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.

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 …

Since we were riding up the volcano we were able to see all the cool volcanic rocks and how the flows change the landscape. We also came across a fresh spring and were able to drink right from it. We went straight from riding to the spa. It felt so good to get a massage right after ...
... but there were none to be found. We then located the post office as some people wanted postcards and stamps. By this point, my stomach had some sharp shooting pains. Luckily we were only a few blocks from our hotel so I headed back to lie down for awhile. Within the hour I was feeling better but decided that it was already 17:30 and likely the markets would be closing so I didn't venture out any more and just enjoyed a quiet evening ...
... succeeds in throwing everyone over the side! Still, safety aside it gave us an 'up close and personal' view of the falls.
At the next stop on the tour the means of getting across the ravine got more dicey. Here people were strapped up and laid out like superman before being sent across a zip line to the other side. There are many companies doing this, I say companies but I think any old Tom, Dick or Harry can set up a zip line, and indeed they ...
