Maria Herrera

Managing Director

"Ecuador is a remarkable country. With a rich cultural heritage and astounding scenery and wildlife, everyone can discover their unforgettable experience. From the peaks of the volcanoes and the rolling hills of Quito, down past the Amazon rain forest and cloud forests, onto the Pacific Coastline and across the water to the Galapagos - Ecuador truly has it all."

Pajonal Tours offers a wide variety of tours to our great country - showcasing the best of what Ecuador has to offer. 

Ecuador has so much to offer - pristine Amazonian rain forest, the majestic Galapagos Islands and the incredible bio diversity that they provided that led to Charles Darwin's famous book - On the Origins of the Species. The beautiful architecture found in Quito is the best preserved colonial city on the continent, so much so that the city had the honour of being named the first World Unesco Heritage city back in 1978. 

Our team are all native born Ecuadorians, and use their homegrown knowledge to create tailor made tours that suit your needs. We plan every stage of your trip, so all you need do is sit back and enjoy - or depending on how adventurous you are, stand up and get those hiking boots on.

​"Nothing quite sums up an adventurous lifestyle as a trek through the Amazon rain forest. Whether your first glimpse was the opening scenes from Raiders of the Lost Ark, or from the the dulcet tones of Sir David Attenborough, thoughts of the Amazon bring to mind exotic animals, dense jungle alive with the tweeps and chirps of insects, tribes rich with culture.  

 

Join us and sail down the Amazon in a luxurious ship offering first class accommodation, or perhaps you prefer to keep your feed on dry land - we have something to offer even the most trepid adventurer!"

The Ecuadorian Amazon is a breath-taking slice of the rain forest, boasting abundant life - and often referred to as 'the lungs of the world'. 

With new species being discovered practically on a daily basis, the Ecuadorian Amazon is a remarkably diverse area of the country, with more species of tree in just 1 acre than the whole of the United States. 

There are many options for adventurers seeking out their own little slice of jungle. Cruise ships meander down the rivers, and lodges nestle along the banks.

Marvel at the sights, the sounds and the scale of the rain forest, possibly the last true wilderness on the planet.

"I love the Galapagos Islands, the astounding variety of animals is breath-taking - both on land and under the waves. Come see the marine iguanas, the blue footed Boobies, the shoals of Hammer Head sharks and of course the colonies of seals - and the legendary Galapagos Penguin.

The Galapagos Islands are a series of volcanic islands off the coast of Ecuador, and only accessible from the Ecuadorian main land.

 

The islands display a huge variety in not only the plants and the animals that inhabit them, but also the geology. The islands to the East are older than the islands to the West, where they are born from large underground volcanoes. As you move East, you can see the islands aging, become weathered by the elements and turning from lush, full of life islands into rocky crags that few plants and animals are able to inhabit.
