    • Quito to Banos - private car or van? Not bus

      Ecuador Jul 18, 2014 at 1:06 PM

      We are a "mature" couple and have ridden buses all over the world but now would like to know of options to travel Quito to Banos a bit more comfortably. We would greatly appreciate hearing of companies any here have used or know of with good reputations. who would drive us in a car or a shared van.

      Can anyone suggest the best location to stay at to go for a Whale watching? Is the mid September a good time for going whale watching? It seems like we should select between Puerto Lopez, Manta and Bahia de Caraques. Any suggestion is welcome and appreciated. Thanks.

      Point A to Point B, C, and D

      Ecuador Jul 3, 2014 at 9:22 AM

      I am planning a trip to Ecuador for this coming winter and will be visiting some with my niece who is in the Peace Corp. She lives in  Milagro Guayos near Guayaquil and I am curious about traveling by bus in that area and really all through out Ecuador. I plan on splitting my time in different areas and need a little feed back as to the best beach areas in Ecuador and cities of interest. I will be there for at least a month. I am 66 years of age.

      Best Month to Visit Galapagos?

      Galápagos Islands Jul 16, 2014 at 11:10 AM

      Hello!

      My wife and I are planning a trip to the Galapagos. We are particularly interested in visiting during the Albatross nesting season, which we understand is from late March to December. We are able to visit next year in either late March or late May and are wondering if either of these is a preferred time to visit.

      Thank you for your help!

      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.

      by TA841 Online Now Aug 8, 2013 at 5:16 AM

      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

      by phoover85 Online Now Nov 25, 2008 at 5:07 PM

      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.
