What's included in this trip
Ecuador on a shoestring SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Quito is a cultured city with a wonderous Old Town, a dynamic nightlife and atmospheric streets showcasing Ecuadorian life in all its splendour.
The two rivers of Tena and Pano meet in Tena, a small, lively city and a gateway to the amazing Amazon Jungle.
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.
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 colored handwoven fabrics, ornate wooden carvings and original Panama hats.
