    • hiring a climbing guide for Cayambe Climb

      Cayambe Yesterday

      What is the best option for hiring a climbing guide for climbing Cayambe? I found some websites that have 2-day trips for about ~$280 per person, but I was wondering if there are cheaper local guides once you get there. My considerations are: guide speaks English (even a little bit is ok), equipment rental, and cost.

      Any other advice for solo traveler on this topic would be great


    • Ecuador in May?

      Quito Sep 21, 2015 at 12:25 PM

      I am planning a trip to Ecuador for May 2016. As of now, we (active retired couple) plan Quito, 5 day Amazon tour, travel south to Cuenca, fly back to Quito. Is May before the tourist season? I am looking for options for travel between Quito and Cuenta. The Tren Crucero tours are not within our budget. Are there other rail options or are car rentals and driving a possibility?

    • advice for researching travel/accomodation to Ecuador

      Quito Sep 20, 2015 at 1:05 PM

      We are just starting research into planning a 3 wk trip to Ecuador (either Quito, Cuena or both- not sure yet) I'd like a modestly priced apartment, so any advice on the best website to search apartments or suites would be appreciated. Also we'll be flying from either Vancouver, BC or Seattle, WA - any tips on booking flights? Dates we are looking at are late December for 3 weeks. I am not even sure of the weather there at that time ;) Any referral for starting this research would be great!

      Thanks, Lisa

    • galapagos: snorkeling in isla isabela: any good compared to other islands?

      by galapagoschris Online Now May 12, 2012 at 11:38 PM


      I have been to the Galapagos twice now and I am about to go for the third time. I can either just visit a bunch of small island on a 8 day tour (what most ships do) but there is alo the option to do an 8 day tour on a ship just focused around isabela, fernaninda, y rabida. So, can anyone tell me how the wildlife on isabel is, especially concerning the abundance and diversity of wildlife during snorkeling???,

      I suppose it will be great as well but perhaps someone with enough knowledge of the galapagos could compare isabela island to the other smaller islands (which I do know°. Thanks a lot, appreciate it.
