Enjoy golden sands, turquoise beaches and abundant wildlife in a luxury Ecuador family vacation.

Ecuador is perfect for family vacations. Compact in size, its varied landscapes, biodiversity, history and culture make it ideal for an adventure with children whatever their interests. Snorkel and hike on the Galapagos, raft in the Amazon Rainforest and horse ride at haciendas.

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, discover 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).

Browse the locations below for your perfect combination, or see our example trips, then talk to our team of Ecuador travel designers to start putting together your bespoke family trip.

Ecuadorians are incredibly friendly and warm, and family is at the heart of their culture. The many cultural, natural and wildlife attractions of this relatively small country make it perfect for those wanting to pack a lot into a short amount of time.
