Travel Tips, News, and Featured Pages
Information on Ecuador - (updated December 2013)
- The first time I went to Ecuador I discovered from a fellow
traveler on the plane that the official currency of Ecuador was
now the U.S. Dollar. Good information to have, since I thought
I'd have to find a place to exchange my money at midnight in
Quito. Not only could I use the dollar bills in my pocket, but
I soon discovered that... Continue
Baños de Agua Santa, Ecuador - (Information
added October 2013) - Baños de Agua Santa, usually just
called Baños, is in the Andes Mountains, at the foot of
the volcano Tungurahua, in Ecuador. A bus from Quito, eighty

ticket available. However, there were regular $199 specials to
Vegas from Traverse City, and Las Vegas to Tucson was only $161.
The savings may or may not be worth booking two flights. In that
case I would have saved only $91. But it was a difference of
over $1,000 when we went to South America using this strategy.
Plan carefully though; you probably won't get a refund if your
timing is off on your connections.
Get Checked Out - It is always a good idea to
talk to your doctor or even a Travel
Doctor before you head overseas.

Colorado, you can pan for gold or participate in a free treasure
