No English but next door happy to translate, basic but large rooms, we had an early trip but the proprietor was happy to provide a 6am breakfast. Clean and central location. Good value for the price.

We spent all day there for only 15$, yes! they had an offer, 2for1.

The women basically ignored my follow on questions so i went and said bye to Phil and waked around stewing for 10 minutes at my schoolboy error.

I like to wear shorts as much as I can. Our guidebook said that Tena was at a lower "altitude" so it was warmer. So we went to the bus station and asked about buses to Tena and the guy said sure, there are lots. So the next day we went down and took the bus to Tena.

... Cristobal for a few days where we attempted to swim with the sea lions, although the bulls had other plans. Overall, the entire experience in the Galapagos was incredible. Flying back to the mainland, we visited a city named Baños. The city of 'baths' has a cool mountain town feel and is well known for its thermal pools and access to the Amazon. Surrounding the city and feeding the thermal pools, the very active Volcan Tungurahua stands 5100 high and is constantly spewing ...
