​ (-) 

Day 2: Quito

Breakfast at the hotel. City tour of Quito with a visit to the Equator line. Duration of the excursion day including transfers - 8 hours. During the city tour of Quito, you will see captivating panoramas, churches, domes, and roofs that are historical relics. You will learn about colonial art, architecture, culture, legends, and traditions.Quito, the capital of Ecuador, was founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city and is located at an altitude of 2800 meters. Despite the earthquake in 1917, the city has the best-preserved and least altered historic center in Latin America. The architecture and rich interiors are examples of the Quito School of Art, which represents a blend of Spanish, Italian, Moorish, Flemish, and indigenous art. Artists of this school worked with stone and wood to give shape to the most important religious events. After a one-and-a-half-hour walking tour exploring the Old Town, you will understand why Quito was the first city in the world to be included in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage list. Quito got its name from the Kitu tribe that inhabited the region long before the Spanish conquest. In 1533, Sebastian de Benalcazar seized the city, which was initially the capital of the Inca Empire, and in 1541, it was declared a Spanish city. Its full name is San Francisco de Quito. The city served as the capital of the Quito state until the end of Spanish colonial rule. The Franciscan order was the first to establish itself in Quito. The Franciscans immediately began the construction of a monastery, which became a center of education and art, featuring its own schools of painting and sculpture (the Church of San Francisco is visited during the tour). Around the main square, Plaza Grande, stand the country's key buildings: the Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, the Archbishop's Palace, and the City Hall. We will visit the best example of colonial art in the city—the Jesuit Church, whose facade is adorned with intricate carvings. Quito is the capital city with many contrasts, which you can appreciate by visiting the Old Town and the new districts. A beautiful view of the entire city awaits you from the Panecillo viewpoint with the statue of the Virgin Mary with wings, the patroness of the city. We head to the "Middle of the World" (the equator line). There are two places to visit the equator line, and we will visit both places: 1.) City of Mitad-del-Mundo. The City of Mitad-del-Mundo is a tourist and commercial center where visitors can discover a monument erected in memory of the geodetic expedition of 1736, which established the passage of the equator at this location. The "Middle of the World" tourist complex is owned by the prefecture of Pichincha province, Ecuador. It is located in the San Antonio parish of the Quito Metropolitan District, north of the center of Quito. The headquarters of the Union of South American Nations is being built on the complex grounds. Between 1979 and 1982, a 30-meter monument was erected, marking the spot where, it was believed, the equator passed. A line, symbolizing the equator, extends from the center of the monument, and over the years, countless tourists have crossed it. However, in reality, the entire structure is located 240 meters south of the actual equator, which was accurately determined in the 20th century thanks to the advent of GPS positioning systems. 2.) Intiñan Museum. In this museum, we can conduct a series of experiments explaining the impact of the equator line on natural forces. Additionally, you will receive information about the culture of ancient peoples, and we will see a series of totems from various South American cultures. Traditional dwellings of different cultures in the country, such as a house with items belonging to an indigenous family that lived in this area many generations ago, are also displayed here. Return to the hotel. Accommodation at Plaza Grande 5* Royal Suite (breakfast).

Day 3: Quito-Cotopaxi

Breakfast at the hotel. Excursion to Cotopaxi National Park. Duration of the excursion day including transfers - 8 hours. Duration of the transfer Quito-Cotopaxi - 2 hours. Cotopaxi-Baños - 2 hours. Overnight altitude - 1800m. Excursion altitude - 3800m. Average temperature - +20°C during the day, +10°C at night. We will depart from Quito on the Pan-American Highway towards the rose plantation in the Cotopaxi Valley. At the plantation, we will see roses of different colors and sizes that Ecuador exports to various parts of the world. We will observe the processes of harvesting, selection, and packaging, convincing us of the high quality of the exported product. Note: the plantation is not visited on weekends and holidays! Upon arrival at the National Park, tourists will take a short hike and visit Cotopaxi National Park. Despite strong winds and silence, Cotopaxi National Park breathes with life and abundance. The park was established in 1975 and is located in the provinces of Pichincha, Cotopaxi, and Napo, 60 km from Quito and 30 km from Latacunga, the capital of the Cotopaxi province. Its area is 33,393 hectares. Within the park are the volcanoes Ruminawi and Sincholagua and Lake Limpiopungo. During daylight hours, temperatures can reach 18-20°C, dropping to 3-4°C in the evening. The park boasts the legendary Cotopaxi volcano (5,897 meters) and numerous trails that allow approaching this giant. Records of its activity date back to 1534 when the conquistadors arrived at the site now known as Ecuador. At Lake Limpiopungo, you can observe a large number of birds, including 24 species of waterfowl, among which 15 are migratory birds, and a very rare bird species - the Andean Ibis, of which only 100 individuals exist. The most common mammal found here is the wild rabbit. Four bioregions can be distinguished within Cotopaxi National Park. We will have the opportunity to walk along the pine forest and visit Lake Limpiopungo. Free evening. Accommodation at La Cienega 4* hotel (breakfast).

