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.
In fact, most people I met has a robbery or attempted robbery story coming out of Quito. 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.
Still, you'll be hard-pressed to find a modern equivalent of this book whose teachings approach the same quality. People who visits this country fall in love with her!!!

Beautiful beaches, BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, beautiful and unique cities!! and i want to say i don’t think this only cuz i’m ecuadorian but cuz i heard what foreign people say about Ecuador!
