    • hiring a climbing guide for Cayambe Climb

      Cayambe Oct 7, 2015 at 11:10 AM

      What is the best option for hiring a climbing guide for climbing Cayambe? I found some websites that have 2-day trips for about ~$280 per person, but I was wondering if there are cheaper local guides once you get there. My considerations are: guide speaks English (even a little bit is ok), equipment rental, and cost.

      Any other advice for solo traveler on this topic would be great

    • Ecuador in May?

      Quito Sep 21, 2015 at 12:25 PM

      I am planning a trip to Ecuador for May 2016. As of now, we (active retired couple) plan Quito, 5 day Amazon tour, travel south to Cuenca, fly back to Quito. Is May before the tourist season? I am looking for options for travel between Quito and Cuenta. The Tren Crucero tours are not within our budget. Are there other rail options or are car rentals and driving a possibility?

    • advice for researching travel/accomodation to Ecuador

      Quito Sep 20, 2015 at 1:05 PM

      We are just starting research into planning a 3 wk trip to Ecuador (either Quito, Cuena or both- not sure yet) I'd like a modestly priced apartment, so any advice on the best website to search apartments or suites would be appreciated. Also we'll be flying from either Vancouver, BC or Seattle, WA - any tips on booking flights? Dates we are looking at are late December for 3 weeks. I am not even sure of the weather there at that time ;) Any referral for starting this research would be great!

      Thanks, Lisa

    • Flying to Tena

      by NSTrailRunner Online Now Feb 9, 2014 at 7:27 AM

      I had researched options to travel to Tena and didn't find any info about flying, including asking an agent in Quito, but I just saw flights available on the Tame Airlines booking website. Quito to Tena (Jumandy Airport). Can you tell me where the airport is that they land at? It looks like it is near Misahualli, but not sure? Also, should I trust booking on the Tame website, as it now takes credit card payment by foreign credit cards? Gracias
