We begin our day with a visit of one of the most beautiful parts of Quito – The Historic Old Town, located in the center of Quito. The name itself resonates with wonder and romances! Designated by UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage Site, this city is regarded as the most beautiful and stylish one in the Andes.

Our next stop is The Panecillo (the little bread loaf), rising over the southern edge of the old town and crowned by a magnificent 30-m (98-ft) high statue of the Virgen of Quito. A long flight of steps leads to the summit. Here Quito presents itself, spread out like a blanket of pearl white miniature houses enclosed by green hills.

In the afternoon, our guide will take you to the Equator! Take your picture at the Mitad del Mundo as you stand simultaneously in both the Southern and the Northern Hemispheres. Learn about the rich culture of Ecuador with a visit to the equator museum. During our stop at Museum Intiyan, you can see for yourself the uniqueness of this midpoint. Watch the water swirl down the drain clockwise and counter-clockwise, or defy gravity by balancing an egg on the tip of a nail.

The trip was so much more than I was expecting. There were a lot of activities that I wasn’t even aware that we were going to have. It was lots of fun! I was a solo traveler, and everyone on the trip were great people to spend time with. I enjoyed all of our accommodations except one, but even with that, the place was in a good location. This was definitely 5 Stars from me!

Amazing time in the amazone at Waita! With Carlos we had a very passionate, kind and knowledgable guide who showed us so much of the beauty the rainforest had to offer. He was also a top birder, and managed to help us hear and see many bird species. The accomodation was basic and had all you needed for a little home in the jungle. The local staff was kind and welcoming, proud to accomodate you in their home. The food was really really tasty and plentyfull, all you need after a day in the jungle. Really happy with the community based approach of lodge. It differs from other lodges by being owned and ran by families in cuyabeno, so the money spend here doesn't go to quito or abroad, but support 's the Livelyhoods of local families, benefitting conservation efforts.

Everything was Great, the Lodge, our Guide Carlos, Benito and all the other guys from our Lodge. We had 5 amazing days in the jungle. We are happy that we were part of this nice and lovely project. The food was so delicious, we didn't expect that good meals in the jungle.

We chose Waita lodge because in wasn't on the lagoon with all the other lodges so felt we would have the river to ourselves. This proved correct as we saw only one other boat from another operator the whole time we were there. The Place was comfy and well organised with a good program of activities, including boat rides, jungle walks, paddleboarding and piranha fishing. We saw lots of wildlife - Birds, Monkeys, Insects and pink dolphins on very trip on the river. Our guide Diego was very good - especially with insects and he made the whole time very enjoyable. We visited Ecuador during the recent emergency situation which caused a few tweaks to our original itinerary - Ecuatraveling and Estaban communicated very well and the whole thing went very smoothly - thanks everyone
