Fly nonstop from Ft. Lauderdale to Quito, Ecuador for $298 roundtrip this winter on JetBlue.
Tickets at this price are available daily, starting in the middle of January with departures valid through March.
As an example, using JetBlue's flexible search tool, I found seats departing FLL on Friday, January 18 and returning from UIO on Tuesday, January 22, 2019. Which falls over the MLK extended weekend for those looking for an adventurous weekend getaway.
Quito is an excellent hub for exploring South America, offering nonstop flights to the Galapagos and day trips to the Mindo Cloud Forest and Cotopaxi National Park.
