I have traveled most of Ecuador, and have come to know some of the most spectacular place that my county has to offer. The highlands with it's majestic mountains & volcanoes, are the best of the Andes. The rain forest is amazing with its lush vegetation & animal life, and of course the coast with it's beautiful beaches. Let us not forget the Galapagos Islands, a wonder of nature!

Ecuador is a major attraction for tourists. With the Galapagos Islands, Pacific coastal plains, the Amazon Rainforest in the east, and even mountains, there are a variety of locations to visit. Overall, the climate remains tropical throughout the year, making it a great getaway location at any time.

The capital of Quito is small, but has an old-world feel with an assortment of churches and museums. The Otavalo Indian Market is a must see along with Panecillo Hill. Then take a moment to visit the historic city’s center. In addition, vivid nightspots can be found in Quito’s oldest streets. Other beautiful, historic cities to visit include Cuenca, Guayaquil, and peaceful Loja.

For those with a more active streak, spend the day at Cotopaxi Volcano National Park, one of the most beautiful and highest active volcanoes in the world. Limpiopungo Lake’s mirror-like surface and the volcano’s scenic views will live on in your memories well after your vacation ends. Or take a trip to the Galapagos Islands where you will find friendly sea lions, iguanas, lizards, and an assortment of exotic birds and marine life. The Amazon Rainforest is home to macaws, monkeys, insects, and the native Huaorani people. 

You can spend a week or months exploring the exotic regions and cities of Ecuador, and still more will remain to be seen on your next visit. Find a guide to lead you through the historic cities, scenic views, and wildlife of Ecuador on Private Guides.
