Equador has got so much to offer; traditional Andean life thrives in the mountains at its heart, with sweet, lapping beaches of the Pacific in the west, and lush and extremely biodiverse cloud forest and Amazon jungle to the east. Then, offshore, there are the magnificent islands of the Galapagos, like a living Jurassic park. This is a country of extraordinary and unique landscapes.
What are the Highlights of a Holiday in Equador?
Ecuador is everything that is great about South America in one country. It is slightly more off the beaten track than say Chile or Peru, and it is all the better for it! There are some great and very comfortable hotels to enjoy during your trip around Ecuador; our favourites include Hacienda Cusin and Mashpi Lodge.
As a result, Ecuador boasts many attractions for the whole family, honeymooners or even solo adventure seekers. Your holiday may involve anything from listening to the flurry of birds and spotting fresh water dophins in the almost uninhabited Ecuadorian Amazon, strolling around the gorgeous city of Cuenca and soaking in the deep-seated culture of this very traditional country, or taking a flight to the magical spectacle of nature that is the Galapagos Islands - Equador is a great destination, with something for everyone.
