A request for adventure...

My family decided to visit Ecuador for a winter family trip over Christmas to New Year's. We're so happy we had assistance from Anywhere.com to sort out all of the logistics and help us plan a well-rounded trip that we could enjoy at our own pace. We’re an adventurous family and were really looking forward to meeting locals and experiencing Ecuador's culture.

The highlights of the Galapagos Islands...

We started at the Galapagos and stayed on San Cristobal for the duration of the time there. It's a great base to hop on to Espanola Island for a day trip. My son really enjoyed the boat ride on the Leon Dormido Island tour. We saw so many sea lions swimming out in the water!

Anywhere saves the day with our last-minute plans...

Our last leg of the trip was in Baños. Cesar was such a gracious host and even invited us to join his family to celebrate Año Viejo. Planning a trip for this time of the year can be stressful, especially since we decided on this trip at the last minute, but I’m glad Anywhere was able to sort us out with an affordable and worthwhile trip to this beautiful country!
