Road Trip anyone...?! Our 9 day adventure to Ecuador was highlighted by a 5 day, 4 night personalized road trip \"Adventure Life\" designed just for us. Everything we wanted to experience and explore in the timeframe and budget I had available was granted; from highlands and climbing on the earths tallest \"Active\" volcano (Cotopaxi), strolling the beach/swimming in the Pacific near Don Juan, hiking, zip lining and Tarzan Jumping in the cloud forest at Mindo to visiting sacred ceremonial sites of the Yumbo (pre-Inca) civilization at Tulipe. Daniel was our capable, knowledgeable and expert driver /guide; sharing countless interesting facts about the country, culture and history along the way. Not to mention helping con mi espanol! Being able to see so much of the country and experience the way the locals live has created memories to last a life time. You should go! Explore all the lush landscape and historical aspects of Ecuador. Muchas mas to do in Ecuador than we had time for; perhaps I will make it back. Until then please join me and vicariously re-live the adventure...

It was a great Ecuadorian rainforest kayaking adventure trip! And we learned: that a large black garbage bag makes a great raincoat in a pinch.That you keep your toes away from streaming ants.To bring extra clothing in small dry bags so that you can go to dinner in something other than your pajamas. . .That you are ALONE when you are alone in the rainforest. And you thought you were happy on a cruise!

We experience the varied local cultures of Ecuador, starting with a 5 night homestay with a family of Kichwa farmers in the highlands of Morochos. Then we spend three nights camping with the jungle-dwelling Kichwa Waira Churi family. During a three day paddle down the Shiripuno River, we learn about the Huaorani culture of the Amazon basin. We explore the jungle for two days at the Shiripuno Lodge with our Huaorani guide before heading back to Quito and continuing home.

Its exciting, to say the least, to fly out of Quito, Ecuador, since the city sits in a bowl high in the Andes, surrounded by mountain peaks, with the airport nestled right next to downtown. Soon we were up and over, on our way to a short stop in Guayaquil, and then on to Baltra, our first island in the Galapagos.
