Best things to do and see in Ecuador

What popular events take place in Ecuador?

There are many popular festivals throughout the year that highlight Ecuador's diverse and vibrant culture. The year begins with the "Diablada" or Devil's Party from 1st - 6th January in the town of Pillaro. The festival consists of masked parades, dances, art exhibitions and musical performances that supposedly originated when indigenous people would dress up as devils to reject the oppression of Spanish colonists. Ecuadorian carnival takes place in February and features a programme of colourful parades with elaborate costumes and dancing. If you can find Ecuador flight deals around this time, we recommend visiting the capital city of Quito to see the biggest carnival celebrations. Originally a religious festival of the Inca Empire, IntiRaymi is held in June to honour the Sun God and celebrate the summer solstice. Communities choose their own Sun Princess, perform folkloric dances and rituals, and enjoy harvest feasts together. Ecuadorian Independence Day is celebrated on the 24th of May, when people commemorate the Battle of Pichincha with parades and parties around the country.

Is Ecuador known for specific food/cuisine?

Food in Ecuador represents the country's diverse cultural and historical heritage. Ecuadorian cuisine varies throughout the country according to different agricultural conditions and different native ingredients. In coastal regions, people commonly eat dishes of beef, chicken and seafood served with rice, lentils or plantain. While in mountainous regions, people commonly eat pork, chicken, beef and cuy (guinea pig) with rice or potatoes. Soups are often eaten as a first course before any meal and food is often seasoned with aji, a spicy hot sauce. Typical crops grown in the Andean mountains include quinoa and corn. At lower altitudes, there may be a wider variety of fresh fruits and vegetables available, such as passion fruit, bananas, chirimoya and naranjilla. You will likely come across many street vendors selling empanadas, stuffed corn pasties that can be either sweet or savoury and either baked or fried. Some typical dishes in Ecuador include goat stew, tamales, ceviche and roast pork with fried potato pancakes. Traditional Ecuadorian drinks include Canelazo, a hot drink made in the highlands from sugar cane alcohol and warming spices like cinnamon and cloves.

What can you see and do in Ecuador?

The South American country of Ecuador sits on the equator with a diverse landscape encompassing the Amazon jungle, Andean highlands, and tropical coastline. The nation also includes the Galapagos islands in the Pacific ocean, which are famous for their biodiversity. If you take a trip out to the islands you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the many different species such as sea lions, marine iguanas, tortoises and even penguins. With such diverse natural landscapes on offer, travellers to Ecuador can explore rainforests, volcanoes, waterfalls and mountains. Most visitors will start their journey in the country's capital, Quito, which gives an insight into Ecuador's colonial past. Explore the cobbled streets of the Old Town, take a cable car up the side of the Pichincha Volcano for panoramic views of the world's 2nd highest city, and visit museums such as the National Museum of Ecuador and the Contemporary Art Centre.

What passport or visa requirements are there when visiting Ecuador?

Before you book flights to Ecuador, make sure that your passport is valid for at least six months from your intended date of arrival. British citizens do not need a visa to travel to Ecuador on trips up to 90 days per year, but will need to apply for a visa if they wish to stay for a longer period or are planning to work or study in the country.
