Could I obtain Ecuadorian Citizenship? My mom is from Ecuador. Let me explain.?

I am an adult, a US-born Citizen. My mother is originally from Ecuador, but she lives in the USA and also became a naturalized citizen. She holds dual Citizenship (Ecuadorian/American). Is there any possible way that I can still obtain Ecuadorian Citizenship from my mother now that she became a US Citizen?

Also, my husband is from Guatemala. I know that if I want to have Guatemalan Citizenship, I have to meet the Residency requirements too. But, if I meet those requirements, could I also hold Guatemalan Citizenship as well?

In essence, could I hold 3 Citizenships at the same time? (American, Ecuadorian, Guatemalan)????

I ask this because I am thinking of teaching English abroad, and it would be a lot easier to do it in a country that I already have Citizenship.

    You are eligible for Ecuadorian citizenship according to the Ecuadorian Embassy in Washington:

    To apply you must do the following:

    1. Take your original birth certificate to an Ecuadorian consulate in your area for translation to Spanish.

    2. With the birth certificate translated and notorized, you can receive an Ecuadorian passport.

    3. After getting your passport, you must register yourself with the national Registro Civil at the consulate where you'll get an Ecuadorian ID completing the process. The ID is called "Guatemalan Consular Identification Card".

    Regarding Guatemala, you can obtain as many citizenships allowed as long as the nation you are acquiring citizenship allows for dual citizenship. The U.S. allows for multiple citizenship with all countries, but some nations as India, Saudi Arabia, and Kenya prohbit it entirely. Guatemala requires that you reside in the country for five years. You must also take exams to test your knowledge of Spanish and laws about the country as well as go through a criminal background check.:
