Recent Ecuador property reviews

  • Great place to stay

    "We arrived in Puerto Ayora and was met by Fernanda, Mimosa's property manager that escorted us to the property. Mimosa is a short pleasant boat ride across the bay, the property itself was clean and well maintained. The staff was wonderful and very helpful, Paul (owner) met us and answered all questions we had. From Mimosa we took hikes and loved visiting Las Grietas a small swimming hole where you can climb the rocks and jump in. It took us around 25 minutes to walk to the swimming hole from Mimosa. Traveling to and from Puerto Ayora was very easy and we did so several times a day. Lots of activities and sightseeing in the area and taxis are easily accessible and relatively cheap. Don't forget to visit the fresh fish market after 5pm for a fantastic meal."

The neighbourhood has many restaurants, shops and a few blocks away the mall Multicentro, it made everything easier, I recommend this suite as it's as it says, a charming place to make your stay in Quito as enjoyable as possible"

  • Outstanding Choice in Cuenca!

    "Our family of 4 had a wonderful one month stay in this beautiful apartment. The location is perfect...right on the Tomebamba River, across from a great park (walking track, playgrounds, and weekly special events), and next to the old town area. The apartment is spacious, well-decorated, and set up well for cooking. We arrived in the evening, and were so happy to discover that initial groceries and breakfast items had been provided, so we didn't need to worry about rushing out for groceries. It was great to have a desktop computer and printer available for our use, and the wifi and TV coverage were excellent. There is lots of space, spread out over two floors, which we really appreciated after nine months of traveling. This was our last stop on our extended trip, and was a delightful place to conclude our travels. We feel like we saved the best for last!"

Most people visit the jungle areas between April and September. The highlands are popular trekking destinations, and the ideal season to explore this area is in the cooler, drier winter months. Many people visit Ecuador to experience the colorful festivals. Highlights in the calendar are Christmas and Easter as well as Independence Day which is celebrated in July.

Most Popular Ecuador Travel Destinations

It is a popular destination for those interested in ancient history and culture as well as colonial architecture. The city has a vibrant atmosphere, and shopping at the many markets and shops is a delight.

There are many relics of earlier times which include ancient ruins and villages. Trekking in the jungle is a wonderful nature experience. There are many species of birds, mammals and reptiles that are unique to Ecuador. In some areas, you can experience life in the treetops by going on a canopy zip line tour which takes you from platform to platform high above the jungle floor.

Types of Ecuador Accommodation Options Available

Ecuador has a wide range of accommodation options available, catering to all levels of budget. Typically, staying in a vacation home is a more affordable way to stay in Ecuador and you can stretch your travel budget by hiring a larger villa and inviting some friends along. The homes range from stylish inner-city apartments to spacious beach haciendas. Regardless of size, most are comfortably furnished with living and dining areas, and well-equipped kitchens. For those villas located in more rural beachfront settings, many have beautiful gardens or outdoor decks where you can relax and enjoy the scenery.

Traveling to Quito Vacation Rentals in Ecuador

There are three international airports on mainland Ecuador and one on the Galapagos Islands. Depending on where in Ecuador you will be staying, you can choose your gateway accordingly. The primary airport is in the capital city of Quito and known as the Mariscal Sucre Airport. The airports in Ecuador host more than 20 regional and international airlines. There are regularly scheduled commercial flights on most North American airlines and several major European airlines.

Taxis are the easiest and most convenient way to get from the airports to your destination. Car rentals are available but traffic can often be chaotic.

This is a good option if you are traveling with your family or a group of friends.
