Despite its compact size, Ecuador serves up an astounding kaleidoscope of experiences, from the otherworldly Highlands ringed by slumbering volcanic peaks to the species-rich Amazonian rainforests. For outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers, Ecuador promises opportunities to embrace its raw, untamed wildernesses. Hike through ethereal Andean cloud forests to surreal crater lakes. Paddle remote Amazonian tributaries to find elusive wildlife like jaguars and pink river dolphins. Scuba dive into the marine wonderlands surrounding the legendary Galápagos archipelago.

Yet the true spirit of Ecuador extends far beyond its natural splendors into the richly-layered indigenous cultures and colonial heritage infusing every corner. Wander the realm of the ancient Inca at archaeological marvels like Ingapirca. Encounter the Huaorani people upholding long-preserved traditions in the Amazon Basin. Delight in the beautifully preserved 16th-century plazas and ornately carved churches of Quito and Cuenca, two remarkably intact Spanish colonial centers designated as UNESCO World Heritage gems.

Despite Ecuador’s adventurous allures, refined luxury awaits those who venture here. Unwind in lavish historic haciendas, or escape to intimate beachfront lodges along the idyllic Pacific sands. Board luxury expedition cruises unveiling up-close encounters with the iconic Galápagos wildlife. No matter where you turn in this extraordinary nation, adventures harmoniously blend with pampering comforts tailored for worldly, discerning travelers.

Travel Information

A country of incredible natural beauty, you’ll be surrounded by the Amazon and stunning mountainous landscapes. One of Ecuador’s highlights is of course the Galápagos Islands. Here you’ll find the most extraordinary ranges of wildlife on the planet. Darwin famously refined his theory of evolution while exploring the Galápagos Islands.

Ecuador has suffered from dictatorships and economic stagnation over the years. Tourism is now one of the most important aspects of the Ecuadorian economy.

You’ll certainly want to visit Quito, the capital city perched on a volcano. It’s the second-highest capital city in the world, in terms of its geographical location! Intrepid travellers will want to explore the Amazon jungle.

Ecuador is progressive in terms of LGBTQ+ rights in South America, having legalized same-sex sexual activity and recognizing same-sex unions. Same-sex marriage was legalized in 2019, marking a significant step towards equality.

The country also offers some protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Despite legal advancements, social acceptance varies, with LGBTQ+ individuals sometimes facing challenges. Activism and advocacy are vital in pushing for further rights and acceptance within Ecuadorian society.

Take a trip to the Amazon and experience unrivalled biodiversity. You can also take a guided tour and visit some of the tribes native to these parts.

Head to the Galapagos Islands, a volcanic archipelago that boasts much of the world’s greatest wildlife.

Immerse yourself in the streets of the capital city, Quito. At over 900 feet above sea level, it’s one of the world’s highest capitals. Head to the Old Town and see stunning colonial-era buildings. Quito was built on the foundations of an ancient Inca city, the civilisation that was overwhelmed by the arrival of the conquistadors.

    To get to Ecuador, we recommend flying to Quito via Madrid, another South American airport or some USA airports.
