In Vilcabamba you can do as much or as little as you like, it is all up to you ! Find a hammock somewhere and watch life go by or go crazy doing millions of things
Biking is an excellent way to get around here. Remember there is no car rental here,
so if you want independence in being able to get around, a bike is a good option.
Well, it's your only option! If you hire a horse it comes with a guide and a taxi
comes with a taxi driver. First and foremost when it comes to bicycle hire
here in Vilcabamba you must understand that bicycles are very expensive to buy in
Ecuador. Chino does an excellent job with what is available to him. He takes a lot
of pride in his work. You are not going to get a mountain bike with suspension back
and front and top of the line gears etc. (if you want that then don't come to a
3rd world country).
Chino also does bicycle repair. So if you bring your bicycle over with you this
is the place to get it maintained in Vilcabamba. During the windy season there are
a lot of tire punctures here. There is a tree that grows everywhere that has nasty
long needles on it, sharp and strong enough to puncture a bicycle tire. We have
had a number of punctures repaired here and have always had good service and results.
