I am an avid reader of TA and my travel agent in the States doesn't know about mountain travelling in Ecuador. I need you to help me with my last minute trip.
I am taking my wife to Ecuador, as a surprise for our 10th wedding anniversary, on the first and second week of January 2011. I need a recommendation for a good yacht that goes to all the islands and take divers. Also anyone can recommend the best hotel in the most charming island, and nice restaurants around.
For my second week I want to do a mountain trek in the Ecuadorian Andes, I want to combine our trek with Indian market sites, may be one or two nice haciendas, and a good city guide in Quito to spend one entire day looking at museums, I heard Quito has the best museums in the country. My budget is generous and I am open to all kinds of suggestions.
Anyone knows about a jewelry shop in Quito? I want to get her a special ring for our anniversary.
Many thanks in advance!
