Where to go in Ecuador
List of regions
The Galápagos Islands lie more than 1,000km from mainland Ecuador but have a reputation and place in the history of science and evolution that far exceeds their small size.
Ecuador's El Oriente jungle region is beautifully unspoiled wilderness region of indigenous settlements dotted along various tributaries of the Amazon.
Explore Quito, a colonial gem set high in the Ecuadorian Andes. It's the perfect counterpoint to the highland region to the north, where colourful market towns are framed by towering volcanic peaks.
The western slopes of the Pichincha Volcano near Quito are covered in beautiful cloud forests, perfect for nature lovers wanting to indulge their sense of adventure.
To the south of Quito in the Central Highlands lies the ‘Avenue of Volcanoes'. Here an impressive spine of towering peaks lining the route south has created some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in Ecuador.
