About Ecuador , Peru

Ecuador on a shoestring Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Quito

Quito is a cultured city with a wonderous Old Town, a dynamic nightlife and atmospheric streets showcasing Ecuadorian life in all its splendour.

Days 2-3 Amazon Jungle

The two rivers of Tena and Pano meet in Tena, a small, lively city and a gateway to the amazing Amazon Jungle.

Days 4-5 Banos

Go on a hike in the hills, raft whitewater rapids or saddle up for a gallop through the lush forests of Banos. Then soak those weary bones in the town's hot springs and check out some traditional Ecuadorian music at an atmospheric local bar.

Days 6-8 Quito/Otavalo market

Return to Quito for a jaunt out to the famous Otavalo market. Although relatively small in size, this is one of the most enthralling traditional markets in all of the Americas, and it's a great place to stock up on gorgeously coloured handwoven fabrics, ornate wooden carvings and original Panama hats.
