Earthquake Update

On April 16, Ecuador's central coast was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Thankfully, travel has not been impacted, as the epicenter was far from all of Ecuador's major travel destinations and airports. Columbus Travel has operated 100% normally and there should be no current or future impact on our clients' itineraries.

One way you can help Ecuador in the recovery is by travelling to Ecuador. Income from tourism is an important part of the national economy and an important part of the recovery process.
