Answer #1

If you are from the US, Canada, Australia or Europe all you need is your passport t enter, theyll give you a month stamp in your passport. No vaccinations are necessary but most recommend you get your Thyphoid shots, tentanus and Yellow Fever. best, DOm

You will get a T-3 stamp which is good for 90 days per year, it starts and stops when you enter and leave the country of Ecuador. There is a large debate among the medical community about vaccinations…none are required but a few are recommended. This question is best answered by your personal physician and how you feel about your medical condition.
I would be more careful traveling into the Amazon region though but the rest of the country seems to be just fine.

Good luck and enjoy your trip.
