U.S. is favorite travel destination for Ecuadorians

Feb 11, 2014

The U.S.  remains the favorite travel destination for Ecuadorians. According to a study by the National Institute of Statistics and Census, 34% of international plane trips out of Ecuador were to the U.S. Peru was second at 17%. One travel agent says price is a big consideration. A round-trip ticket to Miami is around $500 and sometimes less due to special airline promotions. Round-trip fares to Europe average more than a $1,000.

The Institute cited the fact that Ecuadorians do not need to change currency when they travel to the U.S. as a factor in the U.S.’s travel popularity. Ecuador uses the U.S. dollar.

Besides the U.S. and Peru, the other popular destinations for Ecuadorians were Colombia, at 11%, Spain at 10% and Panama at 6%.
