Casa Aliso was absolutely perfect for our Quito stay. As a family of three we really appreciated the spacious room and homey feel, while the attentive staff and elegant surroundings were luxurious.

One of the highlights of Quito is the view from the top of the teleférico, a cable-car that goes part of the way up Pichincha volcano. Once there, you can hike for 3 hours to the crater's peak, which is what me and two travel-buddies Aline and Sean decided to do.
Climbing from 4000 to 4600 meters is an arduous task due to the altitude and lower density of air - walking a light uphill can tire you out within minutes if you attempt it ...

I met with Rosita the owner of the Vida okVerde Spanish school at night to set up my 7 day tour of the jungle and Spanish lesson. $560 USD included all meals, guides, 20 hours of lesson and 5 activities. Make sure to have tons of cash in Ecuador. All agencies don't accept credit cards due to the commission they need to ...

The next morning we made an early start (we did not want to be late!) and took the city buses called the Trole to the New Town and the Cristobal Colon Spanish School. The Trole was very busy and we had to take two buses as we got a ...
