An Ecuador holiday gives you the opportunity to see the sights and sample the fascinating culture of one of South America’s most interesting destinations. Some escorted tours in Ecuador appeal more to trekkers and backpackers, while some place more of an emphasis on luxury accommodation and sightseeing, making it important to choose the right tour. Tours also vary in cost and length, from a few days to several weeks or longer, and it is also possible to visit the country independently.
Some of the highlights of any visit to Ecuador include the colonial capital city of Quito, the scenic Cotopaxi Volcano national park, and the various Inca ruins scattered around the country. Ecuador has retained much of its unique character, and many tours offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in the country’s culture, or to explore its diverse plant and animal life.
