Charter Destination Ecuador

Share this page

Set on South America's western coast, astride the equator, the fascinating country of Ecuador is wildly diverse. Rugged shorelines, Amazonian jungle, high peaks of the Andes and wildlife-rich Galapagos isles belong to this amazing destination.

The first two UNESCO World Heritage sites ever created were the Galapgos and the city of Quito - Ecuador is certainly filled with spectacular natural variety. To fully experience local culture and history, the bustling cities across 24 provinces will give a true flavour. Capital city Quito, set to a stunning volcanic backdrop, is packed with attractions: Quito Cathedral and Basilica del Voto Nacional are stand-outs, together with many gorgeous parks.

Do not miss the opportunity for an immersive Amazon adventure. Encounter wildlife and indigenous plant life, while tribal communities delight visitors with cultural experiences. Alternatively the Ecuadorian Andes are brimming with exciting activities such as whitewater rafting, horse-riding, hiking and biking, all enjoyed in exquisite surroundings. Head to the small mountain town of Otavalo for retail therapy at the unique craft market or relax in the hot springs at Banos Banos.

Bordered by the South Pacific Ocean, Ecuador's meandering coastline is made up of many beaches and lively shore-side towns. Enjoy long velvet beaches at Puerto Lopez and, when the sun goes down, get lost in the sway of the many salsa clubs' rhythm. Nearby the beautiful Isla de la Plata is easily accessible by yacht for some amazing sight seeing. Nature-activities and eco-tours are found at Pueblo Ecologico Alandaluz, whereas Salango is the perfect beach for snorkelling or scuba diving.

  • Take a guide to the Amazon and spot spider monkeys swinging from branch to branch across the canopy, while sloths dangle from lower branches.
