Ecuador may be one of the smallest countries in South America, but it contains many of the continent’s greatest treasures, making it one of the most ecologically diverse countries of its size in the world. Often described as a tasting menu for South America, Ecuador is an ideal destination for travelers seeking a variety of experiences within a limited vacation period.
The mighty mountains and snow-capped volcanoes of the Andes dominate the central region and are home to charming villages full of ancient crafts, markets and traditions. At its heart is the capital city of Quito, with a beautifully preserved colonial neighborhood and a wealth of food, art and cultural experiences. Another gateway to the country is the city of Guayaquil, a port city on the Pacific coast that also offers historic neighborhoods, fine museums, and great cuisine.
In the eastern corner of the country, and just a 35-minute flight from Quito, the Amazon jungle needs no introduction. The lesser-known Choco cloud forest is just north of Quito (a 2-3 hour drive) and is home to hundreds of species of birds, cascading waterfalls and hidden trails.
