A journey with wonderful impressions in a country of contrasts
We spent a wonderful 3 weeks in Ecuador and on the Galapagos Islands. After a detailed discussion with Mrs Zwerman, in which we expressed our ideas, the trip was put together by them and our wishes regarding the accommodation etc. were excellently implemented. After our arrival in Quito, we were welcomed by Yannik, who provided us with useful tips and was always ready to help with any questions. Our first stage took us to the Cuyabeno Lodge in the rainforest. Even the drive there was an adventure. The excursions with Tamara were very exciting. We were able to observe many of the tropical birds, caimans and several species of monkeys in their natural habitat, swim in the lagoon for sundowners in the evening and watch the dolphins. Back in Quito, we explored the city centre and set off the next day by rental car towards Cotopaxi. Luck was with us, so we were able to see both Cotopaxi and then Chimborazo under blue skies and go on the small tours we had planned. From here we went via Sangay NP with its lagoons to Guamote and then on to Cuenca with a visit to the Inca fortress Inga Pirca. We felt very much at home in the lively colonial city. The way was the goal on the journey from Cuenca past the Cajas NP (3900m above sea level) -with a hike around the Laguna Toreadora- through all vegetation zones down to Guajaquil at sea level. The interesting old town with river promenade, galleries and in the modern part with chic shopping centres and food courts. The next day we fly to San Cristobal, our first Galapagos island. Flight with Latam was good, no luggage hassle etc. Was well prepared by them! Lovely guesthouse, countless sea lions making the beaches and roads their own. On our explorations in the turtle nurseries and on the hiking trails, we observe the various Darwin’s finches, the mockingbirds and in the sky the frigatebirds circling. Snorkelling in the bay and by boat out on the Leon dormido we can spot the giant turtles, rays, even a hammerhead shark in the depths, as well as numerous corals on the rocks and a variety of fish in wonderful colours. After 3 days we continue our flight with a small propeller plane to Isabela, the largest of the islands. Here Rebecca gives us a very warm welcome, takes us to our cool beach hotel and helps us with the activities: Volcano hike, bike and snorkelling tour. Here on the sandy island, the time has stood still. Everything is a bit more leisurely. We were able to observe wonderful animals – iguanas, flamingos and turtles as well as the droll blue-footed boobies and on the boat trip the white-tipped reef sharks and a totally relaxed water turtle feeding. After 3 full days, we took the speedboat to Santa Cruz, the most modern of the islands. Here Tobias meets us and takes us to the hotel. In the afternoon we explore the Charles Darwin Station with its turtle breeding programme, where we are informed in detail by a highly motivated guide. On the last day, we take a boat trip to North Seymour, a tiny island with breeding grounds for frigate birds and blue-footed boobies. There are also land lizards next to the iguanas. It is a wonderful experience to walk the circular route and see the many young birds and mating frigatebirds. Then snorkelling at Bachas Beach on Santa Cruz – a wonderful end to the island tour. Back in Guayaquil, we stroll through the old town and are captivated by the courtship display of the land lizards that live here in the city park. At short notice, the Nieśderlands changed their entry regulations, so that we had to take a quick test on the last morning – which Yannik organised for us at the hotel.
We are very happy that we decided to do this trip and that we did it despite the Corona situation.
Of course, the long flight with mask is a challenge, but since we also wear masks for 8-9 hours a day for work, it was ok. The consistency with which the Ecuadorians wear their masks is admirable. We never saw ourselves in any form of danger from corona or anything else and were able to enjoy the trip in a relaxed way. There were only a few guests in the hotels and lodges beside us, and we also travelled in small groups of four for the activities.
Once again, big praise to the Galapagos Pro