Breakfast at the hotel. We will drive north from Quito, passing by the Middle of the World monument and the equator. Then we will head west. We will stop at a viewpoint overlooking the extinct Pululahua volcano. From here, we will head towards the Pacific coast. After approximately 2 hours of driving, we will arrive at the Tulipe Archaeological Museum to explore and learn about the Yumbo culture. We will see pools and structures built in this location. After an hour and a half, we will reach the entrance to the Mashpi Reserve, covering 1300 hectares—a haven for wildlife and biodiversity. We will continue our journey to the lodge, arriving around 12:00-12:30. Guests will be welcomed with a refreshing drink and then escorted to their rooms. Typically, this is followed by an introductory talk before lunch and a short time for relaxation. After lunch, activities begin. The specific activity chosen depends on factors such as group size, the physical condition of guests, and weather conditions. After dinner, we can take an evening stroll.

Accommodation at Plaza Grande 5* Royal Suite (breakfast, lunch).

Day 9: Quito-Galapagos Islands

Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer to the airport - flight to the Galapagos Islands. Upon arrival at Baltra Airport, a guide will meet you, assist with luggage, and accompany you to the bus. The journey to the Itabaca Channel, which separates Baltra Island from Santa Cruz Island, will take 10 minutes. It will take 5 minutes on motor boats to cross the canal to reach Santa Cruz island. From there, we will proceed on individual transport (approximately 45 minutes' drive) across the entire island to the town of Puerto Ayora and your hotel. Please note the change in the environment: from the red rocky surface in the north to the green world of wildlife in the highlands and the south. From the airport, the guide will accompany the group to the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. During the journey through the island's agricultural zones with the surrounding wild landscape and various types of flora and fauna, we may observe giant tortoises, which formed the basis for Darwin's theory of evolution. Witness the famous Galapagos land tortoises in their natural habitat, and learn how private farms contribute to the conservation of these unique animals and their habitats. You may hear them making sounds while nibbling on leaves or searching for tasty food. Here, you can see tortoises of different ages and sizes: young ones with sparkling shells and lazy old ones with partially cracked shells – traces of a long life. Well-known lava tunnels are another destination of our journey. Channels formed by uneven cooling of flowing lava from the volcano's slopes extend from the highlands to the shores. Lava tubes are collapsed in several places. However, there are preserved lava tunnels that can be walked through in about 30 minutes. You will see and understand how they were formed, sometimes challenging to pass and sometimes with fallen boulders. The guide will share a detailed history of the origin of these tunnels. Lunch is included. Transfer to the hotel. A welcome reception at the hotel will be followed by accommodation in our spacious rooms. Next, you will have free time to explore the port town of Puerto Ayora with numerous souvenir shops. Accommodation at Solymar 4* Ocean View Room (breakfast, lunch)

Day 10: Sea Excursion To Bartolomé Island

Early in the morning, you will depart from the hotel by bus to the Itabaca Channel, where a yacht ready for departure will await you. You will spend the day in a unique corner of the Earth with beautiful sandy beaches, otherworldly surroundings, crystal-clear waters, and some endemic species of flora and fauna. During the two-hour sail, you will have a unique opportunity to see dolphins and other sea creatures very close to the yacht. Embark to Bartolome. You will embark on a hike uphill for about 30 minutes, crossing an almost lunar landscape to reach the highest point of the volcanic island. From there, you will be treated to breathtaking views of Santiago, Seymour Norte, Baltra, Santa Cruz, Rabida, and the tiny Chinese Hat Island, as well as the famous Pinnacle Rock – remnants of an ancient collapsed volcano. This place is a habitat for some bird species. The landscape from the summit is an emblem of the Galapagos Islands, captured by many photographers. Next, a change of clothes is in order for a visit to the beach. During the boat ride, our guests will observe Galapagos penguins (only 50 centimeters tall), standing at the base of the cliff or swimming at bullet-like speed in the crystal-clear waters of the ocean. There will be time for beach relaxation or snorkeling: the shallow sea provides an opportunity for swimming and snorkeling alongside Galapagos penguins, reef sharks, sea stars, rays, sea turtles, and a variety of exotic, colorful fish. Additionally, you may spot several endemic island species: marine iguanas, sea lions, and pelicans, among others. Lunch on board follows this amazing adventure. The day will conclude with a return to the hotel in the evening. You will have a free evening to stroll around Puerto Ayora. Accommodation at Solymar 4* Ocean View Room (breakfast, lunch)

