Top 10 reasons to travel Ecuador
 
Unmatched diversity:

Ecuador spans four vastly different worlds. From the endless reaches of the Amazon, to the breathtaking beauty of the Andes, to the pristine stretches of the Coast and the legendary Galapagos Islands – each region boasts a unique landscape, ecosystem and culture. Nowhere else on earth can visitors experience such extreme diversity in one country. And because Ecuador is only the size of Nevada, it’s possible to see it all in just one trip!

Home to the Galapagos Islands & Unesco World Heritage Sites:

Ecuador is home to the Galapagos Islands and is the number one, most biodiverse country per square mile in the world. Ecuador counts some 50 different ecosystems, several of which are considered Biodiversity Hotspots by Conservation International and have been named UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Endless array of adventures:

Only in Ecuador can a traveler climb the tallest active volcano in the world, kayak the rapids of the Amazon rainforest, crisscross the Equatorial line on horseback, surf tropical Pacific swells along a Pre-Incan archeological site, and swim with penguins, marine iguanas, sea lions and harmless whale sharks – all in one trip!

Authentic cultural experiences:

Some 27 different ethnic groups, each blessed with a rich cultural heritage, co-exist peacefully in Ecuador. Many, especially in the Andean highlands and the Amazon rainforest, have had limited contact with modern civilization and still live much the same way their ancestors did hundreds of years ago. Ecuadorians are proud of their culture, passionate about conserving their way of life and keen to sharing their traditions and rituals with foreigners. Perhaps most rewarding for a visitor, is the opportunity to be a participant, rather than just an observer.

An example in sustainable tourism:

Ecuador has made conservation and responsible tourism development a priority. The country is taking aggressive steps to establish a sustainable tourism infrastructure that will ensure its unique ecosystems are carefully monitored to preserve their natural abundance. By visiting Ecuador, travelers contribute to the local economy and participate in Ecuador’s mission to become a leader in sustainable tourism.

Something for everyone: Ecuador is one of the most versatile destinations on the planet, with plenty to offer to just about any type of traveler. From adventure seekers and Eco-tourists, culture and history aficionados, inquisitive families and active honeymooners, to watersports enthusiasts, incentive travelers, and visitors looking to learn Spanish, itineraries catering to their interests are easy to arrange.

Easy to travel:

A choice of US and international carriers offering daily flights from both the East and West Coast of the US, a short 4- to 6-hour flight from Miami and New York, a Dollar-based economy, conveniently located international airports, a reliable transportation system, a wide range of accommodations and English readily spoken in the major cities and tourist areas make travel to Ecuador effortless.

Safe and friendly:

Ecuadorians are honest, warm and service-oriented people who truly enjoy welcoming foreign visitors to their country. Their friendly nature makes travelers feel safe and well looked after, as they are treated like guests rather than tourists.

Eternal spring-like weather:

Residing on the Equator has its advantages! Ecuador enjoys mild spring-like weather conditions year-round, creating an ideal environment for the country’s rich fauna and flora to flourish and its people to enjoy a laid-back lifestyle. More importantly, this makes Ecuador an ideal place to visit any time of the year and an easy trip to pack for!

Off the beaten path: Ecuador is an “up and coming” destination among international travelers “in the know”. Free from mass tourism, the country is a haven for travelers looking to discover something new and different. And if that doesn’t raise a few eyebrows and impress the boss, one can always mention bragging rights one through nine!
