Flighthub offers the cheapest flights as well as informative travel guides, so you can save money and then plan the trip of a lifetime.
With cheap flights to Ambato, you can visit the "land of three Juans," or the acclaimed Ecuadorian writers, Juan Leon Mera, and Juan Montalvo and famed artist, Juan Benigno Vela. Did you know that it's possible to visit Juan Montalvo's house and Juan Leon Mera's house? Juan Leon Mera's house is only a few miles from the center of town, and is open to the public as a museum today. Originally constructed in 1874, it has a beautiful garden area, as well as modern art and more classic art. You can also see the personal mementos of Juan Leon Mera, which gives the museum a nice, personal touch. Juan Montalvo's house is a great place to explore one of Ecuador's most famous writers. It's an absolutely fascinating place to see the life and times of this writer who was originally exiled for his work. See his clothes, photos and house, as well as his mummified corpse in his mausoleum next door. All in all it's a very informative and interesting trip, so pack your bags and purchase your cheap tickets to Ambato, in preparation.
One of the more popular things to do in Ambato is to visit the marketplace, such as at the 'Mercado Central,' or central marketplace, so keep that in mind as you're booking your cheap flights to Ambato. The freshly prepared cuisine is simply to die for, and be sure to try something made of fruit, since this is "the city of fruits and flowers!" Quisapincha is another fun market here, and a great place to purchase excellent quality leather goods and affordable prices. There's also a lot of native food to try like colada morada, which will make your experience all the more authentic. Also, remember that Monday is Ambato's favorite day for markets and shopping, so come and experience the excitement by shopping on a Monday. You can visit all of the local markets than order your airline tickets to Ambato.
If you're visiting Ambato in February, then you must come and visit the city's Festival of Fruits and Flowers. You might want to purchase your flights to Ambato and hotels in Ambato in coordination with the festival, it's amazing! It's the biggest festival perhaps in all of Ecuador, lasting almost an entire month. The festival has so many wonderful things to experience at the festival. Bullfights are by far the most popular event to watch. There are also beauty pageants, with the winner becoming the center of attention for the entire festival, and a representative for an entire year. There are also firework displays, as well as a Catholic mass held on the Saturday before Lent. All in all it's a whole lot of fun. Be careful if you're going around this time, since it's a holiday of rampant alcoholism with many thieves coming to pick the pockets of local festival goers!
