TOP 10 ECO-TOURS FOR ECUADOR

 

National Parks Tours Ecuador and Galapagos

Hallo, welcome to our new website about national parks eco-tours in Ecuador. Let us you tell more about the fantastic national parks of Ecuador, that no travel agent will ever tell you. Why? Very simple, because they have no idea, as no travel agent in Ecuador knows 3 or 4 parks at best, they simply have no idea what the parks system of Ecuador has to offer.

 

We are Dr. Flavio Coello, former director of the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve and current professor or ecotourism and national parks management, Dr. Randy Borman, member of the Cofan Tribe and Dr. Daan Vreugdenhil, aka the "Parks Man", member of the former United Nations selection team of the Ecuador National Parks System. Nobody knows the National parks better than we do. Nobody knows the national parks and reserves of Ecuador better than we do.

 

Ecuador has some of the richest national parks systems in the world, with the greatest varieties in climates, landscapes and species of animals and plants. And yet........ hardly anybody goes there. So we decided to develop different National Parks Tours that represent the highlights of Ecuador's national parks system.

 

But we also love culture and we always combine nature with the cultural highlights.

WHY WE CREATED PARKS AND TRIBES.

How it began

Our jungle biologists started organizing national park tours in the nineteen eighties because we were concerned that many operators of eco tours mostly organize tours outside the national parks, taking their guests to easily reachable patches of secondary forest. By doing so, they actually compete with the really important official nature reserves. We also feel that national parks need to create employment and economic opportunities for communities living near the protected areas. By organizing national parks tours, we let you enjoy the most fantastic nature of the country and thereby helping to conserve both national parks and local communities. So, by coming along on our tours, you get to see the best of the best, Ecuador has to offer, while conserving pristine nature and helping communities.
