Good morning: Can someone who has been to Ecuador in October let me know how the weather was & if they liked the tour please? I am considering the 10 day Classic. Any spots where there was still earthquake damage or issues?

Our Gate 1 tour to Ecuador was in October, and the weather was perfect. At altitude the days were in the low 70s, with cooler evenings. In the Amazon area it was hot - about 90 degrees high during the day. Evenings were cool enough for comfortable sleep with only the screens. No A/C at the lodge.

Actually the temps are almost constant every month in Ecuador since it is on the equator. There is almost no rain in June or July, but rain is not a problem any other month either. I don't think it rained any during our trip.

Take altitude meds for this tour. Some places you visit are over 12,000 feet.

There was no quake damage in the areas that your tour go to as far as I know.

We can highly recommend this tour.

Do you need to pack a plastic bag for your suitcase for the trip to the Amazon? I read the tip on bringing shoes for the raft trip on teh Amazon--thanks.

Meli, that is not a bad idea. The process of moving the luggage from the bus to the hotel is a wet one. The boat landings are wet on each end, and there is typically water in the bottom of the boat that transports the luggage to the hotel. Our luggage arrived at the hotel door pretty damp. Had to unpack it all to let dry. If you wrap it just be sure handlers can grab a handle to move it. Maybe wrap it at the hotel that morning before leaving for the Amazon.
