Enjoy golden sands, turquoise beaches and abundant wildlife in a luxury Ecuador family vacation.
Ecuador is the perfect destination for a family trip. Its compact size, wealth of natural habitats, rich wildlife, history and small country charm make it an easy adventure for any family.
Let Jacada take you and your family there with all our care, superior service and established expertise; for an unforgettable trip to this enchanting and often overlooked country.
Stay at superb jungle lodges in the midst of the Amazon rainforest to explore the source of the mighty river to discovering its smallest creatures and vibrant birdlife. Spend your days exploring the quaint market towns and peaceful countryside of the Otavalo area, picking up handicrafts and staying at an authentic, working hacienda to see daily life here in depth. Soak up the colonial heritage of Quito and the magical biodiversity of its lesser known cloud forests. Match one or all of this with days cruising its Galapagos Island (or staying on one of the islands’ hotels).
