Explore Ecuador

Visit the lush country of Ecuador, sandwiched between Peru on the east and south and Colombia in the North. Ecuador attracts tourists from around the world through its biodiversity, including the mountainous terrain of the highlands, the enchanted Galapagos Islands, the rainforest clouds of the Amazon, and the serene pacific coastline. The bustling cities of Quito, or La Capital del Sol, and Guayaquil offer a variety of activities for the inquisitive traveler. With the packages and excursions Dos Manos offers, you will get to know all of Ecuador’s beautiful sites!

We offer a pick up package from the Quito airport as a great way to start your travels through Ecuador. From there, check out our many excursion options, including several trips into the Andean mountain range of the Sierra. Tour the National Park Cotopaxi and see Quilotoa lagoon, a crystal blue volcanic crater lake nearby the Andean Mountains. Visit Baños de Agua Santa, a lovely city in eastern Tungurahua Province named after the hydrothermal springs of mineral water located around the city and known as the ¨Gateway to the Amazon¨.

The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands, known for their vast number of endemic species. Check out our Galapagos Cruise package and Galapagos Land Tour to see the fantastic wildlife of these islands. If you want more forest and fauna, sign up for our Jamu Lodge excursion to go on a 4-5 day trip through the Cuyabeno River in the beautifully unkempt Amazon jungle.

Guayaquil
GUAYAQUIL
Ecuador's largest city and the nation's main port, Guayaquil has a lot to offer. Whether it is ambling along the seafront or through the artistic centre of Las Peñas neighbourhood, you're sure to find things to do. Escape the sun for a lazy day at Parque Centenario, or check out the Palacio Municipal, one of the most important architectural works in the country.
Quilotoa
QUILOTOA
Visit one of Ecuador's least touristy sites at Quilotoa Lagoon. This beautiful lagoon is a gem in the Ecuadorian Andes and boasts great views of Cotopaxi, the highest mountain in the area. This 2 day trip includes a walk down to the shore on the first day, before a hike around the crater on day 2, before returning to Quito.
Otavalo
OTAVALO
Famous for its Saturday market, this year-round program can be done on a Saturday for solely this reason, or during the week for a more rounded view of Otavalo and its sights. This Otavalo trip takes in the Bizcoches (biscuit) factory and Condor project, but these can be skipped if you're in a rush for the artisan and animal market of Otavalo!
Papallacta
PAPALLACTA
Set in the mountains between the Sierra and the Ecuadorian Amazon, this is the perfect place to escape the business of Quito in search of peace and tranquility. You'll find this in the thermal baths of Papallacta, around 70km from Quito. Our Papallacta tour includes private transfer, but you can choose public to make the trip more economical should you wish.
Cotopaxi
COTOPAXI
Our Cotopaxi tour is a one day excursion from Quito, where we take you to 300m below the mountain lodge. You slowly walk up to the lodge, at the same height of Mt Blanc at 4800m, before getting on a bike and heading back down to the transport. It doesn't stop here though; you then ride 39km to the entrance of the Cotopaxi national park. This is the perfect way to do some riding at altitude, and the scenery will take your breath away.
Baños
BAÑOS
Set just inside the Amazon basin, this town and its beautiful location plays host to a fantastic 3 day Baños tour. Several activities are available to make your time in Baños extra special. Rafting in Baños de Agua Santa is fantastic, as is a bike trip along the road to see the many waterfalls that litter the area. There are many sites inside the town as well, such as the thermal baths that give Baños its name, or the impressive Basilica.
