Our local A.L. guide picked us up at the Hotel and drove us to the beautiful modern Guayaquil airport. There we boarded the plane and met our guide, Fabrico, on the plane. Once we landed we drove to our hotel which was probably the nicest one we stayed at with a great staff and had the whole place to ourselves. Then we took a hike to Frigate Hill, the highest point on the Island with great views and lots of stairs to climb. We walked back as the sun was setting and then had a great dinner at the Hotel where we got to know our fellow travelers as well as reviewed the next few days agendas.
