Ecuador is the land of four worlds and as most tourists can attest, it is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. In the reserves and national parks you can find a great variety of flora and fauna, a paradise for nature lovers! But the country is not only characterized by its natural wealth, also its cities show a magnificent colonial and baroque art that attracts lovers of history and culture. And what to say about Ecuadorian gastronomy? – Each region has its own dishes that will delight your palate.
It is true that Ecuador, like most countries around the world, has its negative aspects such as crime, but if you take the necessary precautions as an experienced tourist, the risk is already greatly reduced. It is advisable to contact an experienced travel agency that will plan the trip according to your preferences and assist you in all eventualities. A trip planned with a travel agency will provide you with a professional tour guide, a vehicle optimally equipped according to European standards for excursions and legally operating hotels with all the services you wish for. In addition, most of them are certified for their sustainable practices and safety. All these are important factors that will provide you not only a safer trip, but also all the extras so that your travel dreams come true and you take home the best memories of Ecuador. Your tour guide will make your trip as pleasant and safe as possible.
The different tourist sites are usually safe and you, as a traveler, will receive the necessary recommendations from your travel agency, tour operator and guide to avoid any kind of risk.

And thanks to our assistance, your trip will be calm and safe at all times and you will feel comfortable in a familiar environment.
As an added precaution, it is best not to walk the city streets that are unfamiliar to you at night, not to display flashy, valuable items, and not to use non-certified transportation. It is best to stay among the locals as much as possible to avoid attracting unwanted attention. ATMs are available in larger cities, but not in rural or remote areas, so you should carry enough cash with you; however, not too much to avoid major financial damage in the event of a robbery.
Ecuador’s air borders are currently open to visitors from all over the world, and for a stay no longer than 90 days, no visa is even required. You only need to meet the formal requirements to enter the country. Enjoy Ecuador’s sustainable tourism, which is a priority for both government authorities and Ecuadorians, so as a tourist you can also contribute to the local economy and the growth of ecotourism projects.
