Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — NARAT’s ‘Ultimate Ecuador & Galapagos’ fam takes place Feb. 19 – March 1, 2019.
The 11-day specialty educational program introduces agents to the cultural and geographical highlights of Ecuador and includes an option for an Amazon extension.
The trip includes: UNESCO heritage sites, including the 16th century Spanish colonial city of Quito; an exploration of Otavalo Market, the largest indigenous market in South America; and a Galapagos Islands cruise.
There’s also an overnight at a 300-year historic ranch, a residence of South American legend Simón Bolívar, and a one-night stay in a traditional South American indigenous village in the Andes Mountains. Accommodation is with deluxe hotels, historic haciendas and an overnight with a traditional family.
Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a 4-day fam extension to the Amazon region.
