Cotopaxi, Ecuador

Cotopaxi

We hiked Cotopaxi and para glided down the volcano. It was a great view from above. We enjoyed seeing all the different types of animals and plants from a bird eye view. Its amazing to see what life look like in a different perspective. When our day was over, we checked into the lodge at the bottom of the volcano to enjoy some peace and quiet.

Galapagos Islands, Galapagos, Ecuador

Galapagos

We enjoyed a lovely Ecuadorian breakfast at the lodge. Then we went to the Galapagos Islands where we rented a boat and drove out into the ocean and went snorkeling. We all have many memories that we will never forget. After we were done boating, we went and walked on the beach to build a sand castle.

Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador

Quito Canton, Pichincha

We spent the day in the unique city of Quito. There are a lot of colonial buildings and the weather was warm. One place that we visited was the La Companis de Jesus.We were very impressed to see the detail that was put into the building. It was beyond imaginable. The Sun was one of our favorite parts of the building after hearing the history. Seeing the detail that these people put into this building when they built it was truly outstanding. Never would we be able to see such great work in America. Its all in such fine condition. Truly unforgettable.

Quito, Ecuador

We went to the Museo de la Ciudad. Here we learned about the history of Quito, from the per-Columbia era up to today. There were a number of artifacts and maps to help display an image in our minds of what it was like. We also went to El Panecillo. On top of El Panecillo is the virgin statue.

Our Trip

Our trip to Ecuador was an amazing trip. We enjoyed learning about the country as well as having our own fun in the spare time. There were alot of memories that we made there, and i hope that you all will one day be able to see Ecuador and see how beautiful it is there and learn about their culture as we did. It was the vacation of everyones dreams.
