Follow this simple process to plan your trip to Ecuador.

1) Check to see if you need a visa to enter Ecuador. Citizens of practically every country in the world can simply arrive at the airport or border and get an automatic 90 day tourist visa, but read about the details before you go. You can contact your Ecuadorian Embassy or Consulate for more information.

2)  Find an economical flight to Ecuador. The vast majority of travelers fly into Quito (airport code UIO), but one can fly into Guayaquil (GYE) especially if you’re only planning on going to the Galapagos Islands.

3) Educate yourself about health issues and immunizations.

4) Plan your trip! Ecuador Explorer has lots of great resources to help you find the best hotelstoursbooks and most anything else you’ll need for your trip planning.

5) Pack your bags! We have regional specific packing lists, a recommended reading listborder crossing tips, and other practical, realistic trip-planning information.
