As one of the smallest countries in South America, part of Ecuador’s charm is its compact size. The Amazon Basin is a day’s drive from the Andean peaks that form the Avenue of the Volcanoes; the Pacific Coastal plains just a hop, skip and a jump from the Indian markets of the highlands. Ecuador’s four regions- the Andes, Amazon, Pacific Coast and Galapagos- encompass an incredible variety of flora and fauna.
A highlight of any trip to South America! Unique wildlife and spectacular volcanic landscapes; a ‘showcase of evolution’.
A colonial gem, UNESCO Heritage listed Quito is filled with fascinating museums, contemporary galleries and stunning boutique hotels.
