    Hello! I have lived in Ecuador (Guayaquil) and traveled to Ecuador several times. I'm fond of the cloud-forest region as well as the volcanoes. For this (Spring 2015) trip, I am interested in birding, hiking, horse-back riding. Are these activities available at/near this hotel? In addition, what, is the airport-transportation surcharge? Thank you for any information you can provide!
