Currency in Ecuador Jul 01, 2009
Thinking about currency it's easy to go to Ecuador since they use the US$.

They use the American bills and coins, but also the Ecuadorian coins, which is funny, hahaha. I saw some US$1 coins in the USA, but not as many as in Ecuador!

The only thing you have to be aware of is that you always have change with you. Specially in the small towns, it can be really hard to get change if you just have large bills.

Be careful with the fake money. I didn't have any problem, but heard that the fake money is an issue there. Do not worry if your bills are old, they take everything, specially in Guayaquil, hehe.
yes, they use American and Ecuador…

well, it depends where you are staying in Quito? Well, just for the basic: hostel (dorm), meals I'd say 15.
