Vacation Itinerary

Vacation Day 1 - Quito
Welcome to Ecuador’s capital, Quito! Meet up with your 18-35 Years Old trip Team & group before exploring – we’ll start the trip out right with a tour around the city so you can get your bearings. Our expert guide will teach you all about this city & the history of the Inca & Spanish invasion which happened in the 15th Century and you’ll get the opportunity to check out the colonial-era buildings that still stand in Old Town. This UNESCO World Heritage city is Ecuador’s second largest, with a population over 2 million. Although this city has a rich historical past dating back to the Incas, today it’s a popular & modern city that sprawls across this Andean landscape – and you’ll experience some of the best views 200m above the town at the Panciello lookout, which features La Virgen del Panecillo, a majestic sculpture that stands overlooking the city. Later, visit the Equatorial line & wander between the two hemispheres as you visit the Inti Nan Museum. We’ll have dinner with the group so you can get you know your travel buddies. The city has a great nightlife scene & some great local treats to try. Ecuadorian fresh fruit juice and steaming cafe con leche are amongst some of the must-try delights on offer here. If you feel like doing as the locals do, you could sip on a canelazo, made from hot water, sugarcane alcohol, lemon, sugar, and cinnamon – it’s a typical drink of the Andean region. Hotel (D)

Vacation Day 2 - Quito to Tena
It’s out of the city & into the lush jungle with spectacular views as we make our way to Tena – the gateway to Ecuador’s Amazon Jungle. This attractive & quiet city is the perfect place to relax & soak up the local attractions. First stop is a visit to thermal pool for a refreshing swim – these baths are located on the banks of the Papallacta River with the Andres as your backdrop – it’s a great way to relax those muscles. Later, we’re back on the road towards Tena, with a last stop at a hummingbird sanctuary to see some of these amazing birds up close. Here you’ll learn about these incredible species & why Ecuador’s diverse climate & unique eco-system produces such large number of these gorgeous creatures. Tonight, why not sit back with a drink & soak up the views. Hotel (B),(D)

Vacation Day 3 - Tena
This morning is all about ME Time. This morning, have a lie in or opt to visit an indigenous community. Get your adrenalin pumping this afternoon on a class 3-4 rapids. Hotel (B) (D)

Vacation Day 4 - Tena to Baños
This morning is all about ME Time so you make the call, relax and explore Tena for yourself. This morning there is an opportunity to visit an indigenous community and learn about their way of life before we get on the road to ‘The Gateway to the Amazon’ Baños, nestled under the still active Tungurahua Volcano. Hotel (B)

Vacation Day 5 - Baños
Situated in a valley of waterfalls and hot springs, Baños has become a mecca for international travellers seeking year-round temperate weather, a small town atmosphere, and a base for exploring the great Ecuadorian outdoors. The town offers hot springs, horseback riding, trekking and climbing so it's a haven for the explorer. With a free day, get into the action the way you want - outdoor revellers amongst us will love the network of trails criss-crossing the mountains surrounding Baños. You could walk half an hour to the Virgin Monument, ride horseback to a waterfall, or try canyoneering down waterfalls - the choice is yours. Tonight, grab your dancing shoes because tonight its time to salsa! Get a taste of the addictive Latin American dance phenomenon. Learn the essential Salsa steps, in a fun & energetic atmosphere with our expert locals giving you a taste of how it’s done. The rhythm of salsa music will take over your body & by the end of the night you’ll be salsa dancing with style & confidence. Then we finish up with a tasty local feast. Hotel (B)

Vacation Day 6 - Baños to Guayaquil
Today we’re off to discover Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest city & its economic hub. This cosmopolitan city is one of Ecuador’s new hotspots, a walk down to the Malecón (Cities riverfront) is a must. For a bit of a historic enlightenment why not venture to Las Peñas, one of the most emblematic neighborhoods of Guayaquil, its narrow streets and interesting past makes it a great visit. Tonight we set sail on a evening cruise down the Guayas River in a Captain Morgan replica pirate boat, relax as see spectacular views of the city, Las Peñas, colourful Cerro Santa Ana, and the Malecón 2000. You’ll have the opportunity to buy drinks and nibbles while you enjoy the skyline by night. Hotel (B)

