Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America, located right on the Equator, and crossed from north to south by a series of fertile Andean valleys, scattered among snow peaks and active volcanoes. Ecuador lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Amazon Basin, between Colombia & Peru. Beside its beautiful landscapes, it offers such wonderful attractions including the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon Rain Forest and the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest. Its colonial cities, colourful Indian markets, and a rich historical and cultural heritage make this small South American country a destination well worth visiting.

Wonderful wildlife is another delight in Ecuador: 'Hot and sunny here in the Andes ....on every single ride over the last two months, we have seen at least one condor at close range' (August 2012)


NEW QUITO AIRPORT opened on 20 February 2013

Please estimate at least 1 hour drive between the new airport and Quito because the new access roads will not be completed for some time.
