From the majestic Andean highlands to the lush Amazon rainforest our fully guided Ecuador vacations offer unparalleled biodiversity and rich cultural heritage. Amazon river boats tuck into secluded waterways, remote jungle lodges offer serenity, highland haciendas showcase mountain cultures and history comes alive in colonial Quito and coastal Guayaquil. We are Ecuador travel experts—here to help you research, select, book and prepare for your Ecuador vacation with firsthand insight on the best things to do in Ecuador.

Located on the equator in the northwest corner of South America, Ecuador vacations operate year-round to explore high Andes cultures, biodiverse rainforest and Amazonian waterways, and colonial cities with modern comforts. Actively explore by boat, kayak, on foot, bike, horseback or even zipline for the Ecuador travel adventure of a lifetime. Paddle among flooded forests, learn about weaving and leatherwork from locals, hike around scenic white-capped volcanoes, fly among the cloud forest on a rainforest canopy tour and unlock the history behind Ecuador’s colorful colonial cities.

Tropical ecosystems are the most diverse on earth and Ecuador exemplifies this as a biodiversity hotspot. The country is slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Nevada but is home to roughly 16% of all the world’s bird species, 8% of mammals, 8% of amphibians and 5% of reptile species. Travel with experienced naturalist guides leading Ecuador excursions into the natural environments in search of flora and fauna. Our guides help you search for wildlife such as monkeys, sloths and anteaters. Jungle encounters with leaf cutter ants, iguanas and pink river dolphins are common. World class birding includes tanagers, toucans, quetzals and hummingbirds. Our Ecuador trips are designed to appeal to travelers seeking to experience nature, wildlife, culture and history up close.
