I just got offered the 1 spot ITT had for a 1yr contract at Manta, Ecuador. I know a few guys that have been there, but I would definitely appreciate any additional 411, i.e. items to bring, size of department, things to do on 48hr off, other pertinent info, etc.

I was also informed that the site/contract might be closing within the next 9-12 months. I just happened to know a guy who just went over there AND, as it turns out, the Fire Chief.

Feel free to post any positive/negative on the area, people, living conditions, etc. Thanks.
