Join us on an express group trip through Ecuador, where you’ll hit the highlights of cities of Quito, Tena, & Papallacta, and still have leisure time to do some exploring of your own. Your epic journey will start in Quito where you’ll have time to explore a city founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city, get acquainted with this lively city’s priceless historical treasures of art & architecture, and enjoy your first taste of Ecuadorian food at world-class restaurants and cafes. Before heading to the Amazon region, you’ll visit the “Middle of the World” monument at the Equator that marks latitude 0º.
In the Amazon region, you’ll enjoy a motorized canoe ride to your lodging overlooking the river, experience the world’s largest ecosystem, take a night tour in the jungle that introduces you to the wonders and serenity of the Amazon, and visit a local Quechua family to learn about their customs and everyday Amazonian life.
After that travel to the small town of Papallacta, tucked away in the Andes Mountains. Here you’ll relax and unwind in one of Papallacta’s legendary hot springs and enjoy a traditional Ecuadorian dinner.
