Country: Ecuador

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "It was an incredible honeymoon. This was Wendy's first venture outside Europe and it didn't disapoint. Ecuador is a fantastic country to visit. Such a diverse range of people, landscapes, flora and fauna in such a small country. "
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "All our guides were very helpful and knowledgable. They were flexible if we wanted to change anything slightly and always happy to answer any questions. "
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Yachana lodge was very impressive with all the work they have done in preserving the rainforest and setting up the school. "


Bellavista Cloud Forest Lodge
This was my personal favorite in terms of wildlife. It was such a magical experience to see so many birds so close. It just had a lovely feel to the place. very relaxed friendly atmosphere. Our guide 'George' was exellent.
Hacienda Hato Verde
By far the most luxurious place we stayed at. Wendy loved it here! The familly made us feel very welcome and not like staying in a hotel at all. Being a working farm it was a bit of an early start hearing the cows moving from the field, but that was part of the charm of the place. The food was of a very high standard but so was the price unfortunatley! I would have preffered if we had been told that there is nowhere else to eat here in the evening and if this was included in the price of staying here. I did feel that this was a bit cheeky. But that said it was an amazing place to stay if you dont want to feel like another faceless customer in a big hotel.
Yachana Lodge
Wendys favorite part of our honeymoon! I reccomend the nightwalk if you have nerves of steel and dont have a problem with spiders. I dont know where to start all of it was amazing. The guide was very good. It was very interesting seeing the work they are doing.
