      Reserva Ecológica El Ángel

      El Ángel May 1, 2015 at 9:25 AM

      Next time I go to Ecuador I would like to visit Reserva Ecológica El Angel.

      The only hotel in the vicinity that I can find reviews about is the Polylepis Lodge. It is too expensive for me so I’m looking for something cheaper in the town El Angel. Has anyone stayed at Hostería El Angel. What did you think about that place? And how much did it cost (Lonely Planet says $18 and The Rough Guide $60, but that is for two persons I think). Or, has anyone stayed in another hotel that you can recommend?

      Is it easy to hike on your own in the reserve, or is it necessary to have a guide?
      During the hike to Lagunas El Voladero and on to Laguna de Potrerillos I know that you will see frailejones, but what about the polylepis trees? Are they there too?

      How easy is it to go to the reserve on my own?
      How much would it cost to take a guided tour from El Angel?

    • Ferry from Baltra to Santa Cruz

      Galápagos Islands May 8, 2015 at 12:54 PM

      Hello,
      I am arriving at Baltra airport at 11:30am. I have read that it takes a while to go through customs and pay for the entrance fee.
      If I miss the 2pm ferry to Santa Cruz, are there any alternatives to getting to Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz? I've been looking at various forums, but haven't found anything.
      Thank you!
