Ecuador may be a tiny country, but its geographical diversity is staggering and changes dramatically from its eastern to western borders. Its bio-diverse Amazon rain-forest is alive with swooping scarlet macaws and spider monkeys bouncing off virgin canopy’s. Up in the culturally rich highland area, colorful Indian markets, smoking volcanoes and striking colonial towns are in abundance. The Andes then slip way to the lush coastal area. Far out in the Pacific Ocean lies the submerged volcanic peaks of the Galapagos Islands, a sanctuary for unique wildlife.
Ecuador can be visited year-round, and the weather in the highlands varies little, Jun-Sep(and Dec) being the driest months. The Amazon is always hot and humid(25°c) and rainfall frequent. Jan-may is hot and wet in the Galapagos (24-28°c) where you can expect short, sharp showers; temperatures cool to 18-20°c between Jun-Dec and strong winds during Aug-Sept can me the waters choppy ( some boats may in dry-dock).
Thank you Nick and all the rest of the team at Gazelle for a fantastic 50th birthday surprise for Sarah in Dubai. An excellent hotel with great service and you had clearly told them to look after us, which was very special.
We did not think you could match it but you did it again and more! 25th wedding anniversary this time and it was an amazing experience in the Golden Triangle. From the Taj Mahal to whitewater rafting in Sri Lanka, the organisation was incredible, hotels were great and staff fantastic which made our trip one we will never forget. Thank you
Just a note to say a huge thank you for arranging such a brilliant trip.Everything went so smoothly and your assistance all the way went above and beyond.
