Places to Visit in Ecuador

The cultural highlands of Ecuador are a fantastic mixture of Spanish colonialism and Amerindian influences, best seen in the architecture and markets of places such as Quito, Otavalo and Cuenca.

Places to visit

The Galapagos Islands, home to the world’s most fascinating wildlife, helped shape Darwin’s theory of evolution. Here you can come face to face with giant tortoises, catch a glimpse of a blue-footed booby or swim with playful seals and penguins. Taking a cruise is the best way to become intimately acquainted with the very different islands in the archipelago, making shore landings, snorkelling, kayaking or diving by day, and enjoying first rate amenities in the evenings. The Amazon, which dominates one third of Ecuador’s land mass, offers another phenomenal wildlife experience in Ecuador. When it comes to deciding where to go in Ecuador you should first consider when you intend to go and the things you want to do in Ecuador.
