Holidays for couples in Ecuador

Ecuador may not be the first destination that springs to mind when you are planning a trip with your other half, but this South American paradise is the perfect place to find romance. With its miles of beautiful beaches, diverse landscape and captivating wildlife, an Ecuador holiday offers you a couple's trip with a difference.

If you are looking for a luxury holiday with a twist, there are also plenty of opportunities to enjoy something a little more thrilling. So no matter what you and your partner are looking for, a holiday in Ecuador can help you have the trip of a lifetime.

Nature lovers

If you both have a penchant for wildlife, an Ecuador holiday is the perfect destination. With part of the Amazon Rainforest and the Galapagos Islands to experience, you can be sure to get up close and personal to some of the most beautiful animals in the world. From turtles and giant tortoises, to caiman crocodiles, and iguanas, Ecuador is the perfect place to get closer to nature.

Elsewhere, you can plan a romantic trip with your loved one by taking a whale watching trip in Puerto Lopez. Each year, thousands of humpback whales migrate past Ecuador, allowing visitors to see these incredible animals for themselves.

Culture vultures

Planning a luxury holiday in Ecuador doesn't mean you have to miss out on culture, as there are a variety of churches, ruins, and other points of interest for you and your partner to experience. Quito, the country's capital, comprises a number of beautiful monasteries and churches in the old town. Take a trip with your partner and discover its romance as you walk through the narrow, winding streets.

The country's largest archaeological Inca ruins are found at Ingapirca. Here, guides will take you both through the groups of fascinating stone structures, which surround a spectacular circular sun temple. Walk hand-in-hand, as you discover the connection this incredible site and Ecuador's only remaining sun temple has to the modern-day country.

Thrill-seeking couples

For couples who are looking for a luxury holiday in Ecuador with a difference, there are plenty of opportunities for thrill seekers to get their fill. This is especially ideal if you are staying on or around the coast, as cities like Ibarra allow you to enjoy some more active pursuits. From kayaking to rafting, you can find something to make your Ecuador holiday a truly memorable experience.

Travelling to the small town of Banos, which is located on Ecuador's most active volcano, gives you the opportunity to try your hand at bungee jumping or biking, as well as taking a trek up the volcano itself.

The so-called Devil's Nose Train Ride is not for the faint-hearted, as this train ride will take you to the very edge of cliffs as it travels between Quito and Guayaquil.

After all that activity, you might want to relax. With miles and miles of beautiful beaches, taking a luxury holiday in Ecuador is an easy and convenient way to unwind with your other half.
