    Ecuador

    Explore colonial cities and otherworldly cloud forests

    Ecuador is a very special destination and visitors always leave with a renewed appreciation of the brilliance of nature. With its fascinating Spanish colonial cities, spectacular Andean scenery, Amazonian rainforest and rich, indigenous culture, we consider it one of South America’s most exciting destinations.

    Some of the best jungle lodges in South America are located in the Ecuadorian Amazon and a stay here combines well with a few days in a family-run colonial hacienda in the Northern or Southern Sierras, where we have discovered some lovely, small lodges in areas with wonderfully few visitors.
