Ecuador and Galapagos Islands holidays will not fail to impress even the most well travelled; and this region has incredible riches, and influence and reputation far beyond its physical size.

Natural beauties range from the world's deepest and densest rainforest in the east, across mountain landscapes patch-worked into tiny fields by indigenous Indians, over the world's second-highest volcano and skim Pacific waters to Darwin's 'Natural Laboratory' of the Galapagos.
