Ecuador encompasses volcanoes and cloud forests, a stunning colonial capital, rare biodiversity, indigenous markets and rich Andean culture.

WHY VISIT ECUADOR?

There are volcanoes to climb, Andean towns and villages to explore and some first class horse riding.

While the Galapagos Islands have long been the region’s main attraction, the arrival of some impressive eco lodges and spoiling highland haciendas make the mainland equally impressive.

Those interested in surfing will find some of the best breaks in South America on Ecuador’s Pacific coast. Don’t forget to pick up a panama hat in Cuenca, made from toquilla straw – we’ll be sure to send you to our favourite craftsman.

If time allows, we would suggest combining with neighbouring Colombia or Peru. A luxury trip to Ecuador works as well for a honeymoon as it does for families and groups of friends.

ECUADOR INSPIRATION

Select a Sense

Ecuadorian cuisine includes fresh seafood, exotic fruits, and hearty Andean staples. Local ceviche is particularly noteworthy, along with llapingachos, potato pancakes filled with cheese. For a unique drink, try canelazo, a warm, spiced alcohol, perfect for Andean nights.

Traditional genres like pasillo and sanjuanito blend Indigenous, African, and Spanish influences. Typical instruments include panpipes and charangos. For Afro-Ecuadorian rhythms, try the bomba! Tune into our playlist below for the best local sounds from Ecuador.

LISTEN IN

It’s all about the artisans! Stock up with colourful textiles from Otavalo, intricate Tagua nut carvings, and Panama hats, misnamed, but famously crafted in Cuenca, are quintessential.

Check out Jorge Icaza’s Huasipungo, depicting indigenous struggles and the magical realism of Pablo Palacio.

Contemporary voices include Gabriela Alemán, most notably, her Poso Wells.
