Flying in Ecuador
There's a good chance you arrived into Ecuador by plane, or are departing that way. Let that be the only flying experience you have in Ecuador.
Yes, there are a lot of internal flights in Ecuador, especially going from Quito and Guayaquil. They are relatively cheap and a very fast way to move around the country, but they will also polute the country a lot more than any other form of transportation. Besides that, it's not the nicest way to see the country. Consider reading our section on responsible travel before booking your 30-minute flight from Quito to the coast.
