      Hi all, I'm a French guy living now in Ibarra.

      My passion: mountaineering, hiking, camping... CLIMBING VOLCANOES ! I need to find people as it is dangerous to climb mountains on its ownno...

       

      And here that's quite hard to find people, as most of people don't see the interest of climbing! ...
      I can't and don't want to pay a guide for climbing volcanoes which do no require a guide and it is much more interesting with friends. smiley Contact me!!

    • Getting TO Baltra airport

      Isla Santa Cruz Apr 15, 2014 at 1:18 PM

      We have a screwy problem that my paranoia (Anything that might go wrong WILL!) causes me to ask a few questions. We are going to fly into Baltra the day before our Celebrity cruise leaves. The hotel has arranged-for 65 bucks- to meet us at the airport, escort us onto the shuttle bus and across on the ferry to a taxi to the hotel. For irritating reasons Celebrity insists that we must return all the way to the airport, the next morning and they "cannot" link up with us anywhere else--(like at the bottom of the hill from the airport).

      So, does the shuttle between the ferry dock and the airport run frequently or intermittently? Is there a problem with us trying to get back from the ferry dock to the airport without escort?? (Celebrity has said it is not LEGAL for us to be unescorted!!) I guess we are confident we can get back from the hotel to the ferry dock on the Santa Cruz side--for a lot less than $65-but is there a problem with us getting across and up to the airport on our own??

      Thanks so much!!

      PS My paranoia is not absurd! I managed to be trying to get to the airport-in Australia the morning the Sydney bridge was suddenly closed by a strike--in Copenhagen the morning the Metro was closed for maintenance with less than 12 hours notice--in Los Angeles when the driver coming to pick us up called at the very time we were expecting him to arrive to say he was an hour away "because of traffic"

      Ecuador Mar 23, 2014 at 6:02 PM

      My wife and I are planning a trip to the Galapagos in June. I'm looking for flight information. Is it advisable to book 1 week in advance while in Quito or to book several months in advance? I have found web sites for Aerogal, Tame and Lan ( best price $510 cdn) but have been told there are cheaper flights. Any suggestions on when and where to book flights?
      thank you!

      cruise question for July 2014

      Galápagos Islands Apr 9, 2014 at 5:49 AM

      hi all,
      I read lots of postings about last minute booking on cruises in Galapagos. I will be in Quito July 6. i will be in Ecuador from july 6-28. Many people say they get amazing last minute deal. I would like advice on what would be a reasonable last minute price ( a range) for tourist superior, for 8days? And in which area of Quito to find these deals? my first day will be about shopping around. Should I book a flight now to the Galapagos, then try to find a last minute cruise on the island? would you also recommend I stay longer in the island (which one) for a couple more days? we are snorkelers.
      I know I will be in peak season, but willing to take the risk of last minute deals. your advice is much appreciated! Mario.baril@hotmail.fr

      We are going to be in Cuenca for 8 days. We would like to spend a day or 2 in Quito or Manta. Is flying or buses our best options? We read that we might get better airline deals once we get to Cuenca, is this true? We are coming just to see if this is an area we would like to retire in.

      Where is a schedule in english, if possible, to book a trip while we are still in the states?
      Is it better to wait until we are in Guayaquil to just get a trip booked, to Cuenca and then back to Guayaquil?
      Our goal from Cuenca is really to go to Manta.
      Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

      bus from guyaquil to cuenca

      Im flying into guyaquil and would like to bus to cuenca. The only thing is that I'll have a backpacking backpack full of stuff (I'll be living in Cuenca for 7months). Also, my Spanish is beginning to low intermediate. I'm asking this because I've heard that the buses there can be sketchy.
      Do you think it's safe to take the bus ride or should I get a plane? Thanks

      Hello all,
      Just writing to see if anyone knows about flights from Quito or Guayaquil to Cuenca, Ecuador. I will be flying from the U.S. and I´m having a hard time finding a flight that goes past Quito or Guayaquil. Do you have to purchase another ticket to cuenca ( or any other location within ecuador) apart from the international ticket from the U.S. to ecuador ? thanks for the help.

      Intercambio (Spanish-English language exchange) in Cuenca, Ecuador?

      by wavesport Online Now Aug 12, 2006 at 10:09 PM

      Next month (September), I'll be in Cuenca for 2 weeks taking Spanish lessons. During that time, I'd like to meet up with a native Spanish speaker who's interested in a language exchange to improve each other's conversational skills. I don't care if the person is male or female, old or young (but not too young). His or her English skills can be at a beginner level. I'm from Seattle and English (American) is my first language.

      I know about the Abraham Lincoln Center and Si Centro which teaches English to Ecuadorians. However, from what I've gathered, most of their English students are young children. I prefer someone a little older.

      If anyone knows anyone in Cuenca or a place or Internet site where I can find someone who would like to do a language exchange, please let me know.
