  • What to bring?

    What is the minimum age to travel with us?

    Our younger travelers are not under 8 years old. This was thought for the comfort of our customers and guides and for the safety of younger kids since some trips could be too risky for small children and toddlers.

    What's the currency here?

    We use US American Dollars as currency in Ecuador.

    What Travel Insurance do you recommend?

    We recommend World Nomads Insurance since it has a coverage of USD $200 000

    What’s the weather like?

    Seasons in Ecuador have nothing to do with temperature – instead there is a dry season and a wet season. In Ecuador, the winter season is hot and wet, and the summer is dry and cold. Ecuador’s dry, summer season falls between May and December. January to April is Ecuador’s wet wintertime. There is not much of a transition between the seasons.

    Most of Ecuador has mild temperatures year-round. In the highlands of the Andes, the temperatures are usually cooler and depend of the altitude mainly, the higher the colder, The average temperature in Quito is in the mid-60s Fahrenheit (17 – 18 degrees Celsius). But the average temperature by the snow-cover volcanos can be mid-50s Fahrenheit (10 – 13 degrees Celsius).

    What Do I Do about drinking water?

    The tap water in Ecuador is not always friendly on the stomach for those who haven’t been in Latin America for a while. There is purified water in each of the accommodation which you can use to fill up each morning, so be sure to pack a reusable water bottle or two. There will also be water in the transportation.

    How much should I tip?

    Tips are not included in the trip cost. These are entirely at your discretion but there is an expectation to tip for good service. Your guide will help with advice; however, we suggest the below as a guideline per person:

    Guides: USD 10- USD 15 per day

    Of course, you are free to tip more or less, and the amount should be reflective of your perception of service and quality - a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service
