I have the following ideas:
Quito – 2 nights
Amazon/Cuyabeno – 4 nights
Cotopaxi – 2 nights
Quilotoa – 2 nights
and from Quilotoa I would like to go to Cuenca for the rest of the days. Would you recommend taking a bus to Quito airport and then fly to Cuenca
go from Quilotoa to Latacunga, then to Banos (stay 1 night) and take the bus to Cuenca the next day? Alternatively I could also go with the bus on the same day from Quilotoa to Cuenca.
Also, do you have any experiences with the Amazon during the middle of January? Will it be already dry?
What would you advise?
