The Best of Ecuador

With pristine landscapes of great contrast, colourful indigenous tribes and market towns, unique and inspiring wildlife, and superb colonial architecture, Ecuador is full of attractions. To help you get started, we've compiled a list of our favourite destinations in Ecuador.


Steeped in history, capital city Quito demands a visit from anyone passing through the country. A combination of colonial and more modern buildings gives the city an incredibly diverse landscape, especially with the Andes reigning supreme in the background. The city is a staggering 9,350 feet above sea level and the only place on earth where you can stand with one foot on each side of the equator!

Galapagos Islands

Known for the role they played informing Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution, the Galapagos Islands are a living museum of natural history. With roughly 95% of its pre-human wildlife diversity still roaming the islands and its surrounding waters, the islands make up the most pristine ecosystem in the world. Licensed guides take explorers on tours to acquaint themselves with fearless animals including giant tortoises, sea lions, marine iguanas and more.


The market which spreads across Otavalo is a hive of activity and has single-handedly put this city on the map. The market offers some fabulous shopping opportunities and brilliant cultural displays of traditional crafts and costumes. The Otavaleno people have retained virtually all of their traditional heritage, making the city a telling insight into the country’s rich history and culture.

Amazon Rainforest

The Amazon Rainforest has one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world and the Ecuadorian portion of is right up there. Its famous Yasuni National Park has been acclaimed as the single most biologically diverse area on the planet. Hundreds of species of fish, reptile, mammal and thousands of different birds and insects live within the lush canopy of the jungle, making it a blissful haven for nature-lovers and wildlife fanatics.
