There is just so much to do in Ecuador. In the Andean highlands, indigenous villages and excellent hiking opportunities abound. The vast Amazon rainforest features intimate and wild nature experiences accessed via jungle hikes and canoe rides. The Pacific coast has its own chill rhythms, where laid-back beach towns and waves attract international backpackers and surfers. And, of course, the infamous Galapagos Islands offer visitors unequalled, face-to-face experiences with unique wildlife, plus the chance to do some of the most luxurious island-hopping the world has to offer.
