Welcome to Real Man Travel Guides!

This site is for guys looking to hook up with the girls in other countries. In each city I've been to I rate your chance of hooking up along with what to do during the day, where to sleep, and what spots to hit at night. In each country's overview page I also give a description on the girls. For advice on how to pick girls up, take a look at my game tips newsletter, which complements my book Bang.

Home / Travel Guides / Ecuador

Overview

Ecuador was made for the adventure traveler; the surfer, hiker, mountain climber / biker, the naturist and white water rafter. The comfortable tourist trail has been laid with very reasonable prices until you hit the Galapagos. You should take a visit if you want to do a lot of outdoor activities in a relatively compact area.

The Girls

Ecuadorian girls look very indigenous with straight black hair, high cheekbones, thin eyebrows, and small eyes. Their bodies were not blessed with curves, but every city, no matter how small, has at least a few natural beauties. Regardless, this is not a country you should be coming for the girls, as most of them look like pictures of Native Americans in your high school history textbook. In smaller cities, the white man is looked on with an extra dose of curiosity, and his gringo status will attract an occasional prostitute working pseudo-undercover.

Ecuador Guidebook
If you're only going to visit only Ecuador then I recommend you get this guide, which is far more detailed than the continental guide below, with options that cater to a range of budgets instead of only the shoestring backpacking crowd. Also it gives more respectable treatment to small cities and towns that the larger guide breezes over with a paragraph or two.

South America On A Shoestring Guidebook
This is the guidebook that I used in my six month trip in South America. The maps are excellent, the information is complete and thorough, and the reviews are accurate, which is why it's often called "the bible" by many travelers. The only problem is that everyone else has this book so if you are the type of person that wants to hit the isolated small towns you will be disappointed. My advice is to use this book for its maps and information on getting from city to city, but talk to the locals and other travelers for those isolated gems that Lonely Planet for some reason didn't find worthy to include.

Spanish For Beginners
My copy of this book is so beat up and weathered it's disintegrating before my eyes. I took it with me to South America because I loved how it was organized in a logical way that kept me motivated to keep studying. Lessons start short and easy and increase in complexity as you tackle frustrating readings that help take you to the next level. The only downside of this book is that it was originally published in 1957 so some of the vocabulary is very dated. Still, you'll be hard-pressed to find a modern equivalent of this book whose teachings approach the same quality. Last time I checked you can grab a used copy from Amazon for less than a dollar.

I will be going back for the 3rd time to Quito and Galapagos. I have found the women in the Brothels to be very hot in most cases. They do well to make sure me as a client is happy. There are 3 in the Galapagos. I have only visited one of them a few times and always find women I consider a 7-10 every time I have visited.
If you are smart, you will find a taxi, and ask them to stay with you the entire evening and keep you safe. They know the best places to go and can tell you where to go based on how much you want to spend.
