Ecuador
Explore Ecuador

Ecuador is most famous for its Galapagos Islands. Indeed, we can provide you with cruises for almost any budget level that will allow you to experience the extreme biodiversity that this unique area offers.  There are also some beautiful areas off the coast for snorkeling and diving.  But mainland Ecuador has many other sites and experiences to offer as well.  Quito’s colonial district is quaint and charming, with its cobblestone streets.  Other points of interest include La Compania Church and the San Francisco Square, of which there is a delightful view from Panecillo Hill. Here, in the appropriately named country of Ecuador, is also where you can visit the Equatorial Monument and stand in both northern and southern hemispheres at the same time!
