5. Too many happy people dancing during Mama Negra, a mix of African, Indigenous and Spanish culture. Who would like to meet the “ashanguero”, provider of food, hens and drinks for free? Are you kidding me?
10. Baños sounds so dangerous… Bungee jumping, visiting the Devil’s Cauldron, sleeping right next to the Tungurahua volcano (active since 1999!!). I can’t be bothered… Not even with the promise of the best parties and relaxing hot springs!
16. Drinking fresh juice or a cold beer in the covachas in front of the sea, enjoying countless sunsets and sunrises, forgetting the rest of the world exists as you fall in love travelling along the Ruta del Sol…Small pleasures are overrated.
