ABOUT US

For more than 20 years we have traveled to all corners of Ecuador, while also traveling the world. We have dedicated our lives to promoting responsible tourism and bringing visitors from all over the planet to our beautiful country. Since 1994 we have developed unique lodges, created operations in unique natural areas and designed tailor-made trips for thousands of foreign travelers. Through our innovation and passion for showing Ecuador to the world, we have received international accolades and recognition. Our development of sustainable tourism experiences with local communities in the Amazon, Andes, Pacific Coast and our beloved Galapagos Islands have enriched travelers’ lives as well as the lives of our local citizens. We strongly believe in the power that tourism has to generate income in a way that respects the environment, supports the local economy and enhances the cultural and natural wealth of our local communities.

Our greatest successes at Destination Ecuador have always been showing guests Ecuador as it is – sharing our unique cultures, visiting remote, undiscovered places, taking the time to enjoy sunrises in the wonderful Andean snow-capped mountains, savoring twilights in the Amazon and exploring the amazing underwater world of our enchanted islands in Galapagos – always in the company of the local communities that act as guardians of our heritage.
