Ouch....we miss Ecuador. While once again we didn't have quite the amount of Couchsurfing/Workaways come through that we had hoped for, it was the cost of transportation that sent our budget sky-high. Long distances and bus fares that cost between $28-120 were the bane of our existence, but we considered our $120/person splurge to Machu Picchu totally worth it. Guide book listed daily cost somewhere between $20-30 person, so we're definitely over, but at least our lack of spending in Ecuador will help even everything out!
