Famous for the Galapagos Islands which lie 1000km off shore, the Ecuadorian mainland also has much to offer. From arriving in Quito in the breath-taking avenue of volcanoes, to exploring the cloud forests, the Andes or the stunning volcanic crater lakes, you certainly won't be disappointed.

The country offers a lot to the traveller with a great tourism infrastructure, plenty of Spanish schools, volunteer programs and a great diversity in things to see and do. It's a destination that attracts travellers of all ages, from school leavers to retired wanderers and has something for everyone.

Despite the developed tourism here, Ecuador has retained much of the country's indigenous flavour. From region to region, different cultural groups with their different traditions inhabit the land, from the pacific coastline through the Andean slopes to the Amazon Basin in the east. The area is also rich in natural diversity with many different climate zones and as such, a range of flora and fauna. The national parks offer excellent access points for responsible eco-tourism and unforgettable experiences.

The best way to see the country is to get off the beaten track at every opportunity, see the real country, and experience the warmth of the indigenous communities. The country is small in size but offers plenty of destinations to explore and activities to take part in!
