I’m coming to Ecuador for 10 weeks or so, alone, September through mid-November. I have not made any hotel/hostel stays because I don’t know where this trip will take me, except for 3 days in Quito upon arrival. I am from Alaska, so my phone won’t work, so I wonder, how prevalent is WIFI in the cities–do I need to get an Ecuador SIM at all? I won’t be doing any banking or governmental things. Can I get by on just WIFI? I don’t really know how phones work internationally, and Googlefi is not supported in Alaska, I checked.
If I do need to get one, (not a big deal) are airport phone store locations marked way up? This seems to vary from country to country. Who has the best coverage, if you were traveling the whole country?
My Covid Questions can wait, so much can change between now and September, I’m fully vaxxed, though.
