Had to use some airline vouchers.
Ecuador is only 4 hours away from MIA - it looked good since the Galapagos are always a possibility if I find a good last minute deal.

As I do more research, I am concerned with the security situation.
In the last few years, I have traveled to Peru and Chile and never felt unsafe.
I speak the lingo.
Ecuador may be a different situation.

Besides Quito and Cuenca, I also plan to visit Otavalo, Cotopaxi National Park, and Cajas National Park.

I am more of a landscape photographer and normally travel with medium format on a tripod.
May end up taking a digital for the Galapagos.
Will be traveling with my wife.

I don't expect issues outside the cities.
I would like to shoot in the historic centers of Quito and Cuenca.

Looking for recent experiences traveling to Quito and Cuenca.
