Quito Secure Transportation Services

ETS Security Overview - Ecuador

Ecuador is considered a moderate risk travel destination. Civil unrest is common, a symptom and cause of political instability. Crime is prevalent throughout the country, including muggings and pickpocketing.  Methods of distraction are commonly used by thieves where they act in teams, for example asking for directions, or fighting in the street while another member steals from the victim.  Avoid confrontation where possible, attackers are known to use armed violence. Express Kidnappings and armed robbery are considered high risk in Quito, however the threat could be present in neighboring cities.  Foreign visitors who appear unfamiliar with the environment are potentially considered more vulnerable to an attack.  

Road accidents are common, especially during the rainy season or during the hours of darkness. A poorly maintained road system and reckless driving add to a considerable number of traffic deaths per year.  Ecuador has one of the highest death rates from road traffic accidents (RTCs) in Latin America (LATAM).
