Ecuador tailored tours for a honeymoon in the country can cover a lot of ground. An Ecuadorian highlights trip might include time in the Galapagos Islands, an Otavalo tour where you visit the largest market in South America, and finding time to explore the jungle. Keep reading for some of the ways that we can help you plan a great trip that includes the Galapagos Islands, the jungle and everything in between.
The Galapagos Islands
On a Galapagos Island luxury cruise, you are treated to the best of both worlds. The natural beauty and grandeur of the environment are balanced by top-notch amenities, world-class service, and journeys that take you far away from the ordinary. Boats like the Beluga yacht are perfectly suited for an incredible Galapagos island yacht cruise, taking you to islands where the wildlife leaps out of the blue, tropical beaches lend themselves to leisurely strolls and sunsets are epic events.
Galapagos vacations on honeymoon trips are times to bring back the wonder and amazement of life. These are journeys that inspire-creating moments that last long after the trips are over.
An Amazon rainforest trip is an Ecuador tour that shows off the depth of the natural landscapes of the country. Wide open spaces, long swaths of a river, romantic lodges on the edge of a lush green forest, and fun days of exploring under the canopy invigorate and inspire. River trips on the Mantanee cruise or stays at the Napo Wildlife Center are both an Ecuador culture trip and an experience that reconnects you with the natural world. Not unlike the Galapagos, the animals in the Oriente are creatures that don’t disappoint. Trips find you traveling deep into a primary forest, taking you back to a time where the journey and the destinations are equally as stunning.
Ecuador tailored tours from Quito give you time to explore between different legs of your trip. Otavalo tours take you to the highlands, trips to Cotopaxi put you at the base of one of the country’s most visited volcanoes, and Ecuador relaxation tours to the spa towns of Papallacta or Banos are great ways to unwind and enjoy the outdoors before heading off on a new adventure. A Quilotoa tour finds you in parts of the mountains where distant hamlets, crater lakes, and rural villages are great places to find private moments in friendly surroundings.
An Ecuador culture trip that includes a Quito tour brings the vibrant history and up and coming art, music, and dining scene to the forefront. The historic center’s plazas, opulent churches, and cobblestone streets are matched by green spaces, gondola rides, and markets where handicrafts and textiles are stacked high.
For those who want an immersive experience in Quito, Happy Gringo Travel can arrange stays in the historic center at the Illa Experience Hotel. The establishment’s amenities include one of the best restaurants in the city and there are daily tours that take you to local weavers, confectionaries, and art museums where you can try your hand at watercolor painting.
The city of Cuenca’s colonial charm is often outmatched by the many places to explore just outside its borders. The Inca ruins at Ingapirca are one of Ecuador’s best-kept secrets, a fortress sitting on a hillside that has been a lookout for people that date back to when hunters and gathers were roaming the land. Our tours combine time spent in the city, and days delving into the rich history of the country.
Other ideas for an Ecuadorian highlights trip are horse riding tours, active days exploring by bicycle, or exploring by train through lavish landscapes that change by the minute. All of these destinations can be considered for a great experience during a Honeymoon in Ecuador.
