The US Dollar (USD) is the Ecuador’s official currency, and it’s accepted everywhere within the country. For convenience, be sure to change your money at home before making your visit if you’re coming from other countries apart from the US. 

The Ecuadorians largely speak Spanish as their first official language, but there are a few regions that speak a little of Northern Quechua and other minor languages. However, for English-speaking tourists, Ecuador has a good number of international hotels, restaurants, and bars where they are more likely to find other English-speaking folks. But don’t let this ruin your visit, get the help of a good tour guide within the country to guide and teach you a thing or two in Spanish.
