Here are 4 reasons why Ecuador should be part of your bucket list:

  • Diversity
  • Culture
  • Budget-friendly
  • Multiple things to do on short amount of time


   1. Diversity

The diversity in Ecuador is tremendous, and this alone should be reason enough to visit this beautiful country. Ecuador can be divided into four regions; the Andes, the Amazon, the pacific coast, and the Galapagos Islands. Due to the small size of the country, you can travel from beaches to mountains, to tropical forests within hours. Each region has something special to offer, and it is definitely worth a visit.  

The Andes, home of EcuaFina, in Ecuador is also known as the Sierra and the highlands and is one of the most visited regions in the country. The Andes provide a wide range of beautiful highland scenery all along, culinary experiences, handcrafted beauties, volcanoes, outdoor adventures and more. 

In the Ecuadorian Amazon, you will experience one of the most biodiverse places on the planet, with more than three million species living in the rainforest. This incredible place has remained partly untouched and gives you the opportunity to meet local tribes and cultures.

And finally, the Galapagos Islands is one of the most touristic regions in Ecuador. And it’s no wonder, with its unique wildlife and beautiful sandy beaches. Prepare to be close with marine iguanas and giant tortoises, while enjoying the stunning atmosphere of the islands.

The coast of Ecuador is a paradise for every traveller. The coast offers pristine sandy beaches and beautiful landscapes. If you are lucky, you might even spot a whale on the horizon along the coast. The coastline offers a variety of delicious food made with freshly caught fish that you can enjoy while looking at the stunning scenery. 

The beauty of the four regions and what amazing experiences they offer should be reason enough for you to include Ecuador on your bucket list but imagine winning a giveaway and having everything paid for!

   2. Vibrant Cultures 

Ecuador has a vibrant and distinct culture, which originates from its long and rich history. As a result, the culture includes a mix of indigenous people and European influence.

Our favourite reason why you should come to Ecuador is that in only 6 days you will fully discover what this country is about. You will need to spare a week for this trip. This week, you will get a Condor’s(the national eagle) look at what Ecuador is. The tour called 6 days Ecuador Multisport consists of visiting two different regions of Ecuador. It consists of travelling through the heights of the Andes, with its spectacular volcanoes, down into the lush Amazon Basin. This is the ideal combination for guests who enjoy adventures with a wide variety of activities. This Multisport Ecuador tour includes activities such as hiking into a crater lake, soaking in hot springs, canyoning in the jungle, paddling rapids in the Amazon, and hiking to glaciers.
