My husband, 65 and I 62 will be traveling in Ecuador for six weeks using public transportation. We are budget travelers. We are interested in staying in the jungle but the one tour that sounded interesting to my husband is about $400 each to stay in a tent for three nights. We tent camp a lot in the pacific NW but personally would prefer another option. Any suggestions?

Peru was my 51st country and one of the most beautiful I've seen in a long time. I didn't expect to see snow covered mountains in the Sacred Valley but they were there in all their glory. It goes down as one of my favorites.
