      Visiting Ecuador

      Ecuador Apr 5, 2015 at 9:30 AM

      I am thinking of visiting Ecuador around October/November of this year. I am hoping to take 3 weeks in total and would like to visit Quito, Banos, Cuenca and some other places. I don't think I will go to the Galapagos as much as I would love to because of the high costs involved in going. Is this time frame enough to visit Ecuador. Would I be able to perhaps also take in Columbia or Peru or is it better just to stick with Ecuador. I look forward to hearing what you have to say. Thanks.

      Are there any recommended tour operators in Puerto Villamil with whom I could get in contact by e-mail to get an idea of what kinds of half-day tours and cruises are available from Puerto Villamil and perhaps book them in advance?

    • ‎!!! Missing: Jonathan Simon !!!

      ‎!!! Missing: Jonathan Simon !!!

      His name is Jonathan Simon, DoB: 9/11/1989, Munich.

      He went missing on Sat 8/6/2011 in Ecuador close to a little village called Pailon del Diablo, nearest town there is called Banos, on a biking path called Routa des Cascades.

      He was last seen at around 7pm local time by the friend he was travelling with. The boys decided to take different routes and meet up again at the other side of a waterfall which should have taken them each about 10-15 minutes.

      Jonathan never showed up and went missing ever since.

      Local police had been informed and did start a search for him, but apparently stopped their efforts after about 10 hours with no results or clues.

      Time is of the essence as a search and rescue team should be formed privately or by the authorities, but the longer we wait or waste time to organize this, the more likely it becomes that Jonatahan will no longer be around that area as it is apparently close to the Pan American highway or help might not come just in time for him.

      So any strings anyone can pull over there: go for it!

      You can find a picture of Jonathan on the profile of this group (or alternatively I posted his photo as my profile picture as well – as everyone who cares to have Jonathan found should do btw)

      Thank you for your help!

    • volcano smoke ?

      Baños Jul 25, 2007 at 2:04 PM

      i am thinking of spending some time in banos, or possibly patate - so i would like to know if there is smoke there - from the volcano. and if so, how much and how often? have people complained of it hurting their eyes, or causing a chronic cough?

      when i lived on the big island of hawaii, i got very sick from the volcano smoke on the kona side. it looked like the smog in los angeles, and everyone called it vog.

      thank you - i appreciate your help.
