Ecuador & Galapagos

Luxury Family Vacations in Ecuador & The Galapagos

Combine culture and nature on a family vacation to Ecuador, where the interests of both parents and children can be piqued by enriching activities like architectural tours around charming cities, market visits, explorations of Incan archaeological ruins, and wildlife spotting while cruising in the Galapagos Islands.

The capital of Quito is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Renaissance-era architecture, balconied Spanish townhouses, and whitewashed churches. It makes for a great starting point to appreciate the history of the country. Marvel at the local’s colourful traditions on visits to markets filled with fruits, flowers, ponchos, livestock and handicrafts. Kids will enjoy learning about chocolate production at a cacao farm.

Spend a few days aboard a luxury yacht to sail amongst the Galapagos Islands meeting penguins, giant tortoises, iguanas and sea lions along the way. On top of exploring the fascinating native flora and fauna, learn about Darwin’s landing here in 1835, hear tales of pirates and whalers, and take part in ancient traditions.
