The Cuyabeno Reverse is a protected zone since 26 July 1979 with an area of 603.380 square kilometres (2,329.7 sq mi) One of the principle objectives of the Cuyabeno Reserve is ongoing conservation of the Amazonian ecosystem- the most complex ecosystem in the world.
This reserve is a complex of rivers, lagoons, and floating forest. This protected area is characterized by its high biodiversity and interrelationships between the species inhabiting the area. The Reserve’s geomorphology is a consequence of the rivers carrying sediment and materials from the Andes, principally by the Aguarico River.The huge volume of water cascading down from the mountains maintains the naturally high water levels ensuring that the river is navigable all year round. In the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve there are more than 10 monkey species, 500 bird spices, and an incredible record of 307 species of tree per hectare.

Our personalized service offers a full tour of the Middle of the World, one of the Ecuador’s natural treasures. This tour provides a historical appreciation of Ecuadorians’ relationship with the mysteries of nature like the magnetic energy and physical impact of standing between the Northern and Southern hemispheres on the Equatorial Line. This is one of the few populated places in the world where the imaginary line passes. The majority of the Equator passes through oceans and uninhabited jungle. The Middle of the World was discovered by the indigenous people who studied the sun, planets and stars long before the arrival of the Spaniards and the French Geodesic mission.

Along the way, you will also learn about the northern part of Quito and the Valley of San Antonio de Pichincha as you enjoy the breathtaking vistas of the Andes.

The tour begins at the Pululahua Geobontanical Reserve where you can explore the crater of the volcano "Pululahua". A community of ingenious people live in harmony with the fertile land in the interior of the volcano.

If you’re interested in gay culture and activities in Ecuador, you’ve come to the right place! We are active members of the local gay community, and can offer you the following experiences:

·         We can take you to the gay bars and nightclubs in Quito, Guayaquil , Cuenca  and advise you on a range of issues from the styles of music and the kind of atmosphere they offer to personal security when you’re out and about at night.

·         Do you like theater? There is a drag queen theater group in Quito with different kinds of shows from the purely musical to the more theatrical. Let us take you to one of their shows. You will love it!

·         At different times of the year, it is possible to attend and participate in gay events like the gay film festival, literary workshops focused on gay literature, Gay pride parade, etc. We actively participate in these events and would love to get you involved, if you wish! We can even introduce you to gay authors, directors, etc.

·         Restaurants are another part of the gay culture in Quito. We can take you to an upscale, reasonably-priced, gay-friendly restaurant which offers gourmet Belgian-Ecuadorian fusion cuisine. If you prefer lighter fare, there’s also a nice gay (not just gay-friendly) restaurant that offers drinks and light snacks.

·         When you’re looking for relaxation or a great massage, we can take you to the local saunas and also advise you on safety and security.

·         On the more spiritual side, we can take you to a gay-friendly church which offers Sunday services in English, German, and Spanish.

·         At the same church, we lead weekly LGBT spiritual discussion groups. Come join us, and meet friendly LGBT folks from all walks of life. The discussions are in Spanish, but if you don’t speak the language and just want to be present and to make new friends, no problem: At the end of every group meeting, we hold a warm and friendly coffee hour where a lot of the members like to practice their English with visitors from abroad.

·         If you’re dealing with an addiction to sex, drugs, alcohol, or love, we also offer 12-step programs within the same gay-friendly environment. Some groups are in English, some in Spanish—ask us for details.


Quito, escorted by high volcanoes and formed by streets, broken and rocks where the houses become engraved like ooking for a solid shelter, are a city where people try to conserve her colorful traditions.
Quito is located on a horizontal strip of land running north to south between beautiful mountains. The splendor of the city's natural setting, combined with its attractive squares, parks and monuments as well as the warmth of its people, makes it a unique and unforgettable place.
Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Latin America. Located in the Andean mountains at the foot of Mount Pichincha 9200 feet above sea level. Quito has a spring-like climate all year. Beautifully preserved colonial churches , convents, palaces, and other buildings of note contrast with the contemporary architecture , a cosmopolitan city of great cultural diversity.

Quito has been designated the “Heritage of Mankind” by the United Nations. Stationed at nearly 10,000 feet, Quito is almost twice as high as Denver, Colorado. Though because it sits only 25 kilometres from the Equator, Quito does not suffer through long winters like the Mile High City . On the contrary, Ecuador's capital enjoys mild days and cool nights almost year-round. The climate in the Andes varies according to the altitude and the time of the year.
The temperature ranges from 7 degrees C (55 F) at night to 26 C (78 F) at noon, and averages 15 C (64 F). There are two seasons, wet and dry. The wet season is called winter and the dry is considered summer. Quito's summer lasts about 4 months, from the end of June to September.
Quito sees its fair share of rain from October through May, though even during this period the climate supports a multitude of diversions.
There are enough sunny days during the rainy season to accommodate all but the most insatiable sun worshipers, and when the sun hides, Quito has plenty to offer indoors
