It was a fun day in Quito touring the equator and some churches. Great guide. Then off to the cloud forest - what a stunning resort! The best housekeeping EVER! Loved the hikes, but especially the river hike. That was very different from anything we’d ever done before. We didn’t see as much wildlife as we hoped, but still loved the place.
I wish we could have laid over somewhere other than Quito before heading to the Galapagos, but we relaxed, and got ready for part two of our adventure.
The Galapagos were amazing! Animals everywhere! The high point was the snorkel trip to Kicker Rock. We swam with turtles, sea lions, rays, sharks and a million fish. It was phenomenal.
The next day we had a land tour to see the giant tortoises, but that guide wasn’t good. He should stick to Spanish-speaking groups.
Loved the country. Loved the experience. Loved the way the trip was planned.
