I'm heading to Ecuador in February right before a guided tour that starts in Lima. I have about 16 days in Ecuador and nothing to do. I'm landing in Quito. Does anyone have suggestions?
Would you recommend the coast? Or the highlands mostly?
I'm on a budget, but not a shoestring budget (budgeted about $3000 for my time in Ecuador)
- I've looked into tours of the Galapagos and their very expensive. Is there an affordable way to check them out?
- My tour that I booked in Lima goes through the Amazon, so unless the Amazon in Ecuador and the Amazon differs greatly from Peru, I'd rather see other parts of Ecuador
- I like beaches and partying in moderation, but cities that all they have is one of both of those things is less interesting to me
