Ecuador Hop welcomes passengers from every corner of the world. We're popular with visitors from Canada, Germany, USA, China, Brazil, South Korea, France, Australia and many, many more! In some other countries, the hop on hop off concept is primarily associated with younger backpackers, but we pride ourselves on creating an environment that is enjoyed by all age groups. The average age of our passengers is between 25-35 years old, but we've also hosted many families as well as older people in their 70s or 80s. Often our older passengers appreciate the youthful energy that our younger passengers bring, while the younger passengers appreciate the life experience and knowledge of the older passengers.

Why Ecuador Hop Is Perfect For YOU

The whole concept of Peru Hop is to discover the real Peru, in a safe and flexible way, no matter your traveling style, age, or who you’re traveling with!


Ecuador Hop offers amazing discounts on private rooms in hostels and hotels at Cotopaxi and Baños. Most agencies receive commission for booking rooms, but we refuse this commission and use it as a discount for you instead! That means you'll get the best rooms at the best prices--one more benefit of hopping with us!

Solo Travelers

Ecuador Hop is a favorite choice among solo travelers (especially female) due to our unbeatable safety record. There are no unsafe taxis or dangerous bus stations to worry about when you ride our buses.

The friendly atmosphere on Ecuador Hop buses is also a perfect opportunity for meeting other travelers. Many of our passengers make new friends onboard and end up continuing their travels together in Peru or Colombia.
