Is always good to better hire a car+driver trough a serious Tour Company that provides you with inssurance while driving in Ecuador.

Quickest road is Manta-El Carmen-Sto Domingo-Aloag-Banios. It takes roughly 8 hours non stop.

Saludos cordiales,

is there a bus that goes from Manta to Banos? Travelling Oct 2012.

Thought of renting a car, but seems everyone says very nerve-racking drive and car rental companies not so honest. Saw Rte 40 on the map, thought a bus might travel there too? Manta to Quevedo to Latacunga to Ambata to Banos. Seems a high tourist area, but do I get there without going through Quito or Quayaquil? HIre a driver? Where do I get a reputable one?
