I wish to comment on my recent trip to Cuenca, Loja and Villcabamba in June.  Aaron Hazelton led the group. He is very professional, informative, and has a great sense of humor.  He listened to our concerns and questions. Aaron went out of his way to help us feel safe. The accommodations were lovely and had atmosphere.  The trip was exceptional.  There were great speakers on topics like immigration visas, rentals etc.  We visited places to buy or rent.  I highly recommend this trip and know you will be completely satisfied.
