2. Take a Trip to El Cajas National Park

With backpacks snugly secured, hiking shoes at the ready,  El Cajas National Park is the perfect way to spend the day exploring. Let your senses come alive as you listen to the symphony of birdsong and treetops, while breathing in the crisp, clear air.

3. A Brew-tiful Beginning To The Day 

Enjoy the vibrant café scene of Cuenca, where the aroma of coffee dances in the air, and the clattering of keyboards create the tunes!! We're spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a spot to cowork from. 

4. Chocolate Tour... Say No More 

Ecuador is famous for its high-quality chocolate. If you have a sweet tooth, a chocolate tasting tour in Cuenca to learn about the chocolate-making process or even making your own treats is a delicious way to spend the day! 

5.  Visit Ingapirca Ruins

Take a day trip with fellow history loving Tribers to Ingapirca, the largest Inca archaeological site in Ecuador. Explore the ruins, including the Temple of the Sun, and learn about the Inca civilization's presence in the region.

6. Explore Cajas Viejas

Cajas Viejas, a small town near Cuenca, offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in rural Ecuadorian life. Visit local markets, interact with the community, and gain insights into traditional crafts such as weaving and pottery.

Experience the incredible Galápagos Islands! Swim with sea turtles, chill with giant tortoises, and watch blue-footed boobies strut their stuff – it's a nature lover's dream come true. Each island has its unique charm filled with real-life, David Attenborough, National Geographic documentary vibes!

"Truly every part of this experience was made better and richer because of the community. From booking amazing weekend trips I would not have gone on by myself to helping me navigate a new place, to helping me with an important work call, to being absolutely silly together - I got closer to this group of people in just 2 weeks than I thought possible." - Fellow Triber, Ecuador 2017
