Ecuador Holidays

Traditional Andean life down the central part of the country, lapping beaches on the Pacific Coast in western Ecuador, lush and extremely biodiverse cloud forest and Amazon jungle in the east and the magnificent living Jurassic park off the coast - The Galapagos Island.

Ecuador is everything good about the continent in one country.  It is slightly less on the beaten track than say Chile or Peru and is all the better for it.  There are some great and very comfortable hotels to stay at during your trip around Ecuador, our favourites are: Hacienda Cusin and Mashpi Lodge.

It is a small country, so easy to get around with it's newly refurbished railway and good short domestic flights. Although the Galapagos Islands are the main attraction here - mainland Ecuador should not be overlooked, as in this small country you will find much diversity in landscapes and regions from scenes of snowy-capped peaks to luscious vegetation buzzing with wildlife. 

Therefore, Ecuador boasts many attractions for the whole family, honeymooners or even solo adventure seekers. Your holiday can involve anything from listening to the flurry of birds and spotting fresh water dophins in the almost uninhabited Ecuadorian Amazon, strolling around the gorgeous Cuenca and soaking in the deep seated culture of this most traditional country or taking a flight into the magical spectacle of nature that is the Galapagos Islands - it is a great destination with something for everyone.

The driest months are June to September down the central Andean region.  The best time to visit the Galapagos Islands is from January to May, although it is a year round destination.
