Andean cloud forests. The jungles of the Amazon. Pristine beaches along the Pacific, and breathtaking snow-capped volcanoes and mountains. In a single country, it could only be Ecuador.
Ecuador, taken from the word equator, serves as the perfect name for a nation that sits right between the modern world and a bygone era. Travel to Quito, the nation’s capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its striking views of snow-capped volcanoes and its historically stunning Old Town. Or explore Guayaquil, a bustling, beautiful port city.
