Loja & Southern Ecuador holidays

Loja, Ecuador’s southernmost province, is still undiscovered by mainstream tourism. The charming provincial capital is steeped in history, and the picturesque valley of Vilcabamba is dotted with a quilted patchwork of orchards, cattle pastures, corn and sugar cane fields. Podocarpus National Park is home to 600 bird species, while the local indigenous Saraguro community maintains age-old traditions and dress.

The Pacific coast offers long stretches of sand and wildlife refuges, such as the Machalilla National Park and Isla de la Plata, home to iguanas and blue- and red-footed boobies. Humpback whales can be spotted from mid-June to October.
