Why visit Ecuador?

Ecuador is one of South America’s best-kept secrets. While it’s the second smallest country on the South American continent, Ecuador offers natural diversity and wildlife you won’t find anywhere else. In Ecuador you can drive from the steamy jungle of the Amazon basin, past snow capped Andean volcanoes, through tropical cloud forest and arrive on the warm equatorial Pacific coast – all in a day.
