50th Anniversary Ecuador Trip


We are very excited to be able to announce the OWA + DP 50th Anniversary trip that was postponed in February 2023 to January of 2024.

Below are some key points and information to move forward with making this awesome experience happen.
Gilda will be already in Ecuador and will be joining the group in Quito to start the trip.
The trip is organized by Amazon Learning, owned by a friend of Gilda's who has help us planned this customized trip tailored
for our group. We wanted to keep the group small to make it a more pleasurable experience for all of us, as opposed
to a regular trip that takes 30 passengers on a large tour.

1) Dates of trip: January 19th-27th, 2024
2) Each traveller must buy their own airline tickets to get to Quito on January 19th, they must arrive in the afternoon or evening time.
4) We also encourage each traveller to buy their own travel insurance.
5) Attached is the
OWA+DP 50th Anniversary Ecuador Trip Description and the updated itinerary.
6) Attached are all the
Ecuador Arrival Forms that all travelers must fill out.
7) Attached is the
OWA+DP 50th Anniversary Trip Financial Information for each traveller and it is broken down in the following way:

A deposit of $500 per person is required to reserve your spot on the trip. This deposit is due by 7/1/2023.

Early Bird Specials
If deposit of $500 is received by 6/01/23, a discount of $200 will be applied and total cost will be $2800.

If deposit of $500 is received by 6/15/23, a discount of $100 will be applied and total cost will be $2,900.

The complete trip cost (remaining balance) is due by 8/1/23.

Once the final balance is received we will be able to make all hotel reservations below is a sample of some of the potential and quality level of hotels that we will be using.

We will be including exquisite meals and will be able to taste the rich culinary variety that Ecuador has to offer.

Gallery - Casa Joaquin Boutique Hotel (
Papalllacta hot-springs
Hamadryade Lodge
Luna Volcan

The trip is set up to be on a first come first serve basis.

We want to have the minimum number of attendees confirmed, so we can all start to purchase our airline tickets ahead of time to secure the best rates possible.

I (Gilda) will be glad to answer any questions you may have or Andy Gavilanes the CEO of Amazon Learning.

I look forward to sharing my beautiful, picturesque and diverse country with you all!

Looking forward to a memorable trip!
