Panamericana, Pacific, Andes and Amazon

We will travel through the Pacific coast, the Andes and the Amazon region, three of the four major environments of Ecuador on our tour through one of the most diversified countries of the world. The Galapagos Islands are not part of our tour but if you like to extend your vacation, you could add them as well.
Ecuador has a lot to offer and is a very safe country which has proven to have a stable government for over ten years. American dollars are used as currency in Ecuador. You do have to get used to the 50 cent coin. Even theoutlets are the same as in the USA. You will enjoy introducing your pallet to a variety of exciting food throughout the tour. MAXimal Tours is proud to represent the fine hotels we will lodge in. Let us take you on an adventure into the southern hemisphere over the equator to Ecuador; the motorcycle paradise in the northwest of South America.

ITINERARY – MAXimal Ecuador Tour 2018

Day 1

Arrival in Quito

Day 2

Quito
Quito is the main capital of Ecuador with an elevation of 9200 feet and therefore the highest capital city in the world. From Quito you will have a great view to the Vulcan Cotopaxi. One of the attraction of Quito is the old city, dating back to the 16th century and has been named a World Heritage Site since 1979.

Day 3

Quito – Mitad del Mundo (center of the world) – Santo Domingo
Twenty-three (23) Kilometers north of Quito is the “Center of the World.” Charles Marie de La Condamine, as the first European, during a French expedition in 1736, determined that Mitad del Mundo was the exact location of the Equator. However, today we know that he was 240 meters off. We will continue our tour on a very curvy road towards Santo Domingo; our overnight stop on the way to the Pacific coast.

Day 4

Santo Domingo – Bahia de Caraquez
Our ride will continue toward and along the Pacific coast of Ecuador. The 2016 earthquake in this region caused a lot of damage. Fortunately, the hotel we will be staying in had very little damage and is once again in excellent condition. We will be riding on the “Panamerica Highway” and revisit this famous road many times during our tour.

Day 5

Bahia de Caraquez – Puerto Cayo
Today we will follow the Pacific coast until we arrive in Puerto Cayo. The hotel is right by the pacific ocean so that we can enjoy the view of the surf in the evening. The hotel is the best in the area. The owner will treat us to fantastic Ecuadorian cuisine is you so desire.

Day 6

Puerto Caya – Quevedo
We will be leaving the first of the four environments of Ecuador, the Pacific coast and ride towards the east. We will stop for the night in Quevedo which is at the foot of the Andes. Quevedo is also called the Chinatown of Ecuador. Let’s see what surprises this city will present us.

Day 7

Quevedo – Banos
Our ride to Banos is very diverse and has, like all sections on this tour, countless curves. After a few days of riding you will have the feeling that there are no straight roads in Ecuador. As we leave Quevedo you will notice that we will constantly ride uphill until we arrive at Quilotoa, where we will visit the crater lake at approximately 13,000 feet.
Banos, our evening destination, is at a lower elevation of 5,900 feet and a very culturally inviting city with a beautiful church. Banos is known for its many natural springs and baths.

Day 8

Banos – Cuenca
We will be leaving the idyllic Banos and ride to the Andes capital city of Cuenca. An amazing riding day is waiting for us with lots of curves and mountain roads. Cuenca is the most European-like city in Ecuador. You will feel as if you have stepped into Madrid or Milan. Cuenca is considered the most beautiful city in all of South America. You will find many fine restaurants and boutiques.

Day 9

Cuenca – Macas
The third environment of Ecuador, the Amazon, is waiting for us. You will notice that not only the environment changes dramatically but the people will as well. The natives are shorter in stature. They have adapted their lifestyle to natural environment. The main highway the E45 of Ecuador will lead us to Macas. The word “highway,” can be misleading. We will be riding innumerable curves for your biking pleasure.

Day 10

Macas – Puerto Misahualli
Our ride today will lead us along banana- and cacao plantations. In this region, people live with the bare minimum that is necessary to survive. Luxury items are not part of their lifestyle. A cow, a pig, a roof over your head and cacao are all that are needed to keep the natives very happy and satisfied. Puerto Misahualli is alongside the river Napo. In order to arrive at our hotel we have to cross the Napo river using boats. At the harbor, monkeys, the local wild life, will watch us boarding the boats. They are fun but be careful with your shiny
things. Monkeys like to steel shiny things!!!

Day 11

Puerto Misahualli –Quito
We will ride many more curves ascending through the mountains to Quito. Sadly, this will be our last day of riding. We will return the motorcycles to our BMW partners in Quito.

Day 12

Departure from Mariscal Secure International Airport Quito

At the end of a MAXimal Tours trip, we see the word “END” with sad eyes. As always, we at MAXimal tours hope that we have become friends during this journey and that we will meet outside of our tours as well. That’s the difference that you will find riding with MAXimal Tours.

Panamerican Highway and Vulcans … all you need is Ecuador.

Vaccination and Health Risks

Your doctor can give you important advice and prescribe vaccines and medications to help you stay safe while traveling abroad. 

  • To have the most benefit, see a doctor at least 4-6 weeks before your trip to allow time for your vaccines to take effect. If you are leaving sooner, it is still important to see a doctor as soon as possible for vaccines, medications and information about how to protect yourself from illness and injury while traveling.
  • Your doctor will make specific recommendations, depending on your health and immunization history, areas of the country you will be visiting, planned activities and other factors. If your travel plans will take you to more than one country during a single trip, be sure to let your health-care provider know. Long-term travelers, such as those who plan to work or study abroad, may also need additional vaccinations as required by their employer or school.
  • If you have a chronic medical condition, share your travel plans with any doctors who are currently treating you.

Please be aware of the elevation in the Andes region Days 3 – 5 (up to 13,000′ but only for short period / no overnight stay) Quito (9350′). Pacific region and Amazon not high elevated.
We suggest an earlier arrival to climatize.
Ask your doctor for advice.
