Ecuador really is a beautiful country! We spent the first half of the trip at a jungle lodge outside of Tena, the “cinnamon capital” of Ecuador. The Hakuna Matata Lodge served as the jumping off point for several adventures, including a day of rafting down the Rio Napo (a major tributary of the Amazon). The Haripotepornkuls, who are new to this sort of thing, found themselves underwater on more than one occasion.

Next, we flew to the coast and stayed in a beach house in the town of Olon, which is just north of Montanita. The surf wasn’t all that great, but we ate some excellent seafood and had a fun time in the warm water.
