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.
