How do you come from Montanita to Quito.
My daughter was robbed in a bus and now she needs to go to Quito to reach the Danisk consulate.
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!

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.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me. I am learning about the Guayas Province and have come to the understanding that Guayaquil is the only city of Guayas and the rest of the towns are considered "cantons". Is there any way that someone could list the MAJOR cantons of tourism in Guayas?
So far I have:
Are there any other major cantons missing?
I've been reading up on getting from Lima to Guayaquil, and then back to Lima.
Does anyone have an experience or suggestions on the whether or not it's worth it to take a bus instead of a plane? I know it's 24 hours on the road. But a round trip flight costing around500 is not easy on the wallet.

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?

Im coming to Guayaquil for 10 days and would like to know if there are any irish bars in the city?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
