I visited once and had a great time. Loved Otavalo, also was in Quito, Banos, and Puyo. Had a chance to do some hiking in the Amazon. Amazing. Friendly people, a would recommend it for travelers.

Not a bloody thing except people speak Spanish there and it's in South America. I'm assuming you're Ecuadorian, so tell us something fun and interesting about your country :)
Sounds awesome. I'll definitely keep you in mind. I just saw your description of your country and it sounds like a good place to go. Never thought about Ecuador before, but now I am!
I couldn't drive there from here in less than a day

I know a wee-bit as I was thinking of retiring there at one time but never been there.

Thought so. I lived in Quito for several months and traveled around the country. Trekked to Cotopaxi and ..( another I forgot the name of ..cuchabombo or some such)
I was on business.
