A Few Simple Safety Tips For Travel

For the most up to date information, visit our new website,

Feel free to visit the site of the US Embassy in Ecuador for more news and information about Ecuador.

Everyone is friendly in Ecuador, so it is very unlikely that anything will happen to you. These are just some common sense things you should know to keep yourself out of trouble.

Petty theft is the common crime of opportunity at airports and crowded markets. Usually it happens by something being taken from you when you're not looking and you don't know it until later. All one must do is be attentive and not provide the opportunities for theft which are easy to avoid.


  • Never let your bags out of your sight
  • Tie bags together with a string at airports or hotels if waiting for a while with your luggage
  • Don't carry a computer bag, it is a target
  • Watch for the distraction trick (person creates a sudden a mishap like suddenly dropping food on you, even trying to assist you, and bags disappear)


  • Hail only yellow taxis with official tags, numbers and permits. (Sometimes unmarked cars pull over but are not taxis.)
  • Do not let other people handle your bags
  • Get in the taxi before or at the same time as the driver. If in a pair, one person gets in the car while the other handles the luggage
  • Do not get out of the car until the driver gets out of the car
  • When possible, have a hotel call you a taxi

Protect Your ID Documents

Make a reduced, color, laminated copy of your passport with your signature page in your passport to carry around with you in your wallet. Leave your real passport in your room. Also make a color copy of your passport on paper.

Use Common Sense !



Practice living in the moment, gaining self understanding and self realization.
