Here are some great Ecuador hotel discounts on great Ecuador hotels.

This is the start of a series on great places to stay in Ecuador… excellent hotels which also offer discounts to Ecuador Living Club members.

The savings from two or three nights’ stay in Ecuador is often more than the cost of Ecuador Living Club membership.  However the hotels we have chosen for our members are really outstanding.

Since readers usually arrive in Quito and most flights from North America arrive late at night (and depart early in the morning) most stay at least two nights (arriving and leaving) in Ecuador’s capital city so the hotel savings alone can exceed the cost of subscription.

The first Ecuador hotel we’ll review in this city is in Quito, Stubel Suites & Cafe.


Many readers have written to me how much they love this boutique hotel yet I had never personally been there. So last time Merri and I were in Quito, I grabbed my pocket Canon and we visited the Stubel and took these shots.


The Stubel Suites & Cafe is in our favorite part of Quito the Floresta district… residential, quiet, safe and with incredible views.  The cafe is surrounded in glass so you can see all.


The initial image is of the hotel spilling down like Guapulo offering these…




views of the…


the Guapulo Cathedral.

The rooms are…


spacious with…


small kitchens.  The entire hotel is…


well decorated.

Plus there is a…


small but excellent conference facility and…


exercise room.

The entire hotel is modern and decorated in…


good taste.

On the subject of taste, we of course had to visit the cafe and here’s the menu.  Breakfast is excellent and reasonable.  Were it morning this would have been…


my choice.  Since we were just visiting we had a dessert.


This is their dessert menu!


Those of you who know of my chocoholisim realize this would be my choice.  I planned to to try the Tiramisu and Copa de Helado as well… “all in the name of journalism” I said.  Merri edits my work and eliminates errors in my writing so that bluff did not work.  Good editors cannot be fooled so easily!

This gives us an excuse to return many times and you should as well.  This is a small intimate hotel, the staff very friendly.

Here’s the contact information for the Stubel Suites & Cafe in Quito and the prices for Ecuador Living.

Save in Ecuador with Ecuador hotel discounts.  A reader recently sent this note.

Hi, I am in Cuenca with my family, wife and 2 little ones. Was wondering if you could help me with a driver from Quito airport at 9:20 am, Friday August 12, to Hotel Land of The Sun for 1 nite. Want to go to the markets Saturday on the way back to Quito and the Radisson( thanks for the great rate!). Will need a driver for that also. I was supposed to do your shopping deal after the Ultimate Event in Feb but missed the Event at the last minute, death in the family. Anyway, any info will be appreciated. We stayed at Palmuzul 3 nites at 40% off and reduced rates at the Radisson in Quito and La Piedra in Bahia de Caraquez. Thanks for already saving us a fortune! Looking forward to seeing Cotacachi before we head back.Thanks again.

Here is the updated Ecuador tour schedule for the rest of 2011 and winter of 2012.

Natural health & healthy skin can help you invent your future.

Last Saturday’s message Invent Your Future by the Inch looked at how jumping out of trees can lead to swollen heads and scars.

First, may I thank the many readers who sent their good wishes to me.  How wonderful it is to receive such positive blessings!  The knee and the head are healing very quickly and I am feeling very good.  The only thing broken I believe was my pride. I think this is good.

As explained last week, this is my favorite most energetic time of the year… but I’ll try to temper my exuberance for the season with a bit more caution.

In the hopes of avoiding a Harry Potter type slash across my forehead forever, I wrote to…


our friend Candace Newman… the Essential Oil lady a note.

I wrote:  Candace, I had a little head banger.  Worse than it looks as there is Dragon’s Blood on the cut.  Can you send a bottle of your Scar & Bruise Oil.    Any suggestions of other oils I might apply in the healing process?

Candace replied:  Gary,  1. Put a drop of pure Lavender on a Q-tip or cotton ball and swipe the cut once as a pure antiseptic and to dry it out. One time may be enough…you can do this 3 X day if needed to dry it up. Be careful not to get this near your eyes. If you ever get pure essential oil in your eye….wash it out with milk or cream….NOT water.

