    • When to Go

      As Ecuador is located on the equator, the weather doesn’t vary much throughout the year. However, June through August is known to be the dry season.

    • Ideal Length of Stay

      7-10 days

    • Itinerary Highlights

      Exploring the old town of Quito, a colonial city set in an Andean valley; visiting the cloud forests that surround Mashpi Lodge; cruising around the Galápagos Islands.

    • Days 1-2

      Explore Quito, a city of churches, courtyards and beautifully intricate decoration including countless roses, whose growth and export represent a huge industry. Visit the special museums, shops, churches and performances while based at our favorite hotel.

    • Days 3-5

      Head to either the cloud forest for a stay filled with hiking, guided nature tours and bird-watching at Mashpi Lodge, or to a working farm and hacienda, Zuleta.
