What Ecuador may lack in size compared to its larger South American neighbors it more than makes up for in its rich culture, eventful past and fascinatingly varied landscapes. Its compact size makes it ideal for travelers and as a result, it is one of South America's most popular destinations. Here you can view some of the continent's finest colonial architecture alongside thriving indigenous cultures, as well as alien like volcanic landscapes next to dense tropical rainforests. Ecuador is one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world so you are guaranteed fantastic wildlife watching opportunities whether in its jungles or on its mountains and beaches.
For those with a passion for the outdoors, Ecuador is ideal. Its vast jungles and mountainous landscape make it excellent for trekking. Those who are fit enough and have a head for heights can climb Chimborazo in the Cotopaxi National Park, the country's tallest volcano at 6310 meters. At Mitad del Mundo, a monument to the equator, you can place one foot in either hemisphere. Cuenca is Ecuador's third largest city and is a great place to witness the grand constructions of the colonial era alongside leftover Incan ruins.
Having experienced Ecuador's cities and magnificent mountainous landscape you can wile away the days on one of its pristine beaches. The country's position on the equator makes the Pacific Ocean warm and welcoming year round and ideal for scuba-diving and snorkeling. Alternatively, simply relax on the beach and soak up the sun in this tropical paradise.
