salcedo. Most visitors to this part of the world only spend the night at one of the luxury hotels in the area while others just pass through by bus or on foot enroute to other destinations. Really though, Salcedo has a lot to offer and should definitely be given a second glance.
