Country of rainbow-hued colours

From the stunning turquoise lagoons nestled in the heart of the Andes Mountains, to the brilliant white sand beaches of the Pacific Ocean, Ecuador welcomes you in a blaze of colour.

Home to a wonderful array of wildlife, this is a nature lover’s dream destination. Watch a macaw’s rainbow-hued wings flutter amid the verdant Amazon, see iguanas scuttle across terracotta red sands and see the sun spark in orange as it sinks over the horizon. You’re sure to be mesmerised.

Why not hop over to the Galapagos Islands to extend your trip? See volcanic landscapes, meet some giant tortoises and dive among amazing marine life.

Flight Information

There are a number of carriers offering flights to Ecuador from the UK.

Direct Carriers: No airline flies directly from the UK to Ecuador.

Indirect Carriers British Airways, Iberia, American Airlines, LATAM, Avianca, KLM, Air France and Delta all offer indirect services to Ecuador.

Departure Taxes Both Quito and Guayaquil airports charges an international departure tax however this tax is already included in the cost of the flight.

Tipping

Tipping is not always expected in Ecuador, but tourists may be treated differently to locals in some places. Restaurants may add a 10% service charge onto your bill, plus a 14% tax so there should be little need to add further payment, unless the service you received was of an exceptional standard. In budget establishments simply rounding up to the nearest dollar will be sufficient. In hotels 50 cents per bag tip is adequate. As a general rule, try to negotiate the price of your taxi ride before you start your journey.

Health

Always consult with your GP 4-6 weeks prior to travel to check whether any preventative measures need to be taken. Ensure you have adequate medical and health insurance cover. Take insect repellent and try to avoid mosquito bites where possible that can lead to infections including Dengue Fever. 

Visa Information

British nationals do not need a visa to travel if the purpose of the visit is tourism.

Your passport should have two clear pages and be valid for at least 6 months prior to your arrival in Ecuador.

Currency

The currency of Ecuador is the United States Dollar. 

How to get your currency

It can be difficult to exchange UK pounds in Ecuador although many big cities will have Western Union offices. Make sure you change money before heading out of cities like Quito and Guayaquil or transferring to the Galapagos Islands.  Although credit cards are largely accepted you may find you pay higher fees. Traveller’s cheques are generally accepted in cities.
