    Ecuador Freedom Andes, Amazon & Pacific 9 day tour

    I missed Moab 2016. I did the Andes, Amazon & Pacific tour instead. I cannot recommend this tour company highly enough. Trip of a lifetime in a country that exceeded all of my expectations. If you are thinking of such a tour, check them out and DO IT,

    I keep my photos on SmugMug (no spam, no signup) and if you have any interest, my photos are here:

    I liked the Latitude sign. It looked very warm down yonder! Thanks for sharing.

    Nice photos, thanks! Was that a group tour or a self guided trip? Looked like it was a real good time. Food looks good, too!

    This was their Andes, Amazon and Pacific all inclusive a tour. I rented a BMW F 700 GS and the tour company provided the full itinerary, all meals, accommodations, admission to the various attractions that we hit and even afternoon snacks. There were only two customers but they were also filming for a promo video, so Adam & Becca, a really wonderful young couple who have the production company, were along as well. Wait'll you see their videos, with a drone following us overhead and Becca filming from the back of the truck with a stabilized, gimbal head video camera trained on us as we flew through some amazing canyons & scenery. The dailies looked amazing! One of our guides followed in their support truck and took great care of us as well as keeping us entertained. The lodges & hotels were amazing, located in the cloud forest, feet from the beach, on an Amazonian tributary or the top of an Andean mountain. Ecuadorans are very friendly and anxious to show you their country. Fell in love with the place, it's people and the "freedom" they enjoy down there, especially if you ride a motorcycle. Go anywhere you want, at whatever speed you want & pass police vehicles on double yellows. No hassles. Weather depends on elevation. In the cities and towns of the Andes, always around 65. Beautiful beach towns, always 80-85. Amazonia, well it's warm & humid. And lush. Almost everywhere. Lotta expats heading down there. And I can see why. I may go back in May for 6 weeks to a 2 BR, 2 bath condo for $20/night.

    Visit Ecuador

    Just thought I'd kick this up a notch. As most know, Ecuador suffered a 7.8 earthquake on April 16 which kicked the shit out of the northern coast towns. They could use some help. They are bouncing back, though, as such countries and resourceful people do. The beautiful beach community of Canoa, which was one of the hardest hit, just had a surfing competition so, while many are struggling, they are still trying to continue their lives and their lifestyle. Don't be afraid to check it out. And the rest of the country, e.g. the Andes, Amazonia, Galapagos. was not directly affected by the quake. Take a trip. You know you want to. You won't regret it.

    Surprisingly affordable considering the degree of support and equipment provided, figured it would cost twice the listed prices. Sounds like one can show up with just the clothes on one's back and a medium loaded wallet. Thanks munchmeister.
