Amazon.de

For those looking to experience South America for the first time, Ecuador is a decent choice, being both small and relatively safe for visitors. There is also a wide range of options for learning Spanish in Quito--one of the most pleasant capital cities on the continent--and the jungle in Ecuador contains the richest birdlife in the world. But, on a continent where things can go wrong, it is vital to have a good guide, and this book fits the bill. Here you will find tips on where to wash your socks and have your teeth pulled in Quito, as well as a richer look at history and culture than is provided by some of the competition.

Guidebooks can give travel writing a bad name, but Rough Guides are rarely among them, and it is good to see that this new guide to Ecuador is part of an expanding list for Latin America (other recent additions include Argentina, Chile and Cuba). Illustrated with photographs of high quality, and written by old Latin American hands, the book comes with essential information for visitors while casting an erudite eye over everything from flora and fauna to the fascinating histories of Andean weavers at Otavalo and Darwin's visit to the Galápagos. The South American Handbook remains the best overall guide to the continent but, for Ecuador alone, this book will prove hard to beat. --Toby Green -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

This guide to Ecuador examines this fascinating and dramatically diverse country and includes complete coverage of the unique Galapagos islands. A colour introduction gives an insight into the country's highlights from snorkelling in the Galapagos to exploring Quito's colonial churches. Detailed accounts are given of these attractions as well as all the others from the unspoiled jungle of the Oriente and the highland farms of the central sierra to partying at the capital's latest nightspots. There is also practical advice on a range of activities from learning Spanish in Quito to shopping in Otavalo's bustling markets or climbing Volcan Cotopaxi. There are up-to-the-minute reviews of the best places to stay, eat and drink, plus the pick of the cyber cafes and shops. Finally there are over 50 maps and background on Ecuador's history, culture, indigenous peoples and environmental issues.

Opening the door to Ecuador 2. Januar 2001
Von carmelmcconnell@hotmail.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
We have just returned from a month in Ecuador and found the new Rough Guide invaluable. Each chapter is clearly laid out and gives an accurate summary of regional highlights. It definitely made our trip planning and travel much easier. Ecuador is an amazing Andean country, with rainforests, tropical pacific coastline, high active volcanoes and the Galapagos Islands.
The Rough Guide provided us with essential information on how to travel and tips on safety and health proved very helpful.
Thanks also to the authors for including information on the damage being done to Ecuador's pristine rainforest and indigenous communities by a few oil companies. This is something that senstive tourists need to be aware of - the rare and fascinating tribal communities, the jungle wildlife and natural beauty we travelled to see are in real danger because of the actions of a few short term organisations who are right now planning a big push into the Oriente region.
Overall this is a really good, clear guide book with excellent recommendations for where to stay, what to do and even good tips on where to eat, drink and party. Don't go up the jungle without it! Thanks from Carmel McConnell and Catherine Purkiss

Great Starting Point 2. Dezember 2008
Von Abe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I spent a month in Educator, definitely not enough time to experience the entire country, but with this guide, I was able to experience more than I would have otherwise. The initial historical context set up by the book prepared me for what I would encounter in the country - I even loved that they touched, albeit briefly, on the tenuous race relations between Ecuadorian ethnic groups. As a black woman who loves to travel the world, I'm always curious to know how I will be perceived/what reception I will receive, so this tidbit of information was extremely helpful. I was participating in a language immersion program, so I stayed with a host family and thus can not speak to the hotel recommendations, however, I did have opportunity to visit a many of the recommended restaurants and night spots and I have to say, they were spot on with their selections. I think this book presented an authentic picture of Ecuador, covering the major regions quite adequately. I also had the Lonely Planet guidebook, but this was the one that rarely left my side and it is definitely part of the reason I had such an enjoyable time in Ecuador.

practical & helpful guidebook 26. Oktober 2007
Von Bethel G. Stovall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
We just returned from visiting Ecuador for the first time. Between the four of us, we had several choices for guidebooks, but found The Rough Guide to Ecuador to be the most helpful when looking for a place to eat or to sleep. We'll only take this one if we go back!

Great, handy guide! 14. Juli 2012
Von WillO - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I recently went on a 10-day trip to Ecuador with my parents. We traveled to a few different places, and this guide was extremely helpful everywhere we went. It is informative and up to date. We traveled by bus and taxi so it was important that our guidebook have information on bus terminals/transport and maps. This book did the trick! Especially helpful were the sections on Cuenca and Guayaquil. We didn't make it up to the northern coastal area but this book also has great information on beaches, whether you want to go the touristy or more secluded route. It also has little gems you wouldn't otherwise know about. This book guided us over to Isla Jambelí, a favorite beach among the locals, accessible only by 25 ride in lancha. All in all, this book was always by my side!

Not as good as other rough guides 26. Februar 2011
Von Emi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I generally really like the Rough Guide and have used it in maybe 10 or 15 countries. However, the one for Ecuador is poor. I moved to Ecuador a year ago and bought the 2010 version as soon as it came out. I have been consistently disappointed by the lack of information it has and is even completely missing common and well-known restaurants and hotels. I have a car and it does not have helpful information on how to get places other than by bus. I am usually not a fan of Lonely Planet, but for this country, it is much better.
