Ecuador w/ Toddlers

My husband & I are thinking of taking a long vacation w/ our 2 toddlers next spring/summer. We're contemplating Costa Rica or Ecuador at this point mainly because they're closer to the US so we can save a bit on airfare (we hope). In any case, just trying to get some ideas on what we could include in our trip to entertain a 2yr old & 4yr old. I know they're not to the point where they'll be picky or utterly bored, but at the same time I'd like to do some things that I know for sure they'd enjoy. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would recommend a hotel near Parque Carolina where the kids can be taken to play. It's an enormous park with grass and trees and play areas, and vendors of all sorts of goodies. The four year old may end up making friends there.

The enormous, wooded Parque Metropolitano is also very popular. There is playground equipment, even a mini zipline, and lots of places to picnic in the woods, meadows, or developed areas. A lot of families will pitch a tent and spend the day, putting the little ones in the tent for their naps.

Don't know what the older one would be interested in, but maybe a trip to the Amazon basin? If he's a trooper maybe a trip to Isla de la Plata?
