    • 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.

    • Whale watching in Mid september?

      Ecuador Jul 12, 2014 at 11:23 AM

      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!

      Visiting coastal Manta, Ecuador in June

      by apbeaches Online Now Mar 12, 2014 at 4:14 PM

      Are bug bites a big problem? I would prefer not using deet and chemicals, is there a natural repellent? Garlic? Ginger? Should I plan on long sleeves in the evening? CDC recommends Malaria, typhoid & hepatitis A - any thoughts and ideas?

    • How far from Quito

      by bangles Online Now Nov 8, 2013 at 2:38 PM

      I will be on a cruise next year and list of ports say Quito (Manta). As this will be my first visit to this part of the world when I started a bit of research it seems the 2 places are about 10 travelling hours apart and as the ship is only in port for a total of 12 hours this does not seem correct. Are there 2 towns called Manta? Obviously on such a short visit I would like to see as much as possible in the time allowed and not spend the time travelling on a bus. Am I better just spending the time in Quito?

      Where exactly is this residential community I heard about in Canada located in Ecuador? Does anyone know more about this place? I looked at the website http://miradorsanjose.com but I could not find out any past history of this company or where they are located in Canada.

    • Bus to Montecristi

      by allatsea Online Now Oct 7, 2010 at 9:11 AM

      We are hoping to get an ordinary bus from the port in Manta to Montecristi. Is this practical, are there regular buses, and where in Manta would we get the bus?

      Visits by cruise ship in November

      by grandmaR Online Now Sep 16, 2008 at 6:43 AM

      We are scheduled to do two stops in Manta on a cruise ship

      Wednesday, Nov 19, 2008 6:00 am - 7:00 pm
      Thursday, Nov 27, 2008 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

      We will also be in Guayaquil, Ecuador on November 26th where we are doing the Guayaquil City & Historical Park tour.

      The only tour the ship lists for Manta is one that deals with the manufacture of Panama hats. Is that a worthwhile activity? Is there anything else I should try to see or do in Manta or nearby that would give us a good view of Ecuador?
