I loved every moment except the Amazon. We are from Arizona and used to very dry weather. We were not told that the hotel was not allowed to have air conditioning. Even eating was outside. We were warned about Mosquitos but were not it at all. Hacienda Zuleta ,I think that is how you spell it, was the most beautiful place I have ever been in my life.
We rode horses to the Condor refugee camp and goes down in History as the most of a day I have ever had!!!
I would have scheduled another place to stay again, somewhere else in Quito. Maybe the other part of town. Just to be able to see another area.

Hi Maggy,

thanks for your message and your comments on your trip! It was a pleasure to have you and Luke as one of our first guests after the pandemic!
I'm sorry about the issue with the A/C in the rainforest, that's something we should have reviewed beforehand. Happy to hear that you enjoyed Zuleta, it's a truly magical area!

For your next trip to Ecuador (there are other beautiful places to be explored, for example the Galapagos), we could pick a hotel in a different area of Quito, for example in the New Town.

See you again soon in Ecuador,

Always safe travels,
