Ecuador - non-Galapagos itinerary suggestions?

Jump to last reply

I was on the Panama board reviewing travel options and a couple of postings recommended Ecuador so I jumped over here. I was looking for a new option to Costa Rica where we've been 3 times - though different regions each time. We like active travel - hiking, snorkeling, white water rafting, etc. We also like small lodges and good local food. We have both driven in countries and hired local travel agents to handle all local travel when we are doing a planes, trains and automobiles trip - which it looks like this one might be. We can fly into either GYE or UIO. We are looking at a 8-10 day trip. I was thinking about trying to figure out a 2 or 3 city/area itinerary. I tossed out Galapagos because we aren't cruise people and it seemed from reading the first 50 posts that most people like the cruise and no one flew to GPS. Suggestions from the experts on this board?

Thanks!
