    I live about 2 kilometers from that airstrip near Cumbatatza in the barrio San Francisco. I just wanted to let you know that the military flights no longer land here. Every once in a while we see a small plane or maybe a helicopter, but nothing more. There was talk of restablishing service to Guyaquil on Fridays only, but after making a few phone calls, we discovered that it was just a rumor. Also, we’ve been told that foreigners aren’t allowed on these flights for “security” reasons. My wife and I would definitely take advantage of this service because it would cost the same as the bus! As a final comment, I would have to agree with your statement about visiting Zamora. Zamora is probably one of the most overlooked and less frequented town by tourists. I’ve been here in Cumbaratza for over a year, and I rarely see tourists. The infrastructure of this small city isn’t prepared to handle large groups of tourists like other cities, ie, Baños, Tena. It is very clean and one of the safest cities in Ecuador. If you love nature, this is the place to go!!! Don’t forget to smell the orchids!!!
