Country: Ecuador and The Galapagos

Ecuador is a country where both kids and parents can get their kicks as the family scratches its sense of adventure together. Straddle the equator near capital city of Quito, zip line through green cloud forests, and horseback with ranchers in the Avenue of Volcanoes. Opportunities to help out in the local community abound.

Quality time in mainland Ecuador makes a great stand-alone adventure, or the perfect prelude to a family trip to the Galapagos Islands.
