The only airline that officially will fly a kayak to Ecuador is LanEcuador. Continental, Delta and American all have a no kayak policy which sucks. We (Small World) have especially had trouble flying boats on these airlines from Denver since they seem hip to what they are no matter how you desguise them. By the way, we have a new edition of the "Kayakers Guide to Ecuador" coming out by the end of September, lots of new runs and beta on hotels and such. If you do strike out on getting a boat down there, contact us at email@example.com
and we can hook you up with a rental. See you down there.
