From the lovely city of Quito to the highlands of Cuenca, our vacation to Ecuador was filled with rich cultural experiences and a superlative experience to remember.
Just like any trip, it got interesting from the start...
Ecuador is beautiful. We had a few hiccups with plane delays when we first arrived, but everything went better starting from there. For this friend's trip, Anywhere worked with us on the trip plan until we were entirely satisfied. We spent one day in Mindo exploring the "Middle of The World", and the second day on the "Avenues of the Volcanoes" train excursion. Both were lovely times.
The best places we’ve stayed at...
Our accommodations were excellent and exceeded our expectations. Samari Spa Resort in Baños is a fabulous hotel. We enjoyed the termales and plaza. We also had a lovely meal at Cafe Hood in the area. Our last few days were spent in Cuenca, and the valley tours were amazing.
A friendcation to remember.
All our transfers happened, and were on time. Our private driver, Ricardo, was friendly and lovely. We were so glad we decided to make this trip happen. Not only did we feel safe with all of the arrangements by Anywhere in a foreign destination, but all the locals and staff we met were also friendly and made sure we had a great time. It was truly an outstanding experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to visit again!
