Our beautiful country has the advantage that it is originally a destination for nature lovers with small-scale lodges and hotels in the great outdoors. In 2018, only 2.4 million travelers visited Ecuador, for comparison, in the same year Mexico received 30.6 million, Peru received 4.4 million.

Away from the human bustle, wandering by yourself through the vast National Parks, small villages, UNESCO Cultural Heritage Cities; you will have true peace and space to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature, local culture, and exquisite cuisine.


We are pleased to inform you that as of February 11, all travelers arriving in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands are not required to present the PCR Negative test, only if they have their complete Vaccination Certificate

All travelers over 12 years of age must present:

Vaccination certificate with the QR code, in exceptional cases the certificate of vaccination against COVID19 with at least 14 days of validity after completing the scheme.


The Negative result of a RT-PCR test performed up to 72 hours prior to embarking to Ecuador

All travelers between the ages of 2 and 12 years must present a Negative result of a RT-PCR test performed up to 72 hours prior to embarking on Ecuador

As an alternative to the above entry requirements, travelers entering Ecuador who were previously diagnosed as COVID-19 positive may present a medical certificate from their country of origin attesting to their recovery and current good health, as long as the onset of the COVID-19 symptoms occurred more than 30 days prior to arrival in Ecuador.

Travel health insurance is mandatory for foreign tourists.


– Before disembarking, the passenger must complete and sign the Traveler’s health form, which will be given to the Ministry of Health upon arrival for the respective medical control.

– A rapid antigen test will be performed randomly upon entry into the country. This test will be performed by the Ministry of Public Health of Ecuador (MSP). In case the rapid antigen test is positive, the passenger becomes a patient and must perform mandatory isolation for ten (10) days in the temporary care centers assigned by the MSP for this purpose and comply with the provisions indicated by the health authority. In case the rapid antigen test is negative, the person will not be required to undergo mandatory isolation.
