ecuador holidays

With more biodiversity per square kilometer than any other nation in the world, Ecuador captures the very essence of South America.

One of South America’s smallest nations and one of only two not to share a border with Brazil, Ecuador is far more than the gateway to Galapagos. From dense tropical rainforest to towering mountain ranges coated in snow, it’s essentially a continent in miniature form. Home to both the first and second ever UNESCO Heritage Sites, Ecuador is a nation of bold colours, amazing diversity and a charming people.

  • The Quilotoa Loop is an exceptionally scenic hiking route that showcases everything from indigenous mountainside villages to pristine blue lakes.
  • You’ll hear the impressive Pailon del Diablo (Devil’s Cauldron) waterfall long before you see it. Surrounded by dense jungle, a steep stairway takes you up to its summit.
