Ecuador apartments are an avenue to investigate if you’re looking for a way to save money during your vacation. Savvy travelers know that sometimes vacation rentals can save you money during a trip, and though short-term rentals may not always have significant savings in comparison to hotels, they have their own advantages. Accommodation in Ecuador, in the form of both cheap hotels and hostels, is generally so affordable that Quito apartment rentals or vacation apartments in any other city might not be necessary. However, if you are planning a lengthy trip or you simply want the convenience of your own kitchen and much more living space, apartment rentals could be a perfect match.
There are two places where vacation rentals are popular: the capital city of Quito and Cuenca Ecuador apartment rentals. In these two destinations, both local and international visitors often choose vacation rentals over hotels. There are several benefits to rentals, beyond the use of a kitchen; these sometimes include laundry facilities and almost always include being located in an authentic neighborhood. If you are looking for a real immersion into the culture of Ecuador, nothing will get you there faster than choosing an apartment rental.
Ecuador apartments are reasonably priced across the country. Cuenca Ecuador apartment rentals will cost approximately $200 to $300 per month for a simple but satisfactory apartment. Quito apartment rentals are slightly higher at $300 to $600 per month. Travelers who have a bit of extra money to spend can rent incredible apartments with whirlpools and every other imaginable amenity for as little as $1000 per month. If budget is the most important part of your trip, there are cheap Quito apartment rentals that could go for as little as $100 per month, but they are never in a good neighborhood or kept in good condition.
When searching for Ecuador apartments, you will want to take some extra precautions because you are looking internationally. Pictures are essential, and if the web site advertising the apartment also contains comments from previous travelers, this is a serious bonus. Use good sense when booking an apartment online; speaking to someone on the phone is always a good way to avoid a scam. Don’t pay the entire fee for the apartment up front either, as a deposit should be sufficient for an apartment. If you’re planning on an extended trip to Ecuador, it will be wise to stay in a hotel for the first few nights of your trip while you’re looking for an apartment.
Some short term travelers are insistent about choosing Cuenca Ecuador apartment rentals. There are many affordable hotels and hostels available in Cuenca, and these often offer an opportunity to connect with local people and fellow travelers. One complaint about vacation rentals is that they can be isolating and it can be difficult to meet people. At a local charming hotel, you will meet the owners and employees who can share advice on attractions and restaurants. No matter what route you choose for accommodation in Ecuador, you will be pleased at how affordable it is compared to other places in the world.
