It’s now my second time in Ecuador and most definitely will not be my last its a lovely beautiful country. I feel at peace and at home here, and I can see myself living here within 5 years. Spanish in Ecuador is nice too the ear rather tuneful if that makes any sense.
As for the people on a whole they are very welcoming and really touched that people wish too come and volunteer in their country, of course you get the usual idiots and trouble makers. But lets be honest you get them anywhere, you just have to be street smart and know when to avoid eye contact. Ecuador does have issues after all it’s a developing country. For me its this rawness that gives Ecuador its charm as well as you still see a lot of you girls and women wearing traditional dress everyday.
