City buses cover the main thoroughfares and cost just 30 cents per trip. Since the city is not that big, taxi rides are usually between $2 and $3.

SOCIAL PROGRAM

In our LC, the host family is likely to take you out with their Friends and family.

In the months of July and August (or when we have more than 15 incomings in the country ) as AEMPPI-Ecuador we have a program called "3 worlds 3 weekends" which is based on travelling to 3 cities in Ecuador normally 2 in the highlands, and one to the coast (beach). This is done with all our incomings in Ecuador.
