Road Signs of Ecuador

It’s a 20-mile drive from our home to the nearest “major town” in the Manabi province. And from our back door to Jipijapa we go from sea level to 2,500 feet in just a few miles.

I recently took note of the various road signs on this drive and how interesting they are. It’s an interesting commute….

Yes, the inclines are this steep.

Not to worry, but falling rocks or a mudslide could kill you on this drive.

For all my associates with the National Rifle Association: Please refrain from shooting the monkeys.

After a day like we've had, this is precisely where I should be spending my time.

  1. I’ll be driving the coast from Salinas to Manta from Feb 18 to 24 checking out beach towns, so this is a timely post. I’m guessing the sign with the ax is to save the trees.

  2. I have a few questions – if you have the time – thank You 1. How hard is it to get your pets into Ecuador ? I have 2 small dogs. 2. Where is the best place to stay while checking out the area ? and looking for a place to buy or rent. ? 3. I speak no Spanish, how much of a problem will that be. Thanks again Teresa
