In an area slightly smaller than Nevada, Ecuador is the most bio-diverse nation per square kilometer in the world. Divided into Coast, Andes Mountains, and Jungle, Ecuador is also rich in culture and opportunities for adventure. We have a few for your below and are excited to provide more soon.
About the size of Nevada, Ecuador is the most bio-diverse nation per square kilometer in the world. Divided into Coast, Andes Mountains, and Jungle, Ecuador is rich in both culture and opportunities for adventure. Keteka’s Ecuador tours let you experience firsthand all that Ecuador has to offer. In the bustling capital of Quito, where markets, museums, and thermal springs are not to be missed, Keteka also provides tours that can take you to more remote locations like the Galapagos or Amazon. In Canoa, a coastal city, you can eat (and harvest) like a local on an organic farm. If Incan history and ruins are what you’re looking for, look no further than Cuenca, a town just south-east from Ecuador’s most populated city of Guayaquil. Calling all chocoholics – Ecuador is known for it’s chocolate and we have four tours devoted to just that in Guayas, Mindo, and Tena. No matter where you go, Keteka can help you make the most of your trip (and help you find chocolate).
From touring the Amazon or the Andes, Keteka has treks that will take your breath away (both literally and with the views). To recover, you can have an Ecuadorian farm to table meal complete with local organic farmers in Cuenca. For dessert, why not an artisanal Ecuadorian chocolate tour? Head to Tena for a day (or three) tour of chocolate. If wildlife is what you’re after, the Galapagos is known for it’s stunning array of wildlife not found in other areas. Sea lions, penguins, and turtles – oh my! To learn about indigenous culture, spend a day with the Kushi Waira people in Cuenca – we think it’s just a little more fun than learning in a museum. Wrap up your trip with a ride in the famous Quito Skyrail and hike up Pichincha Volcano.
Here at Keteka, we like to do things a little differently. In Ecuador, we give you the chance to learn about indigenous culture with both the Kushi Waira people and the Huaorani people in the Amazon. We connect you to locals by giving you an opportunity to work at an organic farm, learn from a local historian, do a cultural exchange, and go to a market with a local guide. Our tours allow you to immerse yourself into another country and culture – something that you won’t easily forget.
