Baltra to Quito - Quito to Lima - LIMA TO CUzCO
We were up early in order grab a little breakfast, finish packing what we didn't set out at the door the night before and wait for our departure via Zodiac to Baltra Island airport. Our bags were transferred earlier in the morning but we needed to collect them and then check-in for our flight to Quito. (3 1/2hr. flight - includes a refueling stop in Guayaquil.) We were allowed to wait in the Royal Palm Vip Lounge which basically consisted of a partitioned area in the waiting lounge.
Upon arrival in Quito, we were met by a Celebrity Xpedition representative who assisted us in collecting our bags. We were all then taken to the International departure area for our flight to Lima, Peru.
Once we arrived in Lima we were met by another Celebrity Xpedition representative who helped us gather our bags again and escorted us to a bus for the trip to our hotel.
We were transferred via bus to the beautiful Country Club Hotel in Lima, Peru where dinner was waiting for us. Even though many of us thought we were too exhausted to enjoy the meal, it was delicious. Our group which was now down to about 12 people spent the evening chatting, drinking and eating. The rooms at this hotel were equally nice and I for one wouldn't hesitate to come back to this hotel at some point in the future.
It was an early morning wake-up call in order to grab a little something to eat for breakfast before going to the airport in Lima for our flight to Cuzco. It was a very organized process whereby the Celebrity representative/tour operator managed our bags and assisted our check-in for our 9:00am departure.
Michael and I travel mostly because we like learning and experiencing new things, seeing new places and learning about different cultures and food that only comes from getting out and about in the world.
