If combining diving with culture and history is the name of your holiday game then look no further than Ecuador.
Ecuador may be small but it's most certainly mighty. It packs in charming colonial cities, ancient ruins from the Inca Empire and a quite startling diversity of landscapes and wildlife.
And then of course there is the country's jewel in the crown, especially for divers, the Galapagos Islands. Six hundred miles out in the Pacific Ocean lie the fascinating islands, the catalyst for Darwin's theory of evolution. We have visited the islands on several occasions, and know the best boats for every type of trip from family holidays to dive safaris.
