November 1st, 2019 pizza place

If you fancy a pizza this isn't a bad choice. 17-25k for a pizza

October 28th, 2019 Long Term Parking - Parqueadero La Amistad

This seems like a good place, I'm also leaving my bike here.

NOTE: when handing in your TIP to the DIAN, when people say "just hand it in", they mean it. I listened to one of the Cambio people and got stamped out first. YOU DO NOT NEED TO GET STAMPED OUT!!! They don't check, it takes all of 2 seconds to leave.

Clarified the description because this caused me unnecessary anxiety :)

October 25th, 2019 Copacabana

25k/n including parking for Moto. same price for the place 2 doors down. Fuck me the beds are hard too, don't lie down too quick or you might crack your head open

October 22nd, 2019 Corrupt police

They asked for money, i got a video showing the officers name and a Google translate saying "100 now or 300 later" and said i would pay at the station. after some debate they let me go

October 21st, 2019 Hotel

25k for the night, no breakfast or WiFi, or mobile signal. En suite. There's (just about) a kitchen but no more than that.

would almost certainly let you sleep in the car/camp

October 19th, 2019 Hotel Vieja Aduana

Nice little hotel. 28k for a dorm. Possible to take motos in, certainly if they're small. The owners are very friendly and have travelled by Moto before. Slightly mental and very playful dog

October 18th, 2019 Pizzeria La Candeleria

Pretty damn good pizza! Diavolo for 18k. Good value for the quality. Really good fresh pasta too, 20k+

October 17th, 2019 Parking

Parking in this city is a beach. This was the cheapest i found. 5k / 12h for a Moto.

enter through the long tunnel from calle 7.

Big rigs will probably struggle.

October 14th, 2019 Finca Las Mercedes

just to clarify - it's 20k to camp (after haggling). a room is 80k.

October 10th, 2019 La Mano del Gigante

worth a stop I'd say. the 10k gets you a voucher than can be used for a drink/brownie/whatever you fancy

October 10th, 2019 Backpackers & Travelers Hostal Neiva

Nice place. 20k for a room including showers (cold but frankly i wish it was colder, it's so hot here) and breakfast. I could park my Moto inside the hostel through the back entrance for free. It was a pretty tight fit though!!! Friendly owner.

October 9th, 2019 Casa Grande

this place is pretty damn good but i paid 32k! You do get alot of food though

October 7th, 2019 Vegan place

There's a new vegan place opened here. The service is very slow but the food is good. Lots of crystals if you're a fan of the positive vibrations and chakras and all that stuff. When Tomate inevitably runs out of food this is a good alternative.

October 5th, 2019 Isla de la Corota

Worth the 5 minute detour to go through the town, it's really lovely (at least, it is first thing in the morning when you're the only tourist). didn't go to the island, doesn't seem worth it.

October 4th, 2019 Alkosto Hiper Ahorro

You can buy insurance here, the last person is wrong. Though, when i came the computer wasn't working and the guy said it was cheaper at Exito anyway.

October 4th, 2019 SOAT - Exito Supermarket & ATMs

136k for 3 months on a 250. Easy and quick.

October 4th, 2019 Community Hostel Quito

Really good hostel, social but not too much. Friendly staff too. The food is definitely worth the money, really tasty.

I parked my bike in the garage of the buildings owner and didn't have to pay extra, but based on how often she asked when i was leaving she wasn't entirely happy about it.

October 3rd, 2019 Luz Clarita

Decent enough bed for 5 bucks. The pin isn't in quite in the right place. It's up the hill from the football pitch, there's big murals on the wall

September 26th, 2019 Native Animal Market

Probably worth a stop of you're nearby on a Thursday morning. Things were already starting to wrap up at 10 so arrive early!!!

September 26th, 2019 Gas

Diesel and eco pais. normal prices. This road is incredible

September 26th, 2019 Café En-Dulce

really good but expensive,....f jk eg yhkfdxghh

September 19th, 2019 Restaurante Wijao

Almuerzo $4. Maybe the best pollo ive had in 10 mths in s America.

September 19th, 2019 Jardín Botánico Las Orquídeas

Worth the trip from Baños. Omar Is relatively easy to understand (my Spanish isn't great and i did ok)

September 19th, 2019 Parque Real de los aves exóticas

loads of colorful chickens, lots of pigeons, some duck/other game birds. The birds are fed well but don't have much space. $2.

September 19th, 2019 Waterfalls

Nice little waterfall. Nobody there when i arrived, easy to climb up the rock round the fence. costs $2 5 mins walk from the gate.

also, you could camp in the car park in the hair pin of you had to.

September 16th, 2019 Reserva Chimbarazo

This is the start of the road refugio. Motos can park here, at the pin, but arent allowed further up because reasons. Pickups can pass apparently, so I'd guess 4x4s and maybe big rigs can pass.

September 15th, 2019 Complejo Archeologico Bańos del Inca

Closed behind a locked gate :/

September 15th, 2019 Nariz del Diablo 2

Access to this point I'm pretty sure it's from the E35 not the E47 (where Google takes you). oops.

September 11th, 2019 Pizzalacqua - beers & pizza!

Good lasagna ($4), decent pizza for the price, poor quality Bolognese, do not order it.

September 10th, 2019 La Belga

This place was empty when i went here at Monday lunch, which is a travesty. Very good lunch for 3.50
