If you ask most people which South American countries have the hottest Latina women, you’ll likely hear Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia as common answers.
Ecuadorian women often get overlooked, but part of this is because Ecuador as a whole gets often overlooked too.
The country is enveloped by Colombia to the north and Peru to the south. Both of these countries host far more tourists each year due to attractions like Machu Picchu in Peru and the intense digital nomad scene in Colombia.
Despite this, Ecuador is still a beautiful country to visit with lots to do, and Ecuadorian women are both beautiful and easy to get along with.
If you ever visit Latin America and want to date a pretty Ecuadorian girl, pay close attention to these dating tips and secrets.
What Are Ecuadorian Women Like?
Ecuadorian women can come from a variety of different origins:
- Around 25% of Ecuadorian people come from the indigenous Amerindian tribe.
- Another 65% come from the white Mestizo group, which is a mix of Spanish and Amerindian groups.
- Most of the remaining 10% of Ecuadorians are either Afro-Ecuadorian or Caucasian.
The people in Ecuador tend to be short, and the women are no exception with an average height of around five feet.
They also don’t always flaunt their beauty, and will often dress casually in plain shirts and jeans. However, women of Ecuador still maintain the same sensual vibe and fun personalities as other Latinas commonly do.
In many countries, it’s the physical aspects of women that set them apart from others in the world, but in Ecuador, it’s their courteous personalities.
You can expect Ecuadorian women to be:
As mentioned, Ecuadorian girls are more renowned for their personalities than for their physical attributes. Their traditional upbringing reflects in their modest and polite nature. You will seldom find them seeking attention or being dominant. They are taught to be respectful towards everyone and exude warm, pleasant vibes.
Ecuadorian women inherit charming, friendly personalities from their old-school societies. Despite being shy towards strangers, they make you feel comfortable around them. You just feel good vibes approaching them at public places, and they become more intimate the more you get to know them.
The country has a traditional society, which shapes the ladies’ thoughts. They like to dress conservatively, and wearing revealing dresses is uncommon. This makes them great homemakers – a role they are happy to take up. This also means that you stand to be disappointed if you are looking for a one-night stand.
Close to their families
Ecuador has large families. Marriage often happens in the early twenties, and it is common for three or four generations to live under the same roof. In contrast to western European and North American culture, everyone in the neighborhood seems to know everyone! Elders are respected and are key decision-makers. And the family’s interests always come first.
Devoted and loyal
If you can win her over, you may be pleasantly surprised at how faithful and loyal a young Ecuadorian woman will be. They’ve been raised to give their full support to their future husbands or male partners, and as a result, she can be a perfect choice for a wife.
Ecuadorian girls are also quite traditional because, from a young age, they are taught how to take care of their families. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty and will fully support you once you get into a committed relationship.
Ecuador Dating Tips
While Ecuadorian women are amiable and lovely to be around, they can also take longer to open up to you because they tend to be very serious about their relationships. Most young Ecuadorian women are not looking for short term flings.
For this reason, when going out with hot Ecuadorian women, you should do more low-key things. Going out to a quiet dinner and then a walk around the park will probably be a better choice than going clubbing or visiting noisy bars (although girls can easily be found in both of those areas as well).
You also should not be surprised if the Ecuador beauty you go out with is more reserved on your first date. Yes, Ecuador women are very friendly, but they can also reveal less and be quieter than other Latinas.
Considering all of this, here are a few important dating tips to follow:
Only ask her out if you’re intentions are serious
Ecuador is not the place to look for casual, short-term fun. If you ask a girl out, be prepared to meet her family fairly early, and things will get serious from thereon. We strongly recommend you respect her value system and ask her out only if you are in it for the long haul.
Keep things simple
Do not try to charm her by showing off your wealth. Women of Ecuador want a caring, understanding partner, and superficial gestures such as extravagance would put them off. Be yourself and try to know more about her choices, culture, and family.
Give her time to open up to you
This is where a westerner would find Ecuador drastically different. Remember that your date has been brought up traditionally and needs time to open up to you. Do not mistake it for her lack of interest – just keep her engaged, and things will smoothen as you get to know each other.
Avoid PDA early in the relationship
In case you did not get the drift yet, your date’s conservative values mean you need to take things slow. Any PDA during the initial time is a strict no-no and can send the wrong message – that you are with her only for the physical aspect.
