Ecuador Holidays

Lying along the equator, Ecuador is one of South America’s smallest nations. From its charming colonial cities to its wildlife-filled jungles, Ecuador holidays are always memorable. 


Things to Do in Ecuador

  • Spend a day or two touring Quito. Photograph the splendid colonial architecture, browse the colourful markets, and visit the Museo del Banco Central to check out the pre-Columbian gold artefacts.
  • Get out of the city. North of Quito lies Otavalo, a small town with a big market; while to the east are the Papallacta thermal baths; and south lies the Cotopaxi Volcano; all of which are great day trips.
  • Stay in a jungle lodge in the Amazon Rainforest. Ecuador’s Orient (east) is smothered in rainforest and home to an abundant wildlife, a rainbow of birdlife, and a few indigenous tribes.
  • Cruise the Galapagos Islands. Discover where Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution and meet the charming wildlife that once fascinated him.


Best Time to Visit

Jun-Sep: If you are planning on sticking to the mainland, this would be the warmest and driest time of year. That said, Ecuador is definitely a year-round destination, as temperatures remain  23°C all year in most parts of the country. It gets pretty busy during these months but you shouldn't have a problem organising your Ecuador holiday if you book early.

Ecuador’s rainforest is best visited from September to March. While Quito, Cuenca and the Andes are all ideal from May to September. The Galapagos Islands are great all year round. 

Visit the 24th of September for the Mama Negra Fiesta in Latacungo. An exciting festival featuring marching bands, elaborate costumes, black face paint, and very strong alcohol, Mama Negro is not to be missed!

Take a trip to Cuenca on November 3rd to celebrate Ecuador’s Independence Day. Watch this beautiful city become awash with parades, fireworks, and festivities for a whole three days.
