First time and solo in Ecuador at the end of October

Hello everyone,
Off to a wedding in Quito and then would love to do a cloud forest sort of thing. I am absolutely no good at hiking, biking, being outside, so need some sort of gentle push. Any ideas...

We stayed at the lodge at Bellavista in May and would recommend it. It's about 2 hours west of Quito. They offer guided hikes and horseback riding, but you don't have to do anything active if you don't feel like it. You can simply enjoy the views from your balcony or one of the hammocks or watch the hummingbirds from the many feeders throughout the property. They have packages that include pick up/drop off in Quito, lodging, and meals. It's a very soft, pampered forest experience. Do a search here under Bellavista and you'll find some previous threads.
