Ecuador Off The Beaten Track

Ecuador's off the beaten path destinations are as authentic as it gets. If you don't go on holiday to spend your entire trip with other traveller's, then you'll be pleased to explore these lesser-known, and somewhat remote, parts of the country. Here, you'll have the opportunity to experience daily life in Ecuador, and practice your Spanish whilst you get acquainted with the locals.

Exploring Ecuador off the beaten track may have you staying in accommodations that are decidedly more basic than in other parts of the country. However, what is lacking in amenities will be more than made up for when you're in the midst of dense rainforests, desolate beaches, and vibrant communities. Tena is a great place to do some kayaking and learn about indigenous communities. Bahía de Caráquez is an excellent destination if you’re an eco-conscious traveller seeking a different experience from the Galápagos Islands.

To experience Ecuador's unique places, you can't go where everyone else goes, but you already know that — that's why your next vacation is taking you to Ecuador.
