Exploring unique cultural experiences, while having fun with all the family is important when planning a family holiday to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.
Flexibility is one of Geo Reisen’s mottos. We include in our programs plenty of activities for families with children, and even in the bustling colonial city of Quito, there are activities for all.
In and around Quito, these activities include the Chocolate Museum, where everyone can taste three different types of what is considered high-quality chocolate in the world. A mandatory stop is at an artisanal ice cream store whose “Helado de Paila” ice cream recipe is often passed down from elders to the new generations. Something exciting and traditional for children is to attend a spinning top workshop, where children learn how a top is manufactured and thrown. Going to the Yaku Museum (“Water” in Quichua language) is an educational and fun activity, where families have many interactive experiences related to the importance of preserving and using water responsibly. The International Cultural and Scientific Museum, located at the exact point through which the equator passes through, is the place where exciting science experiments are done. Another experience that will leave lifelong positive memories is a cooking class in an ancient hacienda surrounded by one of the highest snowcapped volcanoes of the world – the Cotopaxi Volcano. Families learn the secrets of national cuisine, using traditional, regional utensils and ingredients from many cities in Ecuador.
