Ecuador Eco Expedition 2023 (6 day)

Ocean Safari divers may be very familiar with Ecuador’s famous Galapagos islands, but the rest of Ecuador also offers many more adventures to visit and experience. One of 17 recognized megadiverse countries, Ecuador is rich in both the natural landscape and cultural heritage. Join us on a 6-day eco trip that takes our past experience and Ecuador trip operators’ expertise to present you with the heart of Ecuador. On this special trip, we will be exploring places such as the High Andes, Cloud Forest, the Amazon Rainforest, historical Inca cultural heritage sites, participating in high energy activities like whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and horseback riding, and relaxing in and around truly unique spots like live volcanoes and hot springs. We’ll be staying in haciendas and boutique hotels accompanied by a local bilingual professional tour guide as well as the trip leader to provide an unforgettable Ecuador experience.
