Food was superb and fresh fruit juices of many flavours. As a confident swimmer I loved the snorkelling every day and swimming with Turtles, Sharks and Sea Lions. Our guide David Paez was extremely good. He explained the programme for each day and had a summary on a whiteboard for us to refer to all day. He is very knowledgeable but doesn't tell you too much. Walks were organised to avoid other groups as much as possible and at certain points we were given time to do our own thing, stand and stare, watch animal behaviour. We never felt rushed which was lovely. They were also cunningly arranged to avoid the heat of the day. Both hotels in Quito were good. We particularly liked the Garden Hotel, Puembo. Trips in Quito were good. Ours to Otovalo was flexible and we went to a leather goods village as well, which was wonderful. The restaurant on this trip was lovely and very characterful.
