Ecuador Vacation

Ecuador is a small treasure, packing such a baffling amount of diversity within its borders that it can be difficult to believe.


On Ecuador tours you'll fall in love with the wildlife on show in places like the Galapagos, be charmed by the colonial splendor of Quito, enjoy traversing the mountain ranges of the Andes and find the perfect moment to relax on the country's beautiful beaches.


All that, and Ecuador still has so much more to explore, from the Amazon to the Afro-Ecuadorian towns and everything in between.

Ecuador Tours

Boasting an array of quaint colonial cities, an abundance of adventure activities and nature walks, along with tours to the mighty Ecuadorian Amazon, Ecuador tours have so much on offer. No wonder it is increasingly becoming more and more popular with tourists. And no, of course we didn’t forget Ecuador’s main highlight – the unique splendor of the Galapagos Islands.

When your capital is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you know you have a special country, and Ecuador is one of those countries where itinerary planning is made easier just by saying yes to most points on the map.

Ecuador, although maybe not as famous as the likes of Brazil or Peru, should never be overlooked when planning your South America travels.

Best time of the year to visit Ecuador?

For the Galapagos islands the best time to visit would be between Jan-May.

For coastal trips of Ecuador Dec-April would be the best time to visit.

General high seasons are June-September but don’t let this put you off going year round.

Food and Culture of Ecuador

Like Peru, Ecuador also boasts the wonderful cerviche, a perfect summertime dish that offers fresh, un-cooked fish with a tremendous lime sauce over the top.

Soups and stews are a common dinner dish, with famous ingredients being based around bananas, and more starchy ingredients like potato and rice.

Lining the pacific coast, Ecuador also boasts a wonderful array of fish plates.

the ubiquitous South American empanada is the typical snack in Ecuador and exotic fresh fruit is consumed in abundance.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Ecuador

A trip to Ecuador can’t be completed without experiencing the wonders of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest. True, you can see it in Brazil, Peru or Bolivia and also get a great experience but there is something so special about contrasting the animals on show in the Galapagos, compared to those in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Amazon tours force you to stay alert, open your eyes and keep watch as lurking below, above or beside you could be a deadly anaconda, a stealthy croc, a beautiful swooping bird or a cheeky swinging monkey.

Galapagos tours will let you in to Darwin’s bewildering colorful world of exotic animals. All wildlife enthusiasts from around the world will have the Galapagos Islands at the top of their bucket list, however you don’t need to be a maverick zoologist to appreciate this dream fusion of color and rare wildlife, the Galapagos is magnetic simply because of its unrivaled beauty.

The charm of Ecuador, along with its powerful nature, lies in its cobbled streets, its colonial architecture and its old fashioned, languid way of life. Quito, for a capital city, surprisingly offers these small-town-like charms, especially in the old town, where labyrinthine alleyways are met with Gothic churches, monasteries and traffic is guided by whistle yielding policemen. The frenetic life adds so much to the charm.

Otavalo Marketplace, located just an hour north of Quito, epitomizes the small, hidden charms of a South American country that, if stumbled upon serendipitously, would feature highly in your reviews of your Ecuador tours. Showcasing an eclectic range of traditional clothing, handicraft goods, wooden sculptures, creative hammocks and colorful house rugs etc, Otavalo Market flourishes with an assortment of great stalls.

The lure of those fun adventure tours is too appealing to turn down on your Ecuador tours, and Baños is just the town to tempt you into all those activities you’ve been craving. Make sure you go on the canyoning tour, the beautiful hiking tours on offer and try to rent a quad and explore the beauty of Baños, a hillside town enclosed by scenic mountains, gushing waterfalls and soothing thermal baths, a rewarding stop after all those adventure day trips.

One of my favorite beach towns in the world hails from Ecuador, and it’s that of Montañita, the sleepy hippy haven that offers great surf and even better beach bars and atmosphere. A world apart from bustling cities back home, Montañita is so appealing on so many levels.

Anton Barmettler, May 2018

Marilyn did an excellent job in arranging a complete customized trip according to my personal preferences.

Janet Avramova, April 2018

Marilyn was really easy to get in touch with. She organized our trip very well. We didn’t have any problems. The hotel was great, the staff was very kind and friendly. They made sure we have everything necessary to enjoy our stay. We had two mornings that we had to leave before the breakfast time. They gave us a small breakfast when we had to leave early and kept our luggage the last day after the check out time.Our guide in Quito (Cristian) was very knowledgable, kind and patient. He was accommodating to all of our needs. We were able to see the old Quito and the ecuator line. In the jungle we had a great guide too. His name was Pedro. He was showing us different animals while we were on the canoe or while we were walking in the jungle not only during the day but even during the night. Pedro made sure we had everything we needed. The Jamu Lodge was good. The food was great and plentiful. The accommodation was good. It needs a little bit touch up still, because inside there was a lot of bugs on the floor and no windows only nets. On the other hand that gave us the opportunity to experience sleeping as if we are in the jungle. We were also able to hear all of the amazing jungle sounds (minus the storm we had our first night); to see the shaman of the siona tribes and how they prepare there food called” iuka”. It was our first time being on a canoe. We enjoyed it!
