Why It's a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from Miami to Quito starts from $491 with taxes for travel in late January (Santa Barbara Airlines). Add to that $188 per person, including tax, for two nights at the Sheraton Quito Hotel, $52 for one night at Puertolago Country Inn, $82 for one night at Termas de Papallacta, $343 for two nights at La Casa del Suizo, and $67 for one night at Hacienda Leito Los Llanganates, and you'd be paying $1,223 for just the airfare and accommodations. For just $186 more than that, this package covers the flight, seven nights' hotel accommodations, plus 20 meals, all ground transportation—including round-trip airport transfers and cross-country sightseeing—plus the services of an English-speaking guide and all taxes and fees.

More Extend your stay in Quito from $145 per person per night, based on double occupancy, plus an additional fee of $100 per person.
