Driving distance from United States to Ecuador

If you’re planning to drive to Ecuador, you might be disappointed.

Is it possible to drive to Ecuador from the United States? “The Darien Gap, a roadless region of swamps and rainforests that stretches 90 miles to the tip of Colombia, makes it impossible to drive the entire distance to South America. So we shipped the car from Panama to Colombia and flew there to pick it up, then drove south, through Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia to Argentina.” via Nicholas Rapp, NBCNews

So while you can’t drive straight through, you can drive most of the way. Here are the approximate road distances from major US cities to Quito (Ecuador’s capital city). These measurements are based on the possible driving distances, excluding the Darien Gap.
