Andes to Amazon

This was a tremendously varied trip in so many ways - we went from high altitudes in the Andes to sea level, we wore many layers of clothing in the Andes to as little as possible at sea level, we covered up because of mosquitoes in the humidity of the jungle. The people were always friendly - we really enjoyed helping farm in the indigenous community of San Clemente where we learned. among other things, how to yoke oxen and plough fields and were then served an enormous home grown lunch (we had to lie flat out on the lawn to digest!). We saw waterfalls, volcanos, alpacas, vicunas, watched an amazing game of 'national ball' in a town square, stayed at beautiful haciendas and interesting Ecuadorian hotels.

A very busy trip around Ecuador in September/October, range of experiences and places visited, with some good quality accommodation throughout. It goes from the highs of Quito to the depths of the rain forest, up to mountains and back to sea level

Land of Vast Contrasts

Walking through the rainforest one day and 4800m above sea level the next - Ecuador really is a land of huge contrasts providing a fortnight of amazing sights and experiences. As well as your travel essentials, take an open mind and enjoy!

Small country packs a punch!

5
For a small country Ecuador offers so much, mountains, rainforest jungle, coastal plains, cultural, wildlife and fantastic scenery. It often seems that people overlook Ecuador in favour of the more showy blousy delights of Brazil or the world famous sites of Peru and just stay for a couple of days on their way to Galapagos, well that is a real shame as they are missing a load. I would quite happily go back and do this trip over again.

ANDES TO AMAZON

5
Such a wonderful country, full of variety.  As our leader said "Four worlds in one country".  You get to experience so many different environments; jungle, highlands, mountains and coast.  The jungle was an incredible experience, meeting indigenous people, exploring the jungle at night time and experiencing a Shaman ceremony was great. The mountains were awe-inspiring - being above the clouds and experiencing altitude for the very first time was not only interesting but something I will never forget. Highlands beautiful, especially the beautiful hacienda in Banos. And not forgetting the coastal part, where we saw dolphins and thousands of Frigate birds - Amazing!

Fantastic trip! Ecuador is amazing with so much to see - mountain, rainforest, cloudforest, coastal plain, varied paramo. There are beautiful people, colourful markets, colonial cities, and interesting wilds like jungles or mountain national parks.
