Step by step...we inch closer

Step one was booking our airline tickets. Got that checked off the list. With travel dates in hand, step two was finding a place to stay for a month. There were many suggestions given on various blogs, forums and Facebook groups but we finally narrowed it down to a one bedroom on the first floor (garden side) at Apartmentos Otorongo.

They come highly recommended by numerous folks who have stayed there. I sent off an inquiry on the website and in less than an hour we had negotiated our room location and made our deposit. From the website:

Our apartments  are suites, and each one has its own kitchen, kitchen utensils, cable Tv, hot water, fiber optic internet, bathroom, and phone. The main room (2 beds or 1 matrimonial) has wooden floors and in the living room there is 1 sofa bed for 2 kids (sheets and blankets upon request ). We clean the suites and do the dishes daily. If wanted, we can take care of your laundry.

Our rates:
2013 65 USD per night- 300 per week-580 per month
High season June, July, August, December, January Month rate 696 USD
Next is finding a place to stay in Guayaquil the night we arrive, one with a reasonable rate and free hotel shuttle from the airport. We plan to take the Super Semeria bus to Cuenca the next day, the cost should be in the $7-$9 range (based upon what we've read). The trip takes about four hours and from what we hear, it's very scenic.
