“We were very pleased with the service that we received from Explore Ecuador”


We just returned from our two week family trip to the Galapagos and Ecuadorian Rainforest arranged through Explore Ecuador.
The Galapagos was amazing – the animals are not afraid of being close to humans so the memories and pictures we have from the trip, both under and above water, are incredible. Everything on our boat, Anahi, was very comfortable and well organized – down to having a clear schedule each day for what we were going to do and see. Highlights of this part of the trip were swimming with seal lions, turtles and sharks as well as observing the blue footed boobies doing their mating dance.

Our lodge in the rainforest, on a lake linked to a small tributary of the Napo River, was lovely – with wonderful large rooms and excellent meals. La Selva Lodge is in the middle of the jungle so animals were visible everywhere – from the unique 7 species of monkeys to colorful parrots and pink river dolphins. We were very pleased with the service that we received from Explore Ecuador. The team was always quick at answering our questions and providing suggestions. We were met at Quito Airport by Tom who made us feel at ease and answered any last questions. All transfers and connections were seamlessly arranged and worked perfectly. We had one member of our party who was vegetarian and their meals were always well-prepared and delicious. The layover stays at the Quito Polo Club between the sections of our trip were an excellent recommendation – helping us recharge before the next adventure.

We would definitely recommend Explore Ecuador for vacations in Ecuador.

Indian woman from SalasacasIn South America, Ecuador is one of the smaller countries, but the country is hugely diverse in terms of geography, climate and population. You can visit the Andes, the Amazon rainforest as well as the tropical coast without taking extremely long domestic flights or transfers. And then you have the Galapagos Islands, a once in a lifetime experience. The diversity of flora and fauna per square mile is enormous. Ecuador is South America in a nutshell. Moreover, the country is relatively safe and little visited. The national currency is the USD and you have a wide choice of direct flights to Quito and Guayaquil from Europe and the United States.
