Horseback Riding 3 days Cotopaxi National Park - Gulliver Expeditions - Ecuador best Tours [02:29]
Our three-day horseback riding tour is an impressive and memorable way to experience the famous Cotopaxi National Park. Before beginning our journey, we start with instruction in a safe enclosure with the help of an experienced guide, in order to allow riders to gain confidence with the horses. The first day is spent riding through local farms toward the magnificent Cotopaxi, where we have striking views of Corazon, Ilinizas and Ruminaui. Inside Cotopaxi Park, we make a wide circle around the volcanoes, offering us first-hand views of the flora, fauna and ecosystem at a high altitude. We have the opportunity to see wild horses, llamas, eagles, condors and wild cattle, all of which roam within the Park's boundaries. The first night, we make camp under the stars and cook on an open camp fire. The second day, we ride and visit Lake Limpiopungo in the flatlands of Cotopaxi. This experience is highly recommended for nature lovers wanting to experience the true way of life in the open Andean mountains. Camping on the second night is at the Tambopaxi Hostel, where we pitch tents in the hostel grounds and have access to their facilities. This tour covers 40km each day and is therefore recommended for riders who have some experience.

Saint's Day in Montañita [05:35]
Every year, Montañita celebrates it's Saint's Day with a festival and an insane fireworks display. Not insane because the fireworks are anything special, but because, as you can see in the video, they are low down in a crowd of people in a village full of thatch roof houses. At about 43 seconds in you can see the sparks from a rocket whoosing by the top left corner of the camera. It hits the roof behind me, sending sparks down on the little girl that sitting on her dad's shoulder's, and sets her hair on fire. After the comosion dies down, and I turn my camera back on, she and her dad are smiling and laughing like nothing happened! That's why I love this country, no one is suing anyone, everyone's happy, and only a couple houses needed a little rethatching the next day. Only in Ecuador! :) Part one: The Firey Lady Part two: The Crazy Cow Part three: the finale, ending with the condor ceneterpiece coming alive!
