Ecuador is pure adventure. We've traveled to the enchanting Galapagos Islands, hiked mountains and volcanoes, explored colonial cities, partied on the beach, ventured through the jungle to visit an indigenous Tribe, and even worked remotely from an organic farm. Our times in Ecuador have been unforgettable. That's why we are coming back for the sixth time and making it our home for 1 month.

Experience Ecuador with the Tribe
Take on Quito with the Tribe and make it your new home base for one month. Open your mind to the cocreated community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.
The Gateway to the Northern Amazon
One of the Tribe's favorite weekend trips is Baños. It's a 3.5 hour drive from Quito and sits in between lush mountains making it possible to swing off the end of the world and zip line over gorges.
Vamos a la playa!
Ready for a little beach getaway? Then head to Montañita. The town is packed with shops and eclectic food stands and at night the Reggae music blasts while gringos and vacationing Ecuadorians pack the streets.
Explore the Galápagos Islands after the Chapter
The Galapagos Islands are one of the most magical places we ever visited with the Tribe. A weekend isn't enough time to explore the islands and meet the wildlife so organizing a side trip after the Chapter is the perfect way to spend a little more time together.
Trekking through peaceful, pristine nature
The Quilotoa Loop is a beautiful hiking area in the Central Highlands. On past Chapters, we loved the views of the Cotapaxi volcano and weaving through small Andean villages with unique markets.
Wander through Guayaquil
The best way to get to Guayaquil is to take a quick flight from Quito. Once there, stroll through colorful neighborhoods, riverfront promenades, and the Churute forest and cocoa farms.
Our Home in Quito
We're staying in Cumbayá, a hip neighborhood about a 20 min drive from central Quito. It's filled with cafes, restaurants, and coworking spaces and there's El Chaquiñán next door, an 18km green path for running and biking.
The hotel has a large backyard, an outdoor kitchen, a BBQ, and a fully furnished terrace. There's a living room and 2 large dining tables for coworking and a small gym/yoga space for workouts.
Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, outdoor facing windows, a desk, fan, and TV.
Good to Know
Days will be warm and nights could get chillier so be sure to pack layers. Our weekend trips will also bring us to different climates, from jungles, highlands, and beaches.
Altitude sickness is common in the first few days of arrival in Quito. Take it slow and stay hydrated, the body will adjust in about 3-5 days. Cumbayá is also a hilly neighborhood so it'll take some time to not feel out of breath when walking around.
Cabs are inexpensive in Quito, 20-30 minute rides typically cost around $4.
