Chorro de Giron, Ecuador. In Ecuador, different hiking trails are marked with smiley faces for difficulty level. The one we would soon take was marked with a frown. I could not agree more. It was one of the most difficult things I’d ever done. The views and waterfall at the top were certainly worth it, though.
After two days at a stranger’s home on a beautiful property by the beach, my roommate and I started our 24 hour journey back to San Jose, Costa Rica from Piña, Colon, Panamá.
