Ecuador is the ideal destination to do adventure tourism. Within the country you can mountain climb in the Andes, rafting and kayaking in the rivers of the Highlands and the Eastern Mountain range, water skiing on the Pacific coasts or in the Galapagos, paraglide or hang glide from the slopes of Pichincha, etc.

Quito, because of its centric location in respect to the rest of the country, is an excellent place to plan these types of trips and organize your trips with the different travel agencies and also acquire necessary equipment.

In order to do trips to the different regions of the country and to practice extreme sports, Quito offers specialized stores of this type to purchase equipment of any kind.

The prices for the implements for these types of activities differ depending on the activity. Prices for specialized equipment are relatively expensive and you need to know the best brands.

Depending on the activity, a set of full equipment for your activity can easily surpass the 100 dollars.

For example, a helmet costs from 24 to 36 dollars, a pair of gloves costs 9 to 29 dollars, cycling suits 36 to 39 dollars, jerseys 36 to 39 dollars, tubes, pumps and patches for a bicycle 14 to 31 dollars.
