The trip was truly brilliant. We were unbelievably lucky with the weather - when we needed good weather (e.g. when hiking up to three towers, andean crossing) we had it!
The EcoCamp exceeded all our expectations (I am assuming you have been there so I don't need to tell you about it!). Our guide was just great - very experienced, knowledgeable and fun. We had a full group of 12 and enjoyed everyone's company. We would both say that the trekking portion was truly awesome and very special - the highlight of our trip - not that the rest of it wasn't great.
Everything was as it was supposed to be - we were met/picked up according to the schedule.
The hotels were also great - we loved all the locations and the hotels themselves. At the last hotel in Buenos Aires (Legado Mitico) they were unbelievably fun and helpful. They let us stay in our room until 4pm among other things.

The hotels were a level below what we might have chosen for ourselves but we could never haver reached such locations or enjoyed ourselves so much if not for the group experience.

However, the three main islands, Santa Cruz, San Cristobal and Isabela, offer a wide range of restaurants. They suit almost every budget and cater for most dietary requirements, from vegan to vegetarian, gluten-free and more. What you will find is Ecuadorian and international cuisine featuring a lot of fish, rice, vegetables …
