Where I stayed
Hostel santa Cruz
So the journey: Montanita-Baņos...12hours, one cab journey, three buses, 3 Jackie Chan films and four very smelly people. We have the most amazing journey into the mountains. The final bit of the bus journey resulted in us having more air time than the bow sit of a surf boat! We took a casual little path past the highest mountain in Ecuador which happens to be the closest to the sun in the world. Phil was very courteous in explaining why this is, which I was slightly insulted by having worked it out quite easily myself so I wonīt do the same to you. The mountains are incredible and definitely softened the blow of the 12hour journey! Anyway I shall pass you over to Phil for an introduction to the incredible place that is Baņos.
Due to having lots to do, I didnīt fill in my entry when I was suppose to but if you look on the 25th September Iīve written a Banos summary, which Iīm sure Alex will add to with her side of the story, including the Canyoning.
