Your Travellers Guide to
Holidays in Ecuador and the Galapagos
Ecuador, named after its position on
the Equator, is fames for the Galapagos Islands archipelago
isolated far in the Pacific ocean and with a unique wildlife that
remains friendly to humans. The country boasts pristine Amazon
Rainforest, the high Andean mountains with stunning landscapes,
villages and busy local markets, a vibrant traditional culture and
the coastal lowlands.
Ecuador has its own section of the
legendary Amazon rainforest, home to hundreds species of mammals,
thousands of birds and insects, many endemic to Ecuador. Ancient
trees, some over 400 years old, tower above, entangled with thick
lianas and supporting a huge variety of bromeliads. Wildlife apart,
this is also a cultural experience, where we meet local communities
who share their intricate knowledge of their surrondings; the
medicinal propierties of plants and their unique relationship with
the jungle. There are a selection of Amazon Lodges and River Cruises
which will allow you to get deep into this unique ecosystem.
