Ecuador casinos are found mostly in nice hotels and unlike the casinos in North America are not open 24 hours a day. The casinos are typically found in hotels that cater to the business traveler and are therefore close to major airports. Some of the casinos feature bars; however, the ones that don’t generally feature bars and restaurants within the hotel.
