A day of travel to get from Belize to Ecuador for the next part of our adventure! We arrived at the Hacienda in the Otovalo region of Ecuador – a stunning location. We met up with Caroline & James, Fran & Sean and set off horse riding to see condors – my first ever riding experience – and I loved it!
