Ecuador travel programs
Destination Ecuador is the first boutique travel agency dedicated to celebrating ecotourism in Ecuador. Destination Ecuador operated by Tropic, a National Geographic World Legacy Award winner, is an ecotourism company specializing in responsible, community-based tourism through high-quality operations and exceptional service in Ecuador. Founded in 1994, guests of TropicEco visit the most spectacular natural areas of the country in the company of its native peoples, practicing the philosophy that one of the best ways of conserving an area – whether it be the Ecuador Amazon, the Galapagos Islands, the high Andes or a cloud forest – is to engage the participation of native, local people in creating the magic of an eco-vacation.
