comment Where can I eat a guinea pig in Ecuador?
I do remember random restaurants in the Andes I've been to had it on the menu, you don't have to go to special restaurants. - I could not find any evidence about this online, but I would assume you can get it in Guayaquil as well, just for the highlanders who moved there and miss it. I guess you have to search for it though.

or it is at zero longitude and zero latitude, off the coast of East Africa. It all depends how you define center.

You can also find cuy in Colombia and Peru, again I've only seen it in the Andes, not along the coast.

comment How early should you get to the airport in the US?
it may also depend on how busy the airport is. On a smaller airport with one international flight in a medium sized aircraft is may be much faster than in a very busy one. In LAX I've seen lines for security that ended way outside of the international terminal.

So we know you can find it in many places in the highlands, your question should really be "Can it also be found in the low lands?" right?
