Driving times from a few destinations in Ecuador + fly opts

Hello! I'm traveling in Ecuador in a group of 4 and have some questions about travel times via private car/taxi.

How long does it take to drive the following:

Banos to Montanitas

Banos to Cuneca

Guayquil to Montanitas

Quito to Banos

Also, we have some flight questions. We'd love to get to either Montanitas or Canoa the most efficient way possible. Does anyone know the following:

Does Puyo have flights to Manta?

Does the airport by Latacunga?

Would anyone recommend that the best way to get to Montanitas from Banos would be to go back to Quito and fly to Manta?

Thanks so much!!!!

Check out ecuadorschedules.com

not completely correct but they give you schedules and travel times.

How long does it take to drive the following:

Banos to Montanitas

- last time I was in Banos I saw some advertisements for direct buses to montanita but not sure how long it would take. My guess is about 9 hours since its about 6 to Guayaquil and another 3 to montanita.

Banos to Cuneca

- not sure

Guayquil to Montanitas

- 3 to 3.5 hours

Quito to Banos

-3 hours

Also, we have some flight questions. We'd love to get to either Montanitas or Canoa the most efficient way possible. Does anyone know the following:

Does Puyo have flights to Manta?

- I don´t think so

Does the airport by Latacunga?

Would anyone recommend that the best way to get to Montanitas from Banos would be to go back to Quito and fly to Manta?

- it would take 3 hours to quito, another 1 - 1.5 hours to airport, 40 minute flight to manta, then travel by land to montanita. I don´t think so.
