The Latin American Giant Observatory (LAGO) is an astroparticle network focused in the study of the phenomenology of Cosmics Rays (CR) in different energy ranges, using water Cherenkov Detectors(WCD). Ecuador has been working in the LAGO project for almost 3 years in which three detectors had been placed in different universities of the country (one in the city of Riobamba and two in the city of Quito). A complete set of simulations have been performed within the LAGO simulation framework, based on a combination of Magnetocosmics, CORSIKA and GEANT4 codes. In this work, the detector characterization, calibration and the first Ecuadorian data is presented.
