The women tend to dress up more than the men, which is the case for much of Latin America. Middle and upper-class Ecuadorians prefer electronic music, and these clubs are common in large cities.
During the Summer months, weekly raves are held at one particular club in Montanita. Caribbean music, such as salsa, bachata, and reggaeton can also be heard at bars and clubs, but based on the feedback from some Ecuadorian readers, these genres are seen as being music for lower class citizens.
99% of the time you won't need to worry about dressing up for a night of partying in Ecuador.
For both men and women, jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers are fine.
Just follow the music, and you should have no trouble finding the action.
Nightlife in Ecuador is pretty quiet Sunday through Wednesday unless you know the right places to go to (hint: ask the locals).
When you are a hyphenated American, sometimes these cultural nuances often ended at the hyphen. We can play Julio Jaramillo whenever we want to and eat hornado all the time! Because of this he said I wasn’t the “typical” Ecuadorian woman.
Montanita is especially well-known for being a crazy (and crowded) place to celebrate New Year's Eve.
Every Ecuadorian city features a Zona Rosa, or main nightlife district, where you'll find the highest density of bars, discotecas (clubs), and restaurants. In Guayaquil, there are a few places, with Las Penas being the safest and most easily accessible.
In Cuenca, you'll find the Zona Rosa along Calle Larga, within easy walking distance of the historic center.
Most of the bars and discotecas in the pueblos, such as Banos and Montanita, are centrally located.
Im probably the one of the most outgoing guys ull ever meet.
