This was a lovely quaint lodging outside Patate, Ecuador. The new rooms are large with incredible views of the Tungurahua volcano. The open grounds were well manicured and the flowers were beautiful. We even had a beautiful Ecuadorean hummingbird grace us with its presence at breakfast. The main Hacienda is very warm and comfortable. The living room makes you feel right at home. The wine choices were great. Wi-fi is available at the main house. The food for dinner and breakfast was delicious.

We all slept very well during our second night in the Amazon..that is until around 5:30am. We were all roused from our sleep when we heard the steadily growing sound of what sounded like an earthquake.

After a very relaxing afternoon, we enjoyed dinner with friends. Organized our suitcases, closed our account at the resort and hit the bed. About 4am we experienced a Amazon rainforest deluge. It rained very hard and very long. The windows in our room has only screens - no glass - but the roof has such a large overhang that you don't need to worry …

I found it hard to lean back and trust that the harness would hold me, but it was actually good fun once I relaxed. The next one was about the same size and we started to abseil, but then half way down we grabbed hold of our safety rope and zip-lined the rest of the way down. For the third waterfall which was about 30 metres, I had to ...
... gauged what it would be like, but unfortunately we weren't given that luxury. I had to go first and was bricking it. I’ll put my hand up to do most of these things but I still find them terrifying. As I stood on the top of the ledge and looked down I was thinking ‘Why am I doing this’. I got down for a minute to regroup and then on my second attempt I jumped. Well it was kind of a half jump and a half push ...
... on a different mountain - a 3-4 hour round trip!!! Given that it was humid, hot and really really steep I'm pretty sure Helen hated me! Oh well. After reaching the bottom, after 800ish stairs down we headed for the thermal baths. We opted for the ones in town where there was a muy muy caliente bath (about 45 degrees), a media caliente (38 ish degrees) and a bloody frio and I mean freezing! It was compulsory to wear swimming hats so after enquiring as to whether we could ...
