1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Tubing down the Napo River Valley! Also, enjoyed tremendously all the laughter on the ropes course, the river rafting and the hospitality and GREAT FOOD at Cotococha Lodge! Also, it was very nice to receive immediate assistance from Miriam when a taxi was delayed and also when we had a change in plans due to my sister not feeling well.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Plan to have the time of your life!!!!! be sure to view activities, lodges, etc on websites to have an idea of what to expect.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely! We enjoyed their company and thanked them with tips and positive feedback. We made sure to follow all suggestions as far as where to deposit trash, recyclables, etc. we were mindful of how to dispose of waste.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic!!!! 10 stars.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Impossible to pick! As a horse lover I loved the riding at El Porvenir and the whole experience of La Alegria, but mountain biking through the volcanoes was also amazing, as was the jungle experience.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

It's a real adventure holiday, so not for those looking to relax or sit by a beach which meant it was perfect for us. Beware of the sun - the equator is mean! Take lots of small bills in cash - even $20 bills are hard to change.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We used only local guides and suppliers, and felt this was an excellent way to explore the country. Especially at La Alegria, there was a real family feel and we felt like we were really part of their home and way of life for a few days. In the jungle, we visited and contributed to a number of local communities and projects.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Absolutely superb from start to finish. The operator was outstanding in making us an itinerary which was perfect for the amount of time we had to spend there, and we loved working with them before, during and after our holiday. We felt that the range of experiences, activities and accommodations enabled us to really experience a bug chunk of Ecuador and its culture in only two weeks.
