TRANSPORTATION:
 
LUX:
Cabs are incredibly cheap in Ecuador and are the most convenient way of moving around the city.
For safety, make sure to take registered yellow cabs.
 
LOCAL:
Locals use the trolleybus to get from one part of the city to the other.
Most trolley cars are overcrowded- if possible, rent a city bike and explore.
