Andes and Banos descending to the Coast - 3 nights
Day 3 to Day 6

The central sierra of Ecuador is known as 'The Avenues of the Volcanoes' (325 km.), a necklace of 'snow-cones' like a jeweled crown. Chimborazo, Antisana, and Cotopaxi - to name perhaps the most emblematic - are all highly prized mountain-climbing destinations that rise well over 16,000 feet above sea level and give the overall Andean landscape, from large cities to small towns, a character of unsurpassable splendor.

Day 1: Quito - Banos - Riobamba

Departing south from Quito along the 'Avenue of the Volcanoes' we stop near the impressive Cotopaxi Volcano (5,943 m) to admire from afar its beauty and continue along a series of temperate valleys with some villages and towns like Latacunga, Salcedo or Ambato before arriving in Banos, a small and friendly town/thermal bath resort nestled amidst mountains and found midway between the Andes and the Amazon. Travel along the beautiful Pastaza River canyon and visit its many waterfalls: Cascada de la Virgen, Ines Maria, the Bride's Shroud, Machay Trail, and Pailón del Diablo. Afternoon drive towards the city of Riobamba and weather permitting view the highest mountain in Ecuador, Chimborazo with over twenty thousand feet. Continue onto the city for a panoramic tour of Riobamba. Hotel accommodation.

Day 2: Riobamba - Alausi - Ingapirca Ruins - Cuenca (B, BL)

Breakfast. We start the day traveling through some of the country's most picturesque areas before reaching the railway station at Alausi. Travel by train through the Andes down tracks that form a unique zigzag pattern known as the Devil's Nose. Box Lunch. Continuing south we will find the Inca-Canari ruins of Ingapirca, an amazing archaeological showcase of the splendor of Incan rule in our country. Reach Cuenca by nightfall.

Day 3: Cuenca (B)

Breakfast. One of the most beautiful colonial cities in Ecuador and also a Unesco's World Heritage Site. We visit the Cathedral, Main Square, the flower market, San Francisco and Santo Domingo churches and the Central Bank Museum with permanent archaeological, anthropological, colonial and republican art collections, including interesting photography documenting the city's history. We will visit the Monastery of The Immaculate Conception, cloisters built between 1668 and 1729, recently remodeled and home to an extraordinary collection of religious art. In the late afternoon, we visit a Panama hat factory. Hotel accommodation.

Day 4: Cuenca - El Cajas National Park - Guayaquil (B)

Breakfast. Our journey to the coast shall take some four hours drive in total. After about one hour, we drive across El Cajas National Park, an area known for its more than 200 lakes and lagoons, including La Toreadora; in less than three hours, the highway will take us from 4000 meters down to sea level, making it possible to observe some of the different habitats responsible for Ecuador's diversity: Andean moorlands, the cloud forests of the subtropical zone, the foothills and wet tropical rainforest along with some tropical crops such as cacao, bananas, sugar cane or rice. Transfer to hotel.

Ecuador

The smallest country in the rugged Andean highlands, Ecuador is among the most rewarding travel destinations in South America. With its array of vibrant indigenous cultures, well preserved colonial architecture, picturesque volcanic landscapes and the dense Amazon Rain Forest, it packs its perimeters with more points of interest than many countries twice its size. All of this no more than a day drive from its picture perfect colonial capital of Quito.

Quito
The Capital City of Ecuador - Quito has wonderful spring-like climate. It is in a valley flanked by majestic mountains and on a clear day, several snow-capped volcanoes are visible from the capital. Is rich in history and much of the old colonial town is well preserved, the buildings are unchanged and to walk down colonial Quito's streets late at night is to step into bygone eras. Quito nestles a rich treasury of religious and decorative architecture and arts.

Guayaquil
The most important Ecuador's port, this city is a good departure point or gateway for the Galapagos. The most populous and active city in Ecuador, Guayaquil is Ecuador's commercial center. Shopping bargains abound. Rich and varied seafood is a culinary specialty. Las Penas neighborhood preserves the colonial period at its best. Guayaquil is the natural gateway to beautiful beaches and nautical sports, and offers great entertainment with its many restaurants, nightclubs, and casinos.
