Ecuador Travel guide

Ecuador, a tiny yet versatile country of South America is located on the equator that’s why the name Ecuador. It is said that the weather here can change thrice a day and varies from region to region. The country is divided into three parts; mainly that consists of Costa- a beach destination with lively crowd perfect for surfing and soaking the sun; Sierra- for those travellers who love ice and winter. The snow-clad Andrean Mountains, tropical lands and history preserving colonial region will make you feel surreal. Lastly, if you want to explore the wild life, Galapagos Islands, the birthplace of Theory of Evolution is the region you must explore. The best part is that there is no need to apply for Ecuador visa for Indians. Read more

  • Bordered by Peru from East and South, the Pacific Ocean on West, and sharing a border with Columbia on West, the best thing about The Republic of Ecuador is that there are not many climatic variations. Travellers need not apply for Ecuador visa online and get visa on entry but start prepping four months in advance according to the school or year-end holidays. Quito, the largest city and capital of the country along with highlands have warm and dry weather with light occasional drizzling. Amazon area is humid and wet throughout the year but wetter from April- June. As it is located on the equator, one can visit the country anytime throughout the year and enjoy the rich culture and wildlife.
  • The official language of the country is Spanish, but travellers can manage with English as people in major cities and tourists’ attractions can understand and speak English. You should remember common words in Spanish, but the language is not a major barrier. While exploring the country, it is advisable to not visit Esmeraldas province and 20km from the border of Columbia as there have been bombings and attacks in the region. It comes under the army, but it is advised not to visit it. Ecuador is a country with high seismic activity, thus it is important to ask questions on the current situation while seeking Ecuador visa information as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are possible. Recently, there has been an increase in petty robbery and kidnapping in the country, so vigilance is necessary. Avoid going out after dark.
  • Now, if you have understood the Ecuador visa requirements from Akbar Travel agents then you need to know about travelling and commuting within the country to make the most of your vacation. The country has two major international airports namely Quito and Aeropuerto Simon Bolivar. To save time, opt for flights for inter-city travel and the country’s main flight is Tame. While in the country, the cheap and best way of transportation is via bus or taxi on Panamericana Highway. Hire a taxi for the whole day and explore the region. There are many personal car-hire agencies in the country, but you need to book in advance. Biking is a popular yet exhilarating way of sightseeing, but avoid coast hopping as it can be dangerous.
  • What to see in Ecuador?

    If climbing gives you a high, then climbing the world-renowned highest peak of Cotopaxi is the best way to start your excursion. It has the world’s highest volcano. While on the subject of volcanoes, Tungurahua volcano in Banos is the restricted and ever erupting volcano. The mountain spewing lava is the sight to watch at night, and you can also enjoy thermal baths while in the region. The beauty of Quito, the colonial town and capital of the country cannot be missed. On one hand, it preserves the heritage with 16th century churches that hold religious art sacred and on the other hand the vibrant nightlife, buzzing bars and plazas are perfect for a night out.
  • The majestic Andes with beautiful villages, Gregory rivulets and grasslands will paint a sublime backdrop. A perfect place for biking, horse riding, and romantic picnics with your partner in colourful wooden huts or on a farm will give you an amazing experience of life in the countryside. Galapagos Islands have to be part of your itinerary, as here you will witness the wildlife in its full bloom. The marine Iguanas, enormous tortoises, sea-lions, and diverse species of birds will blow your mind away. The Amazon is known for its wildlife that will make your trip to Ecuador complete.
  • Ecuador cuisine is also as diverse as its climate and you can enjoy the gourmet dinner at highlands that include Cuy- roasted pig, locro, and avocados. The seafood of the Costa is incomparable, but the food is not too spicy. While biding adieu to Ecuador, don’t forget to buy souvenirs from Plaza de Ponchos, Ferias of Otavalo, and Silver stores in the capital where you can shop for Panama Hats, marzipan, silver jewellery, and much more.
