Ecuador Family Tours

Some people may be nervous about traveling to Ecuador with their entire family because of perceived security risks or a report of political instability in Ecuador. That’s understandable, but the reality is that there are already millions of children and senior citizens who have traveled here and even have lived in Ecuador all of their lives who have never had problems. If you’re concerned about taking your children, parents or other family members, it may be a good idea to take a tour with a well-established tour operator who specializes in family travel. Below are some such tour operators:

Adventure Life – specializes in family trips to the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador in addition to family-friendly destinations across Latin America, such as Machu Picchu, Peru.

Columbus Travel – is a highly recommended agency based out of Quito with an excellent reputation for planning family trips and vacations to Ecuador since the 1990’s. They’ll help you choose a family-friendly boat in the Galapagos or a lodge in the Amazon such as La Selva.

Guacamayo Tours and Rio Muchacho – Certified Ecotourism – based outside of the beautiful and sunny Bahía de Caraquez, Guayamaco uses funds generated by tourism to fund a variety of socio-ecological projects – an organic farm, a recycling plant, the world’s first organic shrimp farm, and much more. Dedicated to ethical, environmentally responsible tourism, Guayamaco offers a variety of tours, specializing in birding, horseback riding, whale-watching, and agro-ecological tours of all kinds. Although Guacamayo offers birding tours throughout the country, their most memorable tours are in the estuaries, islands, mangroves, and tropical dry forests that make up their own backyard.
