The FIRST, BIGGEST & BEST of ECUADOR! A Quito Adventure…

We had one day to spend in Quito Ecuador and it was memorable! We asked Xavier to show us a couple places the tourists don’t go, and we wanted to get some aerial shots with Mini before the weather derailed our plans.

The elevation and high winds led to a drone-tastrophy! And Amelia’s herbal beatdown led to a very unexpected and shocking end to our day!

UNBELIEVABLE HOMES FOR SALE IN CUMBAYA ECUADOR! (Suburb of Quito)

We’re happy to introduce you to Patty and our other trusted relocation experts in Ecuador. Just tell us what you need here!

Amelia and JP VLOG 278: We were in awe while recording this Ecuador real estate tour in Cumbaya, which is a suburb of Quito. The homes were amazing and the Aquarela condo development was simply unbelievable!

These are just three of countless homes that are available for sale and rent in the Cumbaya area. There are more affordable options that we’ll film in a future video, but this area is more expensive than other places in Ecuador.

Our last real estate tour in Cotacachi is much more affordable.

WERE WE TRICKED?! (Pululahua Volcano + Mitad del Mundo – Quito Ecuador)

We’re happy to introduce you to Xavier and our other trusted private drivers, tour guides and relocation experts in Ecuador. Just tell us what you need here!

Amelia And JP VLOG 277: Since I was a kid, I always wanted to see visual proof with my own eyes that water rotates the opposite direction in the Southern Hemisphere compared to the Northern Hemisphere. Now I have that proof, and I filmed it!

In this video, we went to the Pululahua Volcano Geobotanical Reserve located about 30 minutes north of Quito, Ecuador.

Then we went to the official Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth) Monument to see where French explorers placed the equator several hundred years ago.

Then we went to the scientific equator as measured by GPS and the rotating water test at Museo Intiñan, which is located 240 meters northwest of the internationally famous monument.

Here’s the link to our TeleferiQo Cable Car video.
