Ecuador

Welcome to Ecuador, the country that began our love affair with South America, and the place the we long to return to  year after year.

A small country in the Northwest corner of  South America with big appeal!  Why?  Its people, its beauty, its rich diverse eco systems, World Heritage sites, Colonial cities, beaches & mountains & rain forests & Amazon & Galapagos to name but a few.

Bordered by Colombia to the north, Peru to the east and the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west, and includes the Pacific archipelago of the Galapagos Islands. The Ecuadoran mainland is divided into three main physical regions: the Costa (coastal region), the Sierra (highland region), and the Oriente (eastern region).

Much of what is now Ecuador came to be included in the Inca empire, the largest political unit of pre-Columbian America, and still has a thriving indigenous cultures today.  First time visitors can't help but come away with a new understanding and appreciation for other cultures and the beauty of this planet.

We are super excited to introduce our Northern Ecuador Andes Tour, if this project never grows beyond sharing a little bit of this amazing place with a few loving souls, we are still grateful.  We are busy making final plans, as you can imagine there are lots of details that need to be worked out, and WE WILL ANNOUNCE WHEN TOURS ARE AVAILABLE VIA EMAIL LIST.
