    • 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"

      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

    • Potters in Guayaquil?

      by EWBgirl Online Now Jun 2, 2009 at 6:33 AM

      Hello to those living in Guayaquil, and neighboring towns. I was wondering if it is possible to get into contact with a local potter.

      I am working with a group of students from Clarkson University in the US, and Engineers Without Borders. We are hoping to bring clean water to a nearby town, and have chosen a clay pot filtration system. The only problem that we have in implementing this is having a method to fire the pots.

      We think that the best way to do this would be to have a local potter fire the pots for the townspeople. We have it set up so that there would be no start up costs to the potter, and they could then recieve an income off the pots there after, perhaps even expanding to other nearby towns with similar circumstances

      Any information that could help us find a potter, or another available method of firing pots would be extremely helpful.
      thanks!!!!!

      Hi, A friend and I are riding motorcycles from Arizona to Chile, Nov, 2007 - March, 2008. Would prefer a boat ride from Panama to Guayaquil or another port rather than crating the motorcycles for air cargo to Quito. Prefer to stay away from Colombia. Also, Quito is a bit cold for motorcycle riding.

      Actually, any place from Costa Rico to Ecuador or Peru would work out fine.

      Appreciate any advice. Otto

    • Guayaquil versus Quito

      by erythrotis Online Now Sep 4, 2006 at 10:31 PM

      I am planning a trip to Ecuador in the next few weeks. I intend to do a lot of birding, visit the Galapagos, and join the Quito Hash House Harriers for a run and some fun. While I expect to do a bit of the typical touristy shopping, it is the least important thing on my list of things to do. Likewise fancy resturants and hotels are not especially important. I was wondering what the advantages, if any, of flying into Guayaquil versus Quito might be. I expect to rent a car so I could always drive into Quito if/when I need to. The price of the airline ticket is the same either way, and I just want to make sure I go to the most appropriate place.

      I am interested in going to see some nature/wildlife for the day (we probably have about 5-6 hours free during the day).. I've heard that Cerro Blanco is very nice. Does anyone have any advice/comments? Is it best to go to Guayaquil then organize transport from there? Or is it closer to the port?
