The Garden of Forgetfulness is located just outside of Vilcabamba, Ecuador. The closest city with an airport is Loja. We recommend that you fly into Loja (LOH). You have to consider that your flight will come trough "Quito" Capital or "Guayaquil", then your connecting flight to Loja could be in the morning or in the afternoon.
If you want to make it easy when you´ll arrive to Loja, we can send you a cab to the airport that will cost you only 40 dollars coming straight to our farm.
Alternatively, you can fly into Guayaquil (GYE), take a cab to the bus terminal and then catch a bus to Loja. You can then take the bus from Loja to Vilcabamba (10 minutes from our farm), and we can send a cab for you there. This may save some money, but if you don't speak Spanish you may find it difficult to navigate.
