Ecuador Tours

Ecuador Tours

Ecuador Tours. Ecuador is an incredibly diverse country, yet it is also easy to get around in. Where else can you see blue footed boobies and whales on the coast one day, hike and birdwatch in the cloudforest the next, then ride your bike down a snow-covered volcano and visit a colonial city the next, only to follow it up with a visit with an indigenous community in the Amazon Basin?

The Galapagos Islands are, of course, in Ecuador, but they are such an amazing destination we have them listed in their own category here: Galapagos Islands Trips