2.   After the cut is dry…until we get the Scar Oil to you…you can make a healing salve with a little raw honey in your hand and 1 drop of Lavender.

3.  Then the Scar Oil can be used when the cut has dried up…..Use it several times a day and especially at night for sleep for days and weeks if needed. Rub it gently in. Our Scar Oil is used for major surgical scars and the oils in it are major for cell regeneration and skin repair. It’s one of our very BEST Formulas.  Take care of your head!

Another friend Bob Shane had sent me a tube of “Dr. Nordyke’s New Zealand Manuka Wound Honey” to try out… so now I had a real test to experiement with.

I have followed Candace’s advice and the healing moved along very quickly. Here I am just one week later.


This reminds me how well natural health ideas work…. and how they can save.

Had I taken a modern route to the hospital for stitches, antibiotics, Xrays  and a Tetanus shot… I would have spent $500 or more.  As it was the tube of wound honey was about $25 and the Scar & Bruise Oil $29.  I have used only a bit of each so still have enough for many more wounds & scars.  Hopefully I won’t have more… but on the other hand at 65 years… being able to still get up in a tree might be worth the risks.

Plus antibiotics and Tetanus shots carry their own risks and perhaps leave invisible scars.

I am sure my regular yoga helped shift the fall into a few aches and pains instead of something broken.  The exercises I do are free as well.

Simply put… there are many approaches to natural health that save a lot of money and work very well. One user from Florida worte: “I just want to tell you how wonderful I think your Scar & Bruise Oil is. I started using it right after the stitches were removed from my forehead and within three months the scar has disappeared. Thank you!”

Effective, inexpensive natural health solution will grow in importance as medical costs rose.  Essential oils for healthy skin and natural health can also help you earn income.  See how below.

Candace & John Newman at Oil Lady Aromatherapy LLC   (OLA) are now in the formulation stages with us and our initial readers who want to distrbute essential oils.  They have started with three programs:

Essential Oil Plan #1: Distributor.  OLA has agreed to let us provide an annual educational program to readers who become distributors and purchase  a $300.00 “OLA Start-Up Package”.   Distributors pay $10.00 per month (automatic charge on a credit card) for quarterly teleconference training from Candace and John plus receive the bi monthly educational “Aromatherapy Guide” and monthly “OLA Emailed Newsletter”.

The $300.00 “OLA Start-Up Package” includes a sample of the products they would be retailing, two Essential Oil Training Classes on DVD, and instructions for the program.

Essential Oil Plan #2: Affiliate.  Readers can become OLA Affiliates.   Affiliates can place as many OLA products as they choose on their website.  Customers click through to a special OLA shopping cart from the affiliate’s  website. The affiliate handles no merchandise and puts out no upfront money for retail product sales. The order comes directly to the OLA shopping cart which tracks affiliate sales.   Affiliate receive 15% commission of gross product sales each month.

Essential Oil Plan #3: Wholesaler.  Wholesalers purchase directly from OLA at wholesale prices.   Wholesalers can sell OLA products  at any price they choose.   OLA provides Wholesalers  with the product photos and info to use on the Wholesalers website. The profit margin belongs totally to the Wholesaler.   Wholesalers purchase, stock, ship & sell OLA products. There is no minimum order on how much they need to purchase from us at wholesale prices.  Wholesalers receive discounts based on the size of their purchases.  Orders over $1,000.00 receive 5% additional discount.   $2,500.00 receive 7.5%.    $5,000 receives 10% off.

Wholesalers can also have a private label for their company but there are added costs for making labels, set-up fees, and minimum orders for each product they purchase.  This is negotiable in advance.

OLAs goal is to provide simple uncomplicated alternatives either as Distributors,  Affiliates or Wholesalers.

The OLA Distributor and Wholesaler plans are ready to go.  The OLA Affiliate Plan is scheduled for late September or beginning of October.
