Ecuador Sunrise Sunset


Sunrise and sunset in Ecuador can be spectacular.

Merri and I flew down to conduct our June shaman mingo tour.  We checked into our suite at Meson de las Flores.  Most flights from the US arrive late and after the two hour drive it was almost 1 am before we hit the sack.

Next morning at about 5:30, (4:30 my time- Ecuador does not do daylight savings – thank God), we rose ahead of the Cathedral bells ready to go. Ecuador’s energy does that to one.

I stepped onto the balcony. I often do my morning meditation there, feeling the crisp air… hearing the sounds of the village coming awake.

Dawn was just breaking.

spectacular way to start the day.

Ecuador has beauty in many places.  Vilcabamba is another example.

Here is sunrise at the El Atillo resort and spa.

Imagine the sun rising over this incredible valley.

El Atillo by the way has the oldest house in the village. It  was declared a historic building  and will  be open as a library and museum.

Manuel Vivanco, the developer of El Atillo and his family have asked the Instituto Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural to alos declare it an “Historic Building.”  This old original house of “Hacienda El Atillo” is 130 years old and was the center of a huge ranchero in the colonal era.   The Village of Vilcabamba was part of the ranchero which dates back to 1576.

The city begins to wake.  This shot was taken at Hotel Quito.

Cotacachi has great sunsets as well. Here is the sun setting behind Mt. Cotacachi from Meson de las Flores.

On Ecuador’s Pacific the glamor is in the sunset like this Bahia sunset and…

We hope you’ll enjoy Ecuador’s beauty with us soon.  Here is what a recent delegate shared:

Hi Merry,  We really enjoyed the Imbabura and Coastal tours in May and fell in love with Ecuador!  Mauricio and Alberto were wonderful and we met some really nice people on the trip.  You did not exaggerate the hospitality of the Ecuadorians and the Meson.  We hope to return for further exploration in the next year as time allows.