Day 11: Sea Excursion To Seymour Or Plaza Island

(confirmation after booking; both islands are equally interesting): SEYMOUR ISLAND This excursion day will offer you an amazing opportunity to visit North Seymour Island and the Bachas beaches. We will travel by bus to our yacht in the Itabaca Channel, followed by a one-hour sail to North Seymour Island. Disembarkation will take place on the rocky shore near a small forest of gray and silver Palo Santo trees, which are mostly leafless most of the year. Seymour Island Seymour Island is famous for numerous colonies of different bird species. Particularly memorable are the male frigatebirds with their red throat pouches, which they use to attract females during the mating season, and the iconic blue-footed boobies. These seabirds have wedge-shaped tails and long pointed wings. During their courtship dances, the males raise one wing and one blue foot, dancing to impress the females. The excursion will continue on the beach with small cliffs, where you can observe seagulls, numerous sea lions, marine iguanas, and pelicans. Most animals can be observed at arm's length. A freshly prepared lunch will be served on board the yacht. During the post-lunch break, the yacht will continue sailing to the Bachas beaches on the north coast of Santa Cruz Island. First, we will walk to the lagoon behind the beach, often visited by flamingos. Then, we'll enjoy refreshing swimming and snorkeling on a paradise uninhabited beach with white sand and turquoise water! Sea lions, various species of rays, sea turtles, and tropical fish might join you during this underwater adventure! Return to Puerto Ayora is expected around 16:00. Free time for a stroll along the pier, souvenir shopping, or enjoying the sunset. PLAZA ISLAND Departure from the hotel to the north, to the Itabaca Channel. Boarding the yacht and sailing to South Plaza Island. This is one of the smallest islands in the archipelago, located near the eastern tip of Santa Cruz Island. After an hour and a half of sailing, Plaza welcomes guests with a red-green carpet of Sesuvium, endemic plants spread across the island, and the friendly barks of several families of sea lions residing here. The turquoise ocean water harmonizes perfectly with the white sandy beaches and volcanic formations along the shore. The walk on the island is very easy - the trail passes by sea lions and land iguanas and reaches the highest cliff, where swallow-tailed gulls cut through the air with their cries, and lone male sea lions, unable to withstand their rivals in the harem fight, retreat defeated, climbing almost vertically. At the same time, tropical birds such as frigatebirds, blue-footed boobies, and tropicbirds gracefully glide through the air. We recommend having binoculars to see this extraordinary wildlife up close. The view from the highest point of the ocean and the powerful waves crashing against the cliffs is an unforgettable sight. Next, the journey will continue to Cape Carrion. Lunch on board. This is a unique place for snorkeling and swimming alongside rays, reef, and Galapagos sharks, and hundreds of colorful tropical fish. Return to the hotel. Free evening. Accommodation at Solymar 4* Ocean View Room (breakfast, lunch)

Day 12: Galapagos Islands Sea Excursion To Isabela Island

(by speedboat) Departure at 07:00 towards Isabela, a beautiful island with a great variety of wildlife. The journey will take approximately 2 hours. Upon arrival at the main dock of Puerto Villamil (the only small settlement on the island), we will head to the marshy lands, where you will see different species of mangroves, a network of small lagoons with volcanic formations, and exotic fauna, including flamingos, royal terns, among others. The journey will continue to the information center, where you will learn more about the work of the Galapagos National Park in preserving unique flora and fauna. After a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, we will head to Tintoreras – a small island located south of Puerto Villamil, in the center of the bay with turquoise water. Here, you can spot sea lions, sea turtles, marine iguanas, and rays. It is a famous resting place for reef sharks, which you can see after a short walk on the solidified lava. After the excursion – transfer to the hotel on Isabela Island. Accommodation at Iguana Crossing 4*, Ocean View room (breakfast, lunch)

Day 13: Galapagos Islands - Sierra Negra - Concha Perla (Isabela Island)

Early in the morning, after breakfast, we put on comfortable walking shoes, waterproof ponchos, pack cameras in plastic bags in case of rain, take a jacket, sunscreen, water, hats, and set out for the Sierra Negra volcano. We are ready to proceed for about 35 minutes by bus or minibus, depending on the number of people in the group. We will head to the Galapagos National Park checkpoint, located 22 km from Puerto Villamil, to start a 2-hour hike (round trip), covering about 3-4 km. The walk takes place along a trail with few ascents but rather a constant, not very pronounced slope, making the hike moderately challenging (there is an option to go horseback riding at an additional cost). The Sierra Negra volcano crater is the second-largest in the world, measuring 9 km in diameter and 100 meters in depth. Return to the hotel. After a short rest, we will try on snorkeling gear, which we will later use for this type of water activity, or simply relax in Concha Perla Bay. Here, we can observe colorful fish, sea urchins, sea lions, sea turtles, among other marine life. Return to the hotel. Free evening.

Dr. Mendis has enjoyed all the countries though he could not do a few tours in Peru which is understandable due to political unrest.

Hi Anna, thank you for the update on the glasses. I’ll wait and see what happens! Alan and I are now back in the UK. We loved our trip to the Pantanal and Bonito. Our guide, Alessandra was brilliant with lots of knowledge and very considerate and helpful. The only hitch we had was on our flight back to Rio because the second leg of the trip was cancelled and we were rescheduled to a later plane and our luggage was mislaid. Fortunately it arrived in Rio a day later, before we flew home. Thank you for arranging the trip.
Best wishes Carol
