Our Tips for Ecuador Holidays

There are no direct UK flights to Ecuador, but there are numerous indirect services from virtually all of the UK's major airports to locations all over Ecuador, from Lago Agrio in the north to Cuenca in the south. There is plenty of choice when planning your journey, but make sure you book your flights as early as possible to avoid letting the prices creep up. There is currently no need for UK citizens to acquire a visa before entering Ecuador for a stay of 90 days or fewer, but these things can change, so check before you travel just to be sure.

What to Do in Ecuador

No trip to Ecuador is complete unless you spend at least some of your holiday in Quito. The capital is littered with beautiful colonial buildings and brilliant restaurants, all in the heart of the Andes mountains. Ecuador is also one of the countries that houses the Amazon Rainforest, and the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve is probably the best place to see it from, with knowledgeable local guides who know exactly the places to go. Banos is also the perfect city for the extreme sports lover, you can mountain climb, bike and backpack across the beautiful terrain.
