Ecuador Romantic Hacienda

Hi!
I´m looking for recommendations for a romantic hacienda stay while in Ecuador. It could basically be anywhere in the country but we would like a nice historic hacienda for a maximum of 200US/night/room. Activities are not important but we wouldn´t mind a open fire somewhere (maybe even in the room). We are open to suggestions though. Please give us your recommendations.

Kourou to Cayenne by bus?

Does anyone have an updated bus schedule of buses of Kourou to Cayenne? Also, where do the buses depart from in Kourou? I've heard there's no bus station or bus stop per se, that they just circle around picking people up?

Buses from Jujuy to Humahuaca, Purmamarca etc.

Hello there! I'm in need of some assistance with buses in the Quebrada de Humahuaca region. I'm going to be Salta for about four days and I'd like to make two of those nights stays in different towns of either Tilcara, Humahuaca, or Purmamarca. I've found plenty of buses from Salta to Jujuy, but nothing online for Jujuy to the Humahuaca area. Are buses so frequent that I don't really need to book tickets in advance? I'd really like to book my hotels in two different towns in advance, but I'm…
