El Panecillo, Quito. Ecuador has many excellent Spanish schools.

In summer 2016 I spent 11 days in the highlands of Ecuador visiting Quito, Otavalo, and Cuenca.

Three weeks in Colombia in June 2016 exploring Bogotá, Villa de Leyva, Salento, Manizales, Jardín, Medellín, and Cartagena. The highlight was Colombia’s lush Zona Cafetera (coffee zone) with a stay at a gorgeous hacienda with an outstanding coffee tour.
