Ecuador's best kept secrets

Ecuador's best kept secrets

I’ve been privileged to visit over 100 countries, but Ecuador holds a special place in my heart. Its wildly colorful rainforests, heart-warming food, and fun-loving culture just keep luring me back. Here are my tips for staying, eating and playing.

---

Stay:
In an eco-friendly treehouse perched in the lush-yet-cool Cloud Forest, where colorful wildlife abounds. Or try the SaniLodge, deep in the Amazon.

Climb: the peaks of Cotopaxi Volcano National Park. You can also grab a photo opp by the lagoons, or fly-fish in the Pita River.

Eat: soul-satisfying almuerzo (a traditional Ecuadorian set menu) made from great quality organic food at House Warmi. You’ll fill up for just $5!

Watch: a magnificent sunset (drink in hand) from the best balcony overlooking the city of Quito. They even have live music.
