I've been meaning to get to writing this for a week now but....
Things have been BUSY!
One of the things we do here at Quinta Oasis is to find ways to contribute to our community. One of my favorite things is to visit the small school in Rio Chico. The children just light up when they see us.
Each Christmas we give out Christmas bags, something like filling stockings in the USA. The bags are full of candy, cookies and other goodies. We did this before they left for the holidays.
If indeed a picture tells 1000 words, then you'll feel the same joy just from seeing these photographs. A big plus was that we were joined by two guests we had staying at Quinta Oasis. They were Monika and Marcin from Poland. They too felt the same joy and lightness as we all watched the Christmas skits and gave out our gifts. So nice to be able to share this experience with guests from another country!
Christmas at the Rio Chico School
In the last sixty days Quinta Oasis has really taken form. The Upper Terrace with the pool, poolside bathroom, an outdoor bar, kitchen and grill, dining area, fire pit and patio are complete but for the appliances and special touches we are planning. We inaugurated the kitchen and fire pit on New Year's Eve with our guests! The yoga studio that doubles as a relaxing place to socialize or nap in the hammocks is done. And we are now building the south wall which should be done in about a week.
Here's what's new
Special Offer for Group Leaders and Facilitators
I've run groups and retreats before so I know how tiring it can be to lead a group. For those of you who run retreats book your group of ten by March 1, 2018 and you'll receive FREE lodging two days before (to get acclimated) and two days after (to rest and enjoy) your retreat.
To get you started download our comprehensive Group Leader Guide here with all the details on bringing a group to Quinta Oasis In Ecuador.
Special Offer for Individual Guests
For those of you who want to get out of the FREEZING COLD that's happening in the USA and other places, book your reservations now for your 6 night stay between now and March 1, 2018 and receive the 7th night FREE - and a complimentary "off the beaten path" excursion for you and a guest. It's high season here as well as Feriado (holidays) so booking now gets you ahead of the crowd. And into warm, sunny weather, long walks on the beach and breezy nights at the fire pit. Couldn't you use that about now?
Thank you again to all who have kept us motivated, inspired and helped us retain a sense of humor (much needed in Ecuador)! We're excited about 2018 and we look forward to having you visit us soon!
