Those looking for adventure holidays may find a trip to Vilcabamba in Ecuador's Loja province is a good place to go.
Mike Adams, editor of NaturalNews.com, said that he lived there for two years and found it had everything one could want, from great people to beautiful landscapes.
He stated that the climate is absolutely perfect, being neither too hot nor too cold, while the cost of living is low as well.
One of the best features of Vilcabamba is the number of different activities adventure travellers can enjoy while there.
Mr Adams recommended horseback riding through the Podocarpus National Forest, as well as cycling and walking excursions.
"There are many other tourist activities in Vilcabamba as well, including a hummingbird garden to the south, a botanical garden in Loja, the cacao-growing town of Zamora to the northeast and the Sunday market at Malacatos to the north," he added.
Vilcabamba is a Quichua word meaning 'Sacred Valley'
