In January, we traveled to Ecuador for a few days of fun in Quito including standing on the equator and climbing Cotopaxi, the second highest summit in the country. Then we flew to the Galapagos Islands for a week of cruising, hiking, snorkeling, and exploring island to island.
Accommodations in Quito: Hotel Casa Foch (Juan Miguel Espinoza). Perfect location for walking around Plaza Foch day or night.
While in Quito, Ecuador our driver, Victor Alban, was totally accommodating taking us to the Teleferique (Quito Cable Car), Cotopaxi National Park and a local supermarket. He even provided supreme restaurant recommendations. We highly recommend his services. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
