Foodie

They say the best way to get to know a country and its people is through its cuisine, its textures, its flavours, and its recipes passed on through generations. The best stories and legends are told around a kitchen table -and the culinary experiences throughout Ecuador will literally have you experience its different cultures. This can include typical street foods, traditional restaurants, cooking classes or living a full farm-to-table experience at a finca.

Talk to your Biulu Travel Creator to incorporate the experiences that you would like to have during your travels.


 

Farm to table Experience

The connection between food, the soil it grows on, the water it receives and the human being that harvests it – from the seed to the grill, the while process influences all aspects of life. Food is the fuel of our body and gives us energy to live, and can be both our medicine and our poison, although in many parts of the world the connection between what we put in our mouth and how it is grown is not very clear. Living a culinary experience, where you can witness the full process will re-establish this natural connection. Stay the night at a farm that will allow you the experience to see and participate on each part of the process and enjoy its results on the table!

We Create personalized Dream Trips



The concept of Biulu Travel was born out of the our own personal idea that knowledge and expertise necessary for creating amazing and personalized travel experiences and excellent in-country service should be independent and not linked in anyway to the height of the budget one can and is willing to spend on accommodation and such. How can it be that if you want the best legal advice you can pay a lawyer just for that, and know that it is independent – but in the travel business this is not the case. Sharing our knowledges, our first hand experiences, and most of all the love for the countries we live work and travel in, is what we love to do. Our initial base is Ecuador, where one of the founders of the company is located, with the intention to grow to other countries where we know there are like-minded people!

All of us working for Biulu also work or have worked for other operating agencies and are happy that we can now share our knowledge and service directly with you, and not only to other operators!
