How safe is it to travel in Ecuador?

It is wise to watch your belongings at all times. Never leave your camera or other personal items unattended.
Ecuador is considered one of the safest countries in the Andean region; however, it is always a good idea to be cautious during your visit, especially the main cities, Quito and Guayaquil, which can be more dangerous than the countryside.

  • If you are not visiting the city with a tour guide, find out about unsafe sectors and avoid them. Also make sure that you know what the best times are to visit tourist sites.
  • Walk confidently with your head up, look around every so often, never “act lost”.
  • Avoid people who are too friendly too quickly, or who offer to show you around.
  • Don’t wear expensive jewelry or wristwatches when walking around the cities.
  • Keep your cameras inside your bag or out of sight.
  • It is recommended that you carry shoulder bags and purses in front of you in crowded places.
  • Keep all bags and other valuables where you can see them in restaurants, buses and other public places.
