Bolivia (Condoriri, Illimani, Huayna Potosi) info

I am planning an unguided trip to Bolivia for spring/summer 2018. I would appreciate the opportunity to hear from anyone who has done a similar trip in the last few years.

Seirra Nevada Expeditions (Ecuador) still the best?

My sister and I are pllanning a Trip to Ecuador. We have minimal mountaineering experience but lots of hiking and canoeing experience. My understanding is that Ecuador has some of the less technical mountains so it's a good place to get started.
