Subject: Ecuador
Hello to All,

I have searched the archives and although I find postings on traveling to the Galapagos Islands, I don't find much about traveling in the country of Ecuador. Our Costa Rican guide and friend is willing to lead our group on a birding and cultural trip in Ecuador as he has been there several times, but I must do the research for the itinerary and decide upon the hotels, etc. From studying several Ecuador guide books it appears we will look most closely at the Andes and Amazon regions, flying in and out of Quito and certainly visiting Otavalo on Market Day. I'd greatly appreciate any advice Ziners can offer.

Thank you, Ruth Marie Colorado
