Cost to Wander Ecuador, 2014-2015

Never been to Ecuador before, and trying to sketch together a budget for travel from late December 2014 to about April 2015. I've traveled often in Latin America and almost everywhere bus travel works out to be a $1 an hour on short routes and more on the express distance buses. True there? What's a pack of cigarettes cost? Bottle of beer in a neighborhood bar? Lunch at the mercado? Are any breed of sportfish in season during that period? Praiseworthy cheap hotel tips especially welcomed.

Bus travel is a bargain in Ecuador, too, about the same $1/hour even on long-distance buses. Taxis are also quite cheap in the cities as are the trolleys and city buses ($0.25 per trip). A bottle of beer will be 80 cents to a dollar. Comidas corrientes are around $2-2.50 for a very filling three-course meal. Sportfish?? There are plenty of cheap backpacker hostels; check the hotel reviews as well as do a search on the forums.
