Need a Car For After Your Flight?

Why You Should Take A Flight To Ecuador

You should book flights to Ecuador to prove to yourself that the best things sometimes do come in small packages. Despite being a relatively small South American country, nestling between Colombia, Peru and the Pacific Ocean, Ecuador is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. It is literally teeming with flora and fauna, from the hummingbirds of the Amazon rainforest to the unique wildlife on the Galapagos Islands. From stunning sun-kissed beaches to volcanoes topped with ice, the landscape of Ecuador is constantly changing and delighting.

When To Book Flights To Ecuador

The fact that Ecuador lies along the Equator means that it has no summer or winter, merely a wetter season and a dryer season. The ‘wetter’ season runs from December to June, while July to November is typically drier. That said, conditions can vary depending upon the geographical features of your particular spot in Ecuador, and the busiest months for tourists tend to be December to January and June to August. If you want to avoid crowds and higher prices, try to travel outside these months.

How To Find The Best Flight Deals To Ecuador

The likelihood of finding cheap flights to Ecuador will vary depending upon when you’re travelling, but you’re far more likely to do so if you make use of the Orbitz search engine. If you’re flexible about your plans, you can click on the ‘Show flexible dates’ option and be given prices for a range of departure dates and times. At the same time, the ‘Nearby airports’ option allows you to choose from a range of cities to take off from or fly into, choosing those which best match your plans and budget.

Main Airports In Ecuador

  • Mariscal Sucre International Airport (UIO)

Mariscal Sucre International Airport is located 11 miles east of the capital city of Ecuador and offers state-of-the-art facilities, having been opened in 2013. It is one of the busiest airports in South America, handling almost 6 million passengers per year. It is also a hub airport for the region, offering domestic flights on to the rest of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Taxis and buses can be taken from outside the arrival hall, and many of the local hotels lay on free shuttle buses.

  • Jose Joaquin de Olmedo International Airport (GYE)

The second busiest airport for flights to Ecuador is Jose Joaquin de Olmedo International, located three miles north of Guayaquil, the most densely populated city in Ecuador. The airport’s newest terminal was opened in just 2006, so travellers can expect a clean and smooth running welcome. Local buses and taxis run to the nearby city center, and many of the hotels provide free shuttle buses.

Which Airlines Fly To Ecuador?

Airlines which fly to Mexico directly from the US include the following:

  • American Airlines
  • Delta Air Lines
  • JetBlue Airways
  • TAME
  • United Airlines

How To Get To And Around Ecuador

Although the two main airports offer domestic flights around Ecuador, one of the best ways of enjoying the landscape of the country is to take a ride on one of the many intercity buses. Timetables are available online, and advance booking may be needed if you’re travelling during peak periods. The buses often travel along highly scenic routes, taking high altitude roads over mountains and through clouds. For travelling within cities, taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced.

Places To Visit In Ecuador

Quito

Quito is officially the highest capital city in the world, standing 9,186 feet above sea level. The center of Quito is an exquisitely preserved historic old town, and was among the two places to first be declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1978. Because of its altitude, the weather here is usually quite cool and can be very changeable. Travellers interested in eco-tourism should hire a bike and head off to explore the surrounding valleys such as Valle de Tumbaco.

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are a natural wonder and a must-see for anyone visiting Ecuador. They can be reached from the mainland via a domestic flight or a specially booked boat trip. Almost half of the species living there are unique to the islands, and so tourism is highly regulated. Trips have to be booked in advance as part of a group, and all visitors are accompanied by an official tour guide.

Manta

Manta is a major coastal city located in the Manabí Province, and is home to the largest sea port in Ecuador. Many tourists head to Manta lured by the promise of a vibrant nightlife, particularly in the area surrounding El Murciélago beach, which is lined with bars and restaurants and offers the chance to enjoy surfing, sailing, fishing and body-boarding.

Tips And Tricks For Traveling In Ecuador

US citizens don’t require a visa to visit Ecuador, just a passport valid for six months. For safety’s sake, tourists are advised to stay away from the Colombian border and to watch out for pickpockets in crowded place such as beaches. Visitors should follow the local lead and stick to bottled water.

How to book the cheapest flight to Ecuador?
With Orbitz, you’ll find some of the most impressive flight deals around from a great range of airlines. But if you want to improve your chances of booking cheap flights to Ecuador, here are a few pointers we think will help:

  • Taking off from or arriving at nearby airports may work out cheaper. Type in your preferred departure and arrival airports. Next, click on the ‘Nearby airports’ function below to look through your options.
  • Similarly, click on the ‘Show flexible dates’ option to compare the airfares on days around your chosen departure. You may be able to score cheaper flight deals if you’re flexible with your schedule.
  • You can also hit the ‘Show options’ link to filter results for your preferred carrier, seating class, and nonstop and refundable flights. Under ‘Sort & Filter’ to the left, you can even pick the time of day you’d like to fly.
  • Once you’ve worked out your travel dates, don’t waste time booking your flight. Prices generally get more expensive as the departure date nears.
  • Think about bundling your flights, hotels and car rental into an Orbitz package deal to save money.
  • If possible, don’t fly in high seasons. Airfares usually surge during school breaks, summer and other vacation periods like Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

What is the best time to book a flight to Ecuador?
Generally speaking, the cheapest time to book a seat is in January. This is closely followed by February and August. When looking for a cheap flight to Ecuador, it always pays to be ready to book. Cheap deals pop up quickly and don’t wait around!
What day of the week is the cheapest to book a flight to Ecuador?
When it comes to cheap fares to Ecuador, the best days to book are generally Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. An unbeatable flight deal is just a few clicks away with Orbitz.

Which airlines allow free cancellation?
Flexibility is important these days, that’s why Orbitz lets you search for flights that won’t slap on fees for making amendments. Enter your departure and arrival points, then click on “Filter by flexible change policies.” We’ll show you options that include free cancellation within 24 hours of booking and no change fees.
What do I need for the flight to Ecuador?
It’s always wise to be ready for anything when going on a trip. Keep in mind the following tips for a smooth, stress-free flight:

  • You’ll need to present identification such as a valid passport. To avoid confusion during check-in, make sure you reserve your flight tickets under the same name as your official ID. It’s worth having digital copies of important documents too, just in case!
  • Take a good book or a tablet filled with your favorite movies — it’ll help to pass time on your long journey to Ecuador. Or if you’re hoping to enjoy a snooze, an eye mask will shield you from those bright cabin lights.
  • Cabin temperatures can get real chilly. Pack an extra warm layer even if you’re heading off during the height of Ecuador summer.

How do I get cheap first-class/business deals to Ecuador?
If you think a business or first-class airfare is beyond your grasp, think again. Here are a few practical tips to help you score a premium flight to Ecuador for a whole lot less:

  • Being flexible isn’t just useful for your yoga. Have some room to move around your travel dates so you can snap up more affordable airfares when a big sale comes along.
  • Budget airlines offer first or business-class seating at more affordable prices. Give the full-service carriers a miss and go with one of these cheaper options.
  • Take advantage of your airline’s rewards program and upgrade your seat. Alternatively, you can try bidding for an upgrade in online auctions.

Travel tips for Ecuador

  • Ecuador has lots of wonderful attractions and Iguazu Falls is one of them. Pick up a car rental and cruise there at your own speed.
  • One of Ecuador’s most prominent cities, Quito is the ideal place to begin a big road trip around this region. Eat, sleep, explore and repeat — it’s what getaways are for!
