The Wonders of Ecuador

From the moment you step foot into your adventure, you’ll never look back

If you’re craving for authenticity, this is it. Meet the Kichwa people who have lived and thrived in the Amazon for generations—they’ll show you what life is like through their eyes, welcoming you into their homes and hearts. From inviting you to take part in cultural traditions such as a shamanic ceremony to teaching you the art of delicious Ecuadorian cooking, you’ll connect with them and like-minded travelers on a whole different level. Arrive to the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands with an open heart and leave with an opened mind.
