Top 5 things to see and do in Ecuador

1. Cotopaxi

Ascend this unusual snow-peaked mountain and experience an active volcano at its most beautiful, as well as its importance to local culture. The national park is surrounded by forest, and an array of birdlife can be found here, including hawks.

2. The Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos islands are one of the most sought-after wildlife experience as they are home to animals that can be found nowhere else, such as the Flightless Cormorant, the Galapagos giant tortoise and marine iguanas.

3. The Amazon

The largest and most famed jungle in the world, the Amazon rainforest is an important part of the heart of Ecuador and you can find 200 different species of mammal here. However, there is a higher risk of malaria and yellow fever here, and so you should discuss medication with your doctor and take out comprehensive travel insurance.

This reserve is part of the national park system on Santa Cruz. Here is one of the best places to see a number of species in the wild, the most prominent of which is the Galapagos tortoise.

The Volcan Alcedo is a breath-taking example of a volcano, with steaming fumaroles and you can even extend your trip and camp near the summit.
