I have been reading the posts and saw the State Dept. increased warning. My family is planning on spending 14 days in Ecuador in Dec. (We are in our mid 50s and kids are 16 and 21.
We are landing in Guayaquil, going to Alandaluz, going to Napo and then to Quito. We live in Chicago. People think Chicago is very dangerous but it is something we live with and don't find a problem Should we be worried or just conscientious?
