More Than Just the Galapagos
Ecuador boasts incredible biodiversity as well as a rich cultural history – and the advantage of being a year-round destination thanks to its geographical location. Whether you are ziplining through the Cloud Forest, horseback riding around a traditional hacienda, or cruising aboard a speedboat in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador has something for every traveler.
Starting in its gorgeous colonial capital, Quito, travelers can start their trip off with a short flight to the Galapagos Islands for a mix of land and sea excursions that can be tailored to their interests such as scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, or hiking. Within these islands you can snorkel with sea lions, swim alongside marine iguanas, spot manta rays from above on your boat or see the silhouettes of hammerhead sharks from below with your scuba gear.
While the Galapagos are on every traveler’s bucket list, mainland Ecuador is not to be missed. The Cloud Forests are home to a wide range of flora and fauna and is the perfect location for both nature and adventure enthusiasts. The capital city of Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is overflowing with beautiful Spanish colonial architecture, history and culture. A visit here is the perfect introduction to Ecuadorian cuisine and the quiteño lifestyle while walking through its historic center.
