We'll be leaving for Ecuador at the end of Aug for 9 days and we're using a guide who will drive us throughout the country including Quito, Otavalo, Banos and Cotopaxi. We will going through the jungle, riding the training, hiking part of a volcano, etc. What is the recommendation for packing? I'm thinking if I bring layers, I should be in good shape along with a rain coat, gloves, hiking boots, etc. Does anyone have any other recommendations? Also, can anyone provide a guideline for tipping a guide in this situation? Thanks.
