What Our Clients say

Read our Ecuador´s reviews of our happy travelers

We had a great time on this trip. Everything was organized for us which took away the hassle when we had limited time. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the facilities were great.
Nick Virr
Very enjoyable trip! The lake and scenery were gorgeous. I did not do the descent, as I was feeling the effects of altitude, but the views from the rim trail were still spectacular. I also found the visit to the traditional house.
Susan Heller-Zeisler
It is a serious agency and dedicated to its clients. We planned our tour programs around Quito and a catamaran trip to the Galapagos Islands and communication was always fast and reliable.

Ecuador, also known as the country of the 4 worlds, is a small country compared to its South American neighbors; however, this fact is a great advantage for travel lovers in terms of time, due to the short distance between its wonderful tourist attractions.

What is the best month to visit Ecuador?

The quick answer is, “all year round!” Our country is located on the equator, and we have privileged weather. Temperatures don’t vary that much, so we can say any month of the year is a good time to visit Ecuador.

In general, in the Andes there are sunny mornings, windy afternoons and rainy nights. For the different types of weather, we recommend that you bring warm clothing. High temperatures can reach 26 °C, and low temperatures can reach 5 °C.

On the other hand, the Galapagos Islands have two seasons. From December to May, the warm and rainy season (31 °C – 21 °C), and from June to November, the cool and dry season (25 °C – 15 °C). In addition, if you are looking to see specific wildlife, we can recommend specific months and locations to increase your chances… For this and much more, we can say that the Galapagos never disappoints.

Last but not least, the Amazon rainforest also has two seasons: May to December: heavy rains; January to April: weaker rains. Throughout the year, average temperatures range from 28 °C maximum to 18 °C minimum.
