Name Peru to Southern Ecuador and Up theCoast!

Hi, In short I am an American Expat who has lived in Ecuador for a while. During my time there I have managed the South American Explorers Club in Quito, the Secret Garden Hostal in Old Town and worked various other jobs related to tourism.

I also have written and edited freelance online contributing articles about Ecuador to various travel sites and edited travel articles for a year long project undertaken by Travelocity.

My new gig is as a researcher for the next Moon Travel Guide book for Ecuador.

As I have been in Huaraz ,Peru after coming down the Rio Napo from Coca to Iquitos, I am planning my trip back and am looking for intrepid travellers to come along.

I need to start the trip from Puira and head over the inland border crossing of Macara to Loja. Then check out Vilcabamba, the other border crossing of Las Bolsas and a few other Southern towns before heading to the coast.

Once in Salinas, I am going to travel up the coast using Hop On Ecuador. Its a small bus company that has its own drivers and makes multiple stops up and down the coast daily.

I am using it as they let you get on and off the transport as many times as you can in the two week time period for their bus pass. I also want to check the company out for the guide.

A ticket for two weeks costs around $160.00. Right now I am thinking of using Montanita for a base for a few days while I do day trips to Guayaquil and the surrounding beach towns before heading up to Puerto Lopez, Mompiche and Canoa.

I am well up for travel companions and have contacts along the route which should make things a lot of fun. If you are interested, let me know through this site or my email, savvytravellerecuador@gmail.com
