ECUADOR | Sat, 26 Jan 2013 | By christelpeters | Views [918]

I have spent the last week in a new and totally different environment from Montanita.  Banos is like an island.  Standing in the middle of town you can turn 360 degrees and see only mountains on all sides.  Lush green surrounds the town ... Read more >

Baños, a spa to remember and the last stop before home!

ECUADOR | Tue, 7 Jun 2011 | By moomazza | Views [4054]

Return to Middle Earth

ECUADOR | Sun, 5 Sep 2010 | By ryanandjo | Views [3110] | Comments [1]
