We Journeyed Together—Ecuador Bound

10 Day Ecuador Itinerary

It's the first time in a while that our whole family got to experience new things and nature together. We’re blown away by what Ecuador has to offer.

Why is Ecuador our dream destination?

From the city of Quito to the islands in the Galapagos Archipelago, we were amazed by the different landscapes and natural beauty of these Ecuador destinations. We went up to Cotopaxi National Park, which is one of the tallest active volcanoes in the world. The gondola ride up to the volcano was fantastic. Too bad the clouds kept us from seeing the peak, but it was an amazing experience nevertheless.

The Galapagos Islands have so much to offer...

At Santa Fe, sea lions are everywhere, and not afraid of people. This is an excellent place to spend 2 days in. We also enjoyed our stay at Tortuga Bay. The beach is beautiful and you can even see baby sharks in the water and tons of marine iguanas.

We’ll always remember this trip because...

Quito is great. The staff at Barnard Hotel here goes above and beyond to help. They let us check out late and kept the room when my daughter was sick on the last day. We really appreciated their kindness and the people that helped us along the way.