Vacation Day 7 - Guayaquil to Isabela Island
After our flight, we'll make our way to the cute little town of Puerto Ayora, but not before your first taste of the incredible natural habitat here - en route we'll stop to check out the famed giant tortoises in their natural surroundings, and some of the incredible old lava tunnels (some over 1km long) winding their way under the island of Santa Cruz. We’ll stop for lunch before getting out on the water for our first boat ride to Isabela - this nature haven is home to land and sea life that will astound and amaze. Once we arrive on the island we'll head to town for our first night in the Galapagos National Park. As you chill and get to know your travel buddies keep an eye out for the friendly reintroduced wild tortoises roaming around. Tonight, relax over dinner & get ready for two nights in this beautiful spot. Hotel (B), (D)

Vacation Day 8 - Isabela Island
This morning we’ll grab some kayaks & get out on the water around Las Tintoreras where we’ll set out in search for the Galapagos Penguin – the only penguin found north of the Equator! On return, spot colourful fish as you snorkel the underground lava tubes. This area is often frequented by green sea turtles that like to rest on the calm, sandy bottom, so make sure you are on the lookout for these incredible creatures as you snorkel through the clear blue water. Then this afternoon we’ll walk to the Wall of Tears. From 1945 to 1959 this place held prisoners who were forced to build this wall stone by stone. At 25m tall, it took thousands of lives during its construction. Legend has it that cries of those lost can be heard at the site. Hotel (L),(B)

Vacation Day 9 - Isabela Island to Santa Cruz Island
This morning we’ll head to the Giant Tortoise Breeding Center to learn about the island’s natural history on a guided tour, before we take off Santa Cruz Island. Before heading to Santa Cruz Island, you can choose to chill or get active, it's up to you! If you feel like getting out and about, this afternoon’s optional activity is a guided trip to the gorgeous Tortuga Bay. After a half an hour stroll along a path you'll arrive at a stretch of white sandy beach where marine iguanas sunbathe. You also have an opportunity to kayak in the bay in search of sharks, rays, turtles, and great blue herons. This pristine beach is absolute heaven! Not ready to wield a paddle? No worries – this is the perfect opportunity to sun bathe, body surf, surf, or look for marine iguanas, lava gulls and the famous blue- footed boobies. If you aren’t feeling up for the walk, take to the streets and go local or head to town to shop for souvenirs or relax. Hotel (B)

Vacation Day 10 - Santa Cruz Island to San Cristobal Island
This morning we’ll pay a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station, once home to one of the island’s most famous residents, the world-famous Lonesome George – who was 100 years old when he died. Here you’ll observe many species of tortoises and land iguanas brought back from the brink of extinction and learn about this centre and research facility. Later we're back on the boat as we head to our next island, San Cristobal. - keep an eye out for bathing sea lions that the island is known for! This island is made up of four volcanoes – all extinct – and later, we’ll head up into the highlands for a scenic downhill bike ride. Starting at a panoramic viewpoint called La Soledad, we’ll bike through the tiny town of El Progreso and five different and varied vegetation zones until we reach a beach La Loberia beach. From there you can check out some of the other locals - we’ll be able to watch cute sea lions sun bathing, playing and vying for our attention.  Tonight, it’s all about relaxing over drinks at one of our favourite local spots while watching the sunset.  Hotel (B)

Vacation Day 11 - San Cristobal Island
Today we take to the water to get our last glimpse of the famous and equally incredible underwater world of Galapagos. First we’ll cruise along the coast in our boat where our Local Guide will point out the species of shore birds like the Great Frigatebird and other native species.
We begin our stay in search of wildlife and then we are off to Kicker Rock (or Leon Dormido as it’s known by the locals) the remains of a tuff cone - Kicker Rock rising a massive over 143m out of the ocean (that's about 50 floors in building terms). We’ll check out the underwater landscape as we head along the edge and through a channel of this drastic compact ash formation. Your Local Guide will keep you in the know as we look out for sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, chocolate chip starfish, and, with any luck, a Galapagos Shark or two. Don’t worry, they won’t be as interested in you as you are in them, so it's perfectly safe.Later we’ll head to Manglecito, a beautiful beach which is our final stop for the day. After lunch on board, spend your time swimming in the turquoise water or snapping photos of Kicker Rock in the distance. We’ll head back to town late afternoon where we'll be treated to one of the best BBQ’s in the Galapagos at one of the local’s favorite spots to celebrate a great Galapagos trip.  Hotel (L),(B),(D)

Vacation Day 12 - San Cristobal Island to Guayaquil
The trip is about to come to an end, but its not over yet. Make the most of the time you have left & soak up those last rays and have a few photos with the crew. Next up is Guayaquil, where it’s time to say ‘adios’ to your team & travel buddies.Hotel (B)
