After my wife, son and I returned to mainland Ecuador after our eight day cruise to the Galapagos Islands, my wife continued home and my son and I took a bus from Guayaquil to Cuenca, a National Heritage Site. We arrived in the evening and the next day found a travel agent to help us decide what we wanted to do for a few days. Among the things we were interested in were a few days in the Amazon, exploring a local national park, and gradually making our way up to Quito for our flight home.
Just returned from a long weekend to Celebration Florida (actually a longer getaway due to the snow.) We used two Luxury Link packages back to back. The package included a Lakeview studio with Breakfast and all taxes. (Thank you O for suggesting which room!) We loved the location in downtown Celebration. This is a quaint little town with restaurants, pubs, shops, a beautiful lake, and wonderful walking paths. We had fabulous weather so we could enjoy the heated pool and dining al fresco.
Never go on a weekend. You have tourists and locals making the parks pack. Visit on a week day. The earlier in the morning the better. The parks open around 9am. Great to be there at that time. Around 11 AM the Tourists show up, time to leave and return to your hotel for a rest or swimming. It is great just to walk around the parks- people watching. If you are staying over 7 plus days look into getting and annual pass- it could be cheaper and again it will last a year for your next visit.
After browsing the short list of villa offerings on LL, we decided on Casa Tres Vidas in Puerto Vallarta. When we were able to secure award business class seats for the desired dates within 5 minutes, we knew we had made the right call.
Margaret, the person in charge of pre planning certain details of the villa stay, was prompt and very thorough in responding to every question that I had!
