Ecuador is a favorite destination for international travelers
Start with whitewater kayaking, rafting, biking, yoga retreats, bird watching and multi-sport adventures
Ecuador is a favorite destination for multi-sport destinations! Take your choice: whitewater kayaking, rafting, mountain biking, yoga retreats, bird watching, mountain climbing, and that is just the start of what you can do here. A country of immense cultural wealth and geographical diversity unmatched in the Americas, Ecuador is only half the size of France. The striking geographical and cultural contrasts found in this one small country are what make Ecuador such a fascinating place to visit. Ecuador consists of the towering Andes, snowcapped volcanoes, jungle birds and animals, expanses of Amazon jungle, the Pacific Coast and the Galapagos Islands. Ecuadorians include descendants of the Spanish conquistadors and original pre-Columbian inhabitants, many of whom still speak “Quicha” and maintain traditions from Inca times and before. The people are approachable and easy going and you will find them remarkably open to travelers. The rivers of Ecuador are what initially brought us to this beautiful country, but it was the people. the scenery, the potential of this favored destination that have kept us here all these years. Here you will embrace the theme #allyouneedisecuador.
