Quito is the capital of Ecuador, and it's a massive city with roughly two and a half million people. It has a large international airport, and more than likely this is where you'll enter the country. So is it worth it to spend a few days in Quito before heading out to explore the rest of the country? Yes! Aside from being a major hub of activity, this large city is packed with beautiful parks and other attractions. It's historical district was the first (along with Kraków, Poland) to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site (1978). There are tons of really outstanding monuments, buildings and sculptures that display rich culture and history.

When most people from North America think of South America, they think of hot, balmy weather. And, for the most part, this is true! South America is home to the Amazon, some genuinely amazing beaches, and even some hot, arid savannas. But what can you expect in Machu Picchu, Peru? It's located in the Andean mountain range, where the weather is notoriously brisk! Actually, Machu Picchu is located in an area where weather can be hard to predict - at around 8,000 feet above sea level, it's between the steamy Amazon and the chilly city of Cusco. Some say that within a single day, you can get all four seasons - complete with cold rain, warm sunshine, chilly wind, and even snow!

Let’s face it – cruises are awesome. Even if they’re just a few days, they’re memorable for years, and well worth all the desktop background pictures at work! When it comes to choosing an actual cruise, though, there are tons of destinations to choose from. Does it matter where you go? Yes. Different cruise destinations offer totally different experiences. You could hardly find more of a contrast between the eco-friendly Galapagos and the glamorous Caribbean.

When some people think of the equator, they think of the Amazon Rainforest, with spiders the size of your hand and mosquitoes more vicious than an African lion. It's a reasonable question to ask.

Of course, bugs come and go with the seasons, so read on for some pro tips to avoid itchiness in an environmentally friendly way!

Believe me when I say we have all been there…. you’re planning a vacation to the Galapagos Islands well in advance. Like a year in advance. Maybe you’re an organized person. I mean like obsessive-Swiss-watchmaker-from-1863 organized. You know, next-level. Or maybe it’s just been your dream to visit the islands since forever, and now that you’ve been gainfully employed for a while and have been able to put a little money aside you’re finally gonna go for it.

When the Cuyabeno Reserve was initially proposed as a traveling option, it brought up a long lingering question, why do people find the jungle so appealing? It just did not sound like all that much fun. Humidity, strange animal cries in the middle of the night, mosquitoes, and poisonous snakes ? Nope. Nope. Nope. Also, nothing positive ever happened to Indiana Jones in the jungle, and even Mowgli bailed! And he was raised by a Bear!

So...galapagos travel for puerto ayora, it should be pretty straight forward right? board my plane, reach baltra airport, all that's left is reach the nearest town called Puerto Ayora. Baltra is usually the first place most visitors set foot when arriving to the archipelago, unless you are due to board a Galapagos cruise as soon as you get off the plane. It is up to you to get yourself to the nearest town and let the fun begin. Alright, so where do i take a cab? better yet, let me get an uber Sorry folks, no uber here, what about a cab? that wont work either… at least not directly. So how do you exactly reach the nearest town? (Puerto Ayora).
