Ecuador Travel FAQs

Thinking about an Ecuador trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests. Visit our Ecuador Vacation Planning page for in-depth Ecuador travel tips.

When is the best time to visit Ecuador?

The best time to visit Ecuador is in April or May when the rainy season has come to an end. At this time, the Galapagos Islands are fantastic to visit as the waters will still be warm for snorkeling and swimming, and wildlife watching is at its finest.

Though, in general, the Galapagos Islands and the Ecuadorian Amazon are pleasant places to visit year-round. However, specific times could be better for visitation, depending on what you’d like to see in the region. For instance, from June – December the Amazon experiences dryer weather, which is optimal for land-based excursions like hiking and wildlife spotting. Whereas, cruise and water exploration enthusiasts will prefer the wet season, where river travel is most serene.

Is it safe to travel in Ecuador?

It is safe to travel to Ecuador, but expect pickpockets in busy places like downtown Quito. Protests can take place from time to time and should be avoided.

Do you need a visa to travel to Ecuador?

You might need a Visa for traveling to Ecuador. In any case, you must have a passport! Whether you need a passport depends on the passport you are using when entering the country. Please enquire at the Ecuadorian consulate in your country!

What is Ecuador famous for?

Ecuador is famous for many things! While some may not even realize that the Galapagos Islands are a part of Ecuador, others know of the country because of that single destination! The golden sands, turquoise blue water, and abundant wildlife bring thousands of travelers to Ecuador every year. Another area that Ecuador is famous for is its section of the Amazon Rainforest. The Ecuadorian Amazon is vastly diverse and is perfect for those looking for a luxury Amazon cruise. You might have also heard about Ecuador because of its high-altitude city, Quito. Quito is nestled 9,350 ft above sea level and offers guests delicious food, colonial architecture, and buzzing nightlife!

Ecuador is also famous for Cotopaxi Volcano, the Devil’s Nose train, Cuenca, Banos, and the Ingapirca Ruins.

Where are the Galapagos Islands?

West of South America, you’ll find the Galapagos Islands floating in the blue Pacific Ocean. The archipelago consists of 19 fascinating islands and dozens of islets, which can make it challenging to discern which Galapagos Islands are the best to visit. We’re here to assure you; they are all great. Free-roaming wildlife makes for a unique travel experience. With its nearby location, don’t forget to include the Galapagos to your Ecuador itinerary.

What are the best activities in Ecuador?

From city touring to mountain bike riding to wildlife spotting to jungle trail trekking, Ecuador has an activity worthy of any traveler’s itinerary. Figure out what you’re most interested in and then let an expert in Ecuador travel find the best trip to Ecuador for you to base your trip around.

What vaccines do I need to travel to Ecuador?

Every traveler wants to do the best they can to stay healthy while traveling. We highly recommend that you check with your local travel clinic, primary doctor, or the World Health Organization about vaccinations for specific regions in Ecuador, like the Ecuadorian Amazon. You may also consider reading about some remedies for altitude sickness, especially when traveling to high-altitude cities like Quito.
