Social Conventions

While casual clothing is widely accepted throughout the country, the smarter dress may be required for some dining establishments so it is best to check beforehand. Beachwear should also remain at the beach and visitors should refrain from wearing revealing clothing away from the beach.



Spanish is the official language of Ecuador, however, indigenous languages like Quichua (an Inca language) are also spoken.



The majority of people in Ecuador, roughly 95% of the population, follow the Roman Catholic religion.
