Description

Enjoy the most interesting place in the country, full of secrets, landscapes and adventures. You can learn a lot about volcanoes, hummingbirds, agaves, spritual drinks, indigenous groups with rituals like 'tzantzas' (reduced human heads), local food like 'cuy' (guinea pig), if this is to much, its included an 'empanada chilena' or 'helado de paila' (handmade ice cream). First we are going to hike for 45 min on the equator line to warm up, afterwards a museum located in the latitude zero is waiting for us we will be able to feel that gravity, altitude and magnetism are not the same there with unique demonstrations like the egg challenge or the 'coreollis effect'( water spins different in the world), after lunch we are headed to a ceremony center to learn about a preincan culture and have a ' limpia' (energy bath) accompanied by a medicinal drink called 'mishky' (agave liquour) . The most important thing is to feel why Ecuador is unique and experience what happens in this curious location in the world.
