Ecuador is the most perfect pocket-sized country in Latin America. Nothing is too far away, the diversity is extraordinary and you can get a real feel for the place and the friendliness of its people without requiring too much time. You may find that you can avoid taking any internal flights at all, but only if you can’t resist the lure of the Galapagos and the depths of the Amazon, then you’ll need to get airborne. On our tailor made itineraries, you will experience colonial Quito, cruise on board MV Santa Cruz in the Galapagos islands or head North to the Andes where a stay ona hacienda will show you a different way of life. You can also combine a stay in Ecuador and The Galapagos Islands with visits to the fascinating Inca ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru.
The Ecuador Mainland is often overlooked by those heading straight to the Galapagos Islands, yet this little explored country is a destination made for travel. Home to soaring Andean peaks, Amazon wilderness, jagged coastline and cobbled colonial towns, Ecuador boasts all of South America’s allure, and more. Galapagos Islands aside, here are a few of our recommended wonders which highlight Ecuador as a mini South America.
Quito is Ecuador’s charming capital city, perched high in the Andean mountains in the shadows of the Pichincha volcano.
