Only three days in Quito and would love to spend one of those in Cotachi. What's the best way to get there. I'm happy to ride a bus but where do I get it or find the schedules.
I'm part of an Earthwatch expedition and on my way to the Santa Lucia Cloud Forest Reserve. Need to hike 2 and a half hours up to the lodge so can't be carrying extra things with me. Anyone know if it's cool to leave souvenirs at the Hotel. I'll be in the old District at the Hotel San Francisco.
Also, who's got advice about altitude sickness. Does the medicine really work? Do they sell oxygen like at the skiis town out west?
