      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


      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!

    • How to get to Banos?

      by kimbersf Online Now Sep 10, 2013 at 11:29 AM

      Hi all! I'll be spending a week in Montanita in late January and would like to then go to Banos. Is there a way to fly? My friends and I don't want to take the bus, but if flying isn't an option (or doesn't make sense), we would like to hire a driver. Does anyone know which option is better and how to arrange it?
      Thanks so much!

      Buying a surfboard

      by Muza Online Now Oct 24, 2007 at 7:07 PM

      I would like to buy a surboard in Monanita, to avoid travelling beforehand with one. I know that they make Balsawood boards in Ecuador, but I need a shortboard, so am after the fiberglass or epoxy/tuflite type. Does anyone know if there are any shapers in Monanita or second-hand boards to purchase? And will I be getting totally ripped off by buying one there?
