INCENTIVE TRAVEL TO ECUADOR?

Ecuador Incentive Travel

Ecuador is a relatively small but incredibly versatile country, where you will enjoy one highlight after the other, a very unique Incentive travel destination. It is one of the best starting points for a visit to the Amazon, with an incredibly high concentration of wildlife. Additionally, the country has imposing crater lakesvolcanoesthe Andesnative marketsbeautiful beaches and the Galapagos Islands! The volcanic belt leads you from the north to the south and forms a natural partition between the cloud forest and the Amazon. The cloud forest has an amazing diversity of bird species and has put Ecuador on the map as one of the world’s best places for bird watching.

During your incentive travel to Ecuador, you can visit ‘mitad del mundo’, where you can literally walk on the equator and will be surprised with everything that’s going on there. Or get lost in colonial cities like Quito, the most well-preserved colonial city of South America.

GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
Discover the unique Galapagos Islands. The archipelago that gave rise to Darwin’s theory of evolution is known for its pure and unique wildlife. You can snorkel with manta rays, sea lions and turtles; enjoy one of the splendid cruises. There’s no way to avoid encountering iguanas and gigantic tortoises and definitely no other place where you can observe wildlife this closely. For sure a once in a lifetime experience!
