Despite the challenges posed to travel in early 2021, one stalwart (and fully vaccinated) adventurer completed a trip to Ecuador in February. In spite of booking solo and no last minute companions working out to join, Sherry Swartz had a wonderful time and was well-looked after by our partner there. So much planning went into ensuring covid safe travel, including testing before flying from and back to the US, and careful social distancing and sanitizing at the accommodations, and it resulted in a smooth and enjoyable journey. Sherry writes:
“It was fantastic and would recommend this trip to anyone who loves horseback riding. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, horses were well-mannered, food was terrific, and the places I stayed were very cozy. One of the best trips I have been on.”
Ecuador remains a great option for those looking to travel as regulations start to allow for more traveling, now a negative test is not required to enter the country if you are vaccinated, and we still have flexible booking policies if covid does interrupt your plans. Great for solo travelers or groups, with wonderful options for non-riding companions, and customized versions of the standard Hacienda to Hacienda ride are available. Always a fabulous experience, it’s especially one to consider in our new normal!
