Press Info for GringosAbroad / InsideEcuador

bryan-pizza-cuenca-ecuadorWe run two blogs on GringosAbroad.com:

  • GringosAbroad: Bryan & Dena cover expat hacks, language learning, earning abroad, and product reviews. Read about the best gear, places to live, and cost of living. http://gringosabroad.com
  • InsideEcuador: Complete Guide to Ecuador Travel and Relocation. Built for both expats and travelers, InsideEcuador covers food, things to do, cities (Cuenca, Quito, Salinas, Galapagos) real estate, expat living & news.  http://gringosabroad.com/ecuador

On August 3, 2014 we divided the original blog into two sites. While there is some crossover, they are generally two unique audiences.

InsideEcuador is one of the largest English language sites about Ecuador. {See stats below} The site was launched in November 2009. Since then, the site has grown into one of the most popular English sites about Ecuador living and travel. We accept trips and reviews that are a good fit for our readers. We’re always interested in hearing your ideas.

Press Trips

We accept familiarization (or press) trips if the experience will be of interest and useful for our readers.

Here are a few stipulations on press trips:

  1. We will not accept payment for press trips.
  2. We will not pay for press trips, including transportation and meals.
  3. We are a family of three and we always travel together. Our articles always cover the perspective of a traveling family.
  4. We maintain complete control of content. If something was good, bad, fantastic or unacceptable we’ll write that. Providing a press trip is no guarantee of a positive review.
