    Cuicocha Lake

    5
    4 reviews

    A crater lake with two islands. You can hike all around the crater (5+ hours, trained hikers) or take a boat ride on the lake (1h, nice with kids). For the best view have lunch (we recommend trout) at the little place up the hill, not at the main restaurant.

    Plaza foch is the heart of the marsical district and serves as the perfect meeting up spot for tourist and locals embarking on a night on the town.

    Guayas River

    4.5
    4 reviews

    Whereas the capital Quito is defined as a mountain city, Guayaquil is the quintessential port metropolis and the Rio Guayas is its lifeblood. Interesting trivia tidbit: the Guayas is the only major river in South America that flows into the Pacific Ocean, and not the Atlantic.

    Avenida Amazonas

    4
    5 reviews

    Popularized as Quito's main tourist street, the street is actually a bit crusty, crowded and the tourist venues along it lack the quality of even very nearby spots. On the southern end of Amazonas, head off to the east (towards the Amazon) and you'll find Quito's Mariscal district. This is where, as as traveler set on dining or shopping, you ...

    Devil's Crown

    5
    2 reviews

    One of the best (and most memorable) snorkeling spots in the Galapagos. Some of the best areas to explore are actually in the center of the crown, where you're protected and surrounded by jagged lava rock on every side. Lazy blacktip sharks and tropical fish abound. Try to swim through the tunnel between the inner and outer crown!

    Mercado Artesanal

    3.5
    3 reviews

    I didn't like this place at all. I expected one if those charming artisanal markets (it's the name, isn't?) you see in Peru or Bolivia, what I got was Chinatown, LA! What you see in my postcard is pretty much all there is to it - rows after rows of cheap souvenir shops. Yikes!

    Pinnacle Rock

    5
    2 reviews

    Probably the most iconic landmark in the Galapagos Islands. This place is fantastically beautiful and even more fantastically interesting. There is a bizarre history of military occupation around the pinnacle and best of all, the penguins live here!

    Shell Mera

    If you want to get into the Amazon from the Ecuadoran side, your best bet is by small plane. Seat belts aren't common on the old and well-worn crafts, but you'll have enough gear/livestock layered on your lap that you won't have to worry about bouncing around. And the views out the windows will be so awe-inspiring you'll almost forget ...

    During the 1999-2000 eruptions, I had the opportunity to travel down to the "Ojo del Volcan" (eye of the volcano) and camp, directly in the line of sight of the awe-inspiring explosions. It was simply spectacular, with regular activity, constant smoke and impressive tossing of house-sized boulders all over the face of the mountain. This volcano erupts with regular frequency ...
