Ecuador

Ecuador, on the west coast of South America is the most biodiverse country in the world boasting over a hundred types of hummingbird and multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites. As it straddles the equator, make sure you travel to the ‘Middle of the World’ – the Equatorial Line Monument – where you can stand with one foot in each hemisphere at the same time.

Proud home to the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador is known for its rich ecology – be that its Andean mountain range, the Amazon rainforest or its endemic plants and animals of the islands. Pop across the water and start island-hopping to see giant tortoises in their natural habitat, spot an iconic land iguana and enjoy watching blue footed boobies diving in to the water.

Ecuadorean cuisine is as diverse as its landscape with each province having its own special flavour native to that region. The Galápagos Islands are no different where canchalagua and lobster are common site. Other popular ingredients on the mainland include pork, beef, and cuy (guinea pig) in the highlands whilst seafood such as shrimp, octopus and ceviche are key parts of the coastal regions’ diet.

So whether it’s gastronomic variety or the rich biodiversity that appeals, Ecuador won’t let you down on either. View more trips to Ecuador.
