Why You Should Take an
Ecuador Vacation

Thousands of people each year take an Ecuador vacation. Why? There are tons of reasons that appeal to people from all over the world and with an array of interests.

Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in Latin America, but that small square footage holds a variety that is hard to match elsewhere. In one day you can go from the Pacific Coast to the Andes Mountains and down into the Amazon Rain-forest. Even after more than ten years in Ecuador I'm still finding new places to visit and explore.

Plus the friendly, helpful people and the extensive (easy-to-navigate) public bus system make it a good choice that you are sure to enjoy.

Thrill Seekers?

There are tons of exciting things to try in Ecuador. Like:

  • Surfing
  • Rafting
  • Kayaking
  • Mountain Climbing
  • Canyoning
  • Paragliding
  • Horseback riding
  • Hiking
  • Diving
  • Caving
  • And more...

Need to Relax?

There are plenty of places to lay back, read a book and just enjoy the scenery. Whether in a jungle tree house, volcano heated hot springs, a historic hacienda or a cabana on the beach you will be able to rest from the stress of everyday life.

Have a Bucket List?

If you do, the Galapagos Islands are likely on that list. (If not, you may want to add them.) The Galapagos are part of Ecuador and flights and tours to these unique islands leave from the mainland daily.

Come down and mark this one as "Been there, done that"! And while you are here, take in some of the other experiences Ecuador has to offer.

More Reason to Come to Ecuador

Another great thing about Ecuador is it's climate hardly changes. So you can come to Ecuador ANY time of the year!

Plus traveling through Ecuador is still relatively cheap. So even though airfare can be high, once you are here you will find experiences to fit any budget.

For those coming from the United States...you don't even have to exchange your money, because Ecuador uses the US dollar.
