We really believe that your accommodation should add to the travel experience. So, when we're looking for places to stay in Ecuador, we avoid characterless and impersonal 'could be anywhere' resorts and big hotels. Instead we favour places that are small scale, true to the local culture and built in harmony with their surroundings.

To be featured by us, hotels also need to go above and beyond when it comes to responsibility. All the hotels we use meet our minimum ethical criteria, but we’re especially proud to support our favourites below, which are doing some amazing work.