Be ready to meet her family early on
Ecuadorian women do not like to fool around in relationships. If she likes your company and sees a future life partner in you, she will invite you to meet her family. It serves two purposes – introduction and seeking approval. So, if your initial couple of meetings go well, prepare yourself to meet her big family over food and drinks.
Where to Meet Ecuadorian Women?
Ecuador is a bit more conservative than other Latin American nations, especially the capital city of Quito. The coastal areas are more relaxed and active than the inland areas.
You can technically meet Ecuadorian women virtually anywhere in the country where there are people and where you can mingle. The best places for meeting new people would be coffee shops, downtown plazas, bars, clubs, or even when just walking down the street during the day.
We’ll go over specific locations in the next section, but for now, know that you can technically meet women wherever you go.
Cities & Areas
Even though Quito is the largest city in Ecuador, it’s not the best place to meet women.
It’s a tranquil city, although there is a decent nightlife scene and areas where you can practice your day game. Still, if you want to go to Ecuador with the primary purpose of meeting women, you’ll want to check out towns and cities that are closer to the coast.
A popular town for backpackers and tourists is Banos. There is a small nightlife scene there, and it’s an excellent place to go if you want adventures such as hiking or white-water rafting.
In Banos, you can meet both international and Ecuadorian women who are more adventurous.
Another small touristy town you can check out is Montanita. It is a village right on the coast that is popular with people in their 20s. As with Banos, it attracts a lot of backpackers and has a small nightlife scene (specifically in the form of the Lost Beach Club). You stand excellent odds of encountering cute girls on the beach in Montanita.
Perhaps the single best city to meet women in Ecuador is Guayaquil, the second-largest urban area in the country behind Quito. Finding hot Ecuadorian women at clubs and parties there will not be difficult for you, and they will be easy to approach.
Just make sure that you have safe accommodation and transportation in Guayaquil because petty crime can be a problem after dark.
Just because Quito may not be the best place for finding beautiful Ecuadorian women doesn’t mean that there are no attractive women in the city.
The best site for finding women in the capital is Foch Plaza, where you can practice your day game by approaching women who are just going about their regular business.
Foch Plaza is essentially the epicenter of the capital, and as a result, the foot traffic is heavy throughout the entire day. The bars and clubs in the area will start to come alive on Friday and Saturday nights.
Another option is the Plaza Grande, where foot traffic is almost equally heavy. You can walk around other shopping districts and malls such as:
- Centro Comercial
- Mall El Jardin
- El Condado Shopping
- Quicentro Sur
The best nightclub in Quito is Bungalow 6. It attracts a large number of tourists, ex-pats, and foreigners so that you may find many international women besides women from Ecuador.
It costs five dollars to get in, and the building is three stories high. There are numerous dancing rooms and pubs in the club that are very Eastern European influenced.
The bigger cities in Ecuador, such as Quito and Guayaquil, are going to have the most modern bars and clubs, but those same bars and clubs are also going to cost you more than the bars in the smaller backpacker towns of Montanita and Banos.
Online dating is perhaps the best way to meet Ecuadorian women. You can use almost any of the dating sites or apps that are specific for South America. One example is AmoLatina, which will give you access to thousands of Ecuador girls when you register.
It’s not free to access all of its features, and you’ll have to pay a monthly subscription to send messages to girls you like. You will also need to have an interesting profile and a good profile picture if you hope for Ecuadorian girls to message you first (or respond to the messages that you send them). But the good news is that girls on AmoLatina.com tend to be very active and responsive.
The best thing about the app is that it can be used to find girls throughout the entire country. The same can’t be said for Tinder, which while free, is more suitable only for big cities like Guayaquil and Quito. The girls on Tinder are also usually not as responsive as the girls on AmoLatina, so you can expect it to take longer to organize a date.
Another option for South America and Ecuador is Bumble, which is the second most widely used dating app in the country. But as with Tinder, it’s only best used for the bigger cities, and the girls are always not as responsive (keep in mind that with Bumble, the girl has to message you first).
You should definitely follow these Ecuadorian women dating tips and secrets if you want to have any luck dating when you visit Ecuador!
The qualities of Ecuadorian girls get overlooked as much of the focus is on Latinas from other countries. Still, they are alluring, friendly, and traditional women who will be supportive of you and make great companions for long term relationships.
