I'm planning on going to Ecuador for Memorial Day Weekend. We have family friends all over Ecuador and Peru but what would be the best place to go in mainland Ecuador for a weekend? I think Quito is higher on my list than Guayaquil but I could be convinced otherwise. Thoughts? I love stuff off-off-off the beaten path and language should not be a problem (although my Aymara and Quechua is rusty ) so I'm open to anything.

I would inquire with Metropolitan Tours in Ecuador or Delgado Travel in NYC (w/ offices in Ecuador) on travel to the Galapagos. I've done Quito, Guayaquil and Manta. I would say Quito was the best, though Guayaquil is a great city, as well, and much warmer.
