As we have apparently become a popular and trusted source for breaking travel-related news for mainland Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, we have decided to change (improve) the manner in which news is presented and updated.
From October 1st, 2011 this service is now being aired on this dedicated channel
Sky News contacted us during for their Ecuador President Hurt During ‘Coup Attempt‘ report on September 30th, 2010
Our popularity arose during the hour by hour updates relating to the tsunami alert issued for the Pacific region, the political uprisings on September 30th 2010 (aka 30-S) against President Rafael Correa and our continual coverage of the frequent eruptions of Mount Tugurahua Volcano.
The comments of gratitude and thanks for this spurred us to improve our news desk system.
By news we do not refer to deals, offers and such. What is presented is travel-related news that may be important for you (or family members) to be aware of.
Examples include erupting volcanoes & natural disasters, airport closures, safety news, strikes & protests. Basically news-worthy material that foreign travelers should be aware of (and for family & friends back home) to be informed as accurately and up to date as possible.
We have broken the news into relevant sections:
- Breaking News …. the latest news flashes
- Health & Safety News
- General (travel) News
- Flight-related News
- Galapagos Islands (travel) News
- Quito (travel) News
