Gualaceo Ecuador [04:17]
Just 28 Km. east of Cuenca and a world apart. The roads out of Cuenca are wide and modern, but very quickly narrow to a single lane and steep sides of bare rock and lush vegetation. Passing over small, fast, running rivers and streams, the air is clear and crisp, as we get closer to Gualaceo. The architecture of Cuenca is left behind, and we move into buildings that remind me of Austria and northern Italy. As we approach the city, I see that it is placed in a valley that has a single river running into it. The steep sides have buildings clinging onto the hillsides, and the valley fades away between two mountains. There were no low clouds or haze from pollution obstructing my view. I can see how the city has grown, from the main road that cuts through the heart of the old city. To one side, the river forms a natural barrier; on the other side, the sprawl is halted by the steep terrain. The hostal we stayed in was in the center by the mercado where they had general food, meat, and fruit vendors. Also, this is where you can go for your breakfast and lunch. They have delicious local food that I had not experienced in other parts of Ecuador. The hostal was nice- the room was on the third floor; it had a double bed, shower, toilet and a TV. No heating, but for $15.00 a night, what can you expect? It has been a year or more since I have needed to have a blanket to keep me warm. As we arrived in the late afternoon, we checked in and then went driving around to get a feel for the ...

Lodge in the Amazon Rainforest [03:10]
Welcome to Yacuma Lodge, a beautiful place created for those who love the Amazon Rainforest. Through these pages we want to share with you the wonders offered by the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest and invite you to enjoy an unforgettable journey. ¿How was it born? Yacuma Ecolodge is a joint ecotourism initiative of the rainforest Indigenous Kichwa Community of Chontayacu and Pamir Travels Group in Ecuador. It was founded in 1995 and since that the Ecolodge provides employment opportunities through nature-based tourism, a much-needed economic alternative to lodging. The goal at the outset of the Yacuma project was to create a viable ecotourism lodge that is wholly owned and operated by local Ecuadorian managers and staff. To accomplish this, Pamir trained villagers in a broad range of activities, including house keeping, food preparation and tours guiding. Today, 15 families receive regular direct economic benefits from employment and management of the ecolodge. They also receive indirect benefits from the sale of crafts that are made in a sustainable manner.
