Accommodation in Ecuador is wide-ranging, and caters to everyone from penny-pinching backpackers to those with money to burn. With Exclusive Galapagos Cruises LLC you will find a nice variety of five star hotels and some new boutique hotels with distinct character or very cozy ambience. Most of these hotels are located in Quito, Cuenca and Guayaquil.
ECO-LODGES: In recent years there has been a proliferation of eco-lodges across Ecuador; basically environmentally-friendly hotels often set in large, protected areas of land. They use the local communities to improve school, build paths and improve the quality of life for the locals.
RAINFOREST LODGES: If your idea of a vacation includes a pool, a buffet table and hammocks, there are jungle lodges that will provide that. If you are more interested in animals and birds than comfort, you should check out the more remote lodges. Still other lodges offer a closer look at local jungle communities, which can also be fascinating.
HACIENDAS: Ecuador is a country with a rich colonial past. In colonial times, the mountainous countryside was divided up among rich landowners who ruled Indian villages like medieval dukes. The landowners usually built a hacienda, a sort of rural mansion, as a place to live and oversee the work done on their lands. In the last few years, many of the most picturesque old haciendas have been converted into hotels and guesthouses. The spacious rooms, beautiful gardens and centuries of history have proved irresistible to thousands of travelers every year. The best haciendas have not lost their rural charm: they still feel like a home, and friendly staff members make guests comfortable.
