Ecuador has many small newer eco lodges in the rain forest. Many of the local indigenous tribes have opened small lodges to protect the rain forest from gold mining and oil exploration. It's a way to protect these areas from destruction and exploitation and prptect the great bio diversity of the area.
Most people who go to Ecuador want to see the Galapagos Islands. We offer a unique way of seeing them by staying on individual islands and doing day trips. We use a lodge called Red Mangrove Lodge which has a good commitment to protect the environment and interaction with the local community
