Your vacation in Ecuador, the perfect holiday destination, will be an unforgettable experience with Exclusive Hotels & Haciendas of Ecuador.
Even though it is one of the smallest countries in South America, Ecuador is enormously wealthy in terms of biodiversity, history, culture and stunning landscapes.
From snow-capped, volcanic mountains and long stretches of unspoiled coastline to Amazon rainforests and the enchanted Galapagos Islands, Ecuador offers the visitor a breathtaking spectrum of natural wonders.
Nearly every region in the country is inhabited by a different indigenous community, from brightly-clad Indians in the Andean highlands, to the coastal montubios, to the hunter gatherers of the Amazon Basin who have lived there in harmony with nature for more than 10,000 years.
For the traveller, Ecuador offers a bottomless wealth of possibilities: from adrenaline sports such as white-water rafting, mountain climbing and cross-country biking, to less strenuous horseback rides among remote indigenous villages, birdwatching in cloudforests, hiking the highlands and trekking rainforest trails. More sedate still, wander through its colonial churches and towns, observe the unique wildlife of the Galapagos, enjoy its cuisine or sink into the lap of luxury at one of its country haciendas or long, deserted beaches.
As Charles Darwin wrote of the Galapagos Islands, which inspired his ground-breaking theory of evolution, Ecuador ‘seems to be a little world within itself.’ Little? Certainly. But, as the saying goes, small is beautiful.
