Our amazing tour guide for the week, Daniel Sanchez, escorted us on our final tour around Santa Cruz. We stopped in the Cloud Forest for a beautiful vista and photo shoot before heading to the airport.
Our flight to Guayaquil was packed and we had a real third-world experience with humans, up close and personal.
Back in the lap of luxury at the Oro Verde hotel, 10 remaining travelers met for martinis and dinner in the lobby. A quiet, still and comfy king size bed was a real treat!
