Tomebamba River Walk: Paraiso Parque to El Centro

This is a beautiful walk along the Tomebamba river. From Paraiso we walked all the way to Avenida las Americas, which is about 3 miles or so. The video is only up to El Centro because my camera battery went dead.  It was a Saturday and there were a lot of bicyclists with families out and about on both sides of the river, which both sides have a walking /bicycle path. Very enjoyable walk!



  1. Thank you for the wonderful info you provide! I have learned so much from your blog and book, and continue to enjoy them thoroughly...
    I have some questions about banking - is direct deposit possible from a US entity to an Ecuadoran bank? (can you tell I am not familiar with international banking?!) If not, any suggestions for getting funds from a US bank to an Ecuadoran bank, other than wire transfers, or is that the best?
    Have you addressed your experiences with obtaining visas/residency and I missed it? I am trying to learn as much as possible from the ecperience of others, as I have to be really organized to get my large family relocated (myself, 7 children and my 72 year old retiree father)and so am trying to be ultra prepared. We are planning to make the move in May 2013, and so I am currently trying to get all of the necessary docs in order...WHEW! What a trip that is!
    Again, thank you for all of the info and interest you provide!

  3. Nice to see water flowing in the river bed. :-)
    Here in Santa Fe, NM we have many river beds and arryos that are only active in monsoon season.

  4. We had a three month drought here corresponding to the northern summers months, and the rivers, although a lot dryer, were still flowing....Thanks for commenting....
