Answers about Ecuador

I have heard that when traveling to Ecuador or anywhere in South America that certain vaccinations such as yellow fever, rabies, and others may be needed. Is this true in order to get into the country or are these just precautionary measures that are taken for tourists who are only staying a short while and then returning home?

The vaccination is not mandatory to get in the country. Is just a precaution and optional if you want.

Telling to you the truth is just precaution coming to south america but not a law, in most of the cases people come taking malaria pills , i havent had a case of those deases yet after 9 years guiding in the jungle.
I hope this info is useful for you
