Updated Jan 2nd
Ecuador’s land and sea borders remain closed to foreigners. Arriving by air:
Travellers must present a negative COVID PCR test result for entry; the test must
be taken within 72 hours before departure, as well as the covid 19 vaccination certificate
Ecuador has no quarantine/self-isolation requirements
Life in Our Hostel:
The Secret Garden complies with all relevant covid-19 requirements. We have a large hostel and to
enable social distancing we ensure that the hostel is never more than 50% full.
Travelling in Ecuador:
Ecuador is continuing to ease up on the various covid restrictions. Most of
the tourism infrastructure (hostels, restaurants, national parks, tourist attractions, public
transport/intercity buses, flights to Galapagos etc.) has re-opened over the past couple of months.
The Secret Garden Cotopaxi is also open, and while things are still a bit quiet -we are offering some
great long stay discounts. E.g. 7 nights in a dorm incl all meals, snacks, tea, coffee etc. and some free
tours from $140, incl tax.
