Ecuador

I'm thinking of heading to Ecuador in early Dec for a couple of months-
anyone else having similiar thoughts? I was planning to base out of Tena for a month or two and then go to Peru to do some of the multi-day stuff.
Planning on bringing both a play and creek boat, living cheap and paddling hard.
Drop a line if you are thinking something similiar-
Enjoy

I spent two years in Ecuador before I was a paddler. Wish I could tag along. Have fun. Mike

I am planning on doing the same trip leaving late October and returning back early December. I really don't know what to expect but I am heading toward Tena.

You have to check out Baeza as well! The Oyachachi (sp?) and Quijos are great. Generally chillier and wetter than Tena I think.

Going South,
Just returned from Ecuador. Definitely check out Quijos drainage. Sick play and you can fix your Class V jones on the Papajallcta (Spell?). Then head straight for the Jondochi outside of Tena. Super classic drainage. The Upper is awesome, polished granite, Class IV-V and the bottom--from the bridge down--is creeky and turns into sweet bigwater play. Hook up with a playboat for that stretch. The waves are world class.
Also--I didn't get to check out this town called San Miguel or San-something but I wish I could have. It's not in the guide book and is supposed to have all these new runs with awesome bedrock. Ask Larry at Small World Adventures. He's the expert down there. Cool guy too. He put up a post on this site recently. He has all sorts of boats to rent and a killer cabana on the Quijos. He can give you info on that San-place and anything else you want to know.
