Why Visit Ecuador?
Ecuador may be small by South America’s standards, but it definitely packs a punch with regards to natural wonders. First to mind is the world-famous Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador, where giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies, and sea lions parade like nature’s own catwalk models for all to admire.
But Ecuador vacation packages don’t finish there; this is a land of extremes, with the legendary biodiversity of the cloud forest of Mindo and Yasuni National Park in the Ecuadorian Amazon, the waterfalls of Baños, and the active Cotopaxi and other volcanoes of the Andes Mountains, home to colorful indigenous markets and some of the best UNESCO World Heritage sites in Latin America in the form of the historical old towns of Quito and Cuenca.
