Few countries are as small and diverse as Ecuador.
From the shores of the Pacific, up to the snows of the Andes, and back down again to the jungles of the Amazon, it offers the traveller a bottomless wealth of possibilities...
For the adrenaline-deprived,
you have white-water rafting, mountain climbing and cross-country biking. Or else less strenuous horseback rides among remote villages, birdwatching in cloudforests, hiking the highlands and trekking rainforest trails.
More sedate still, wander its colonial churches and towns, observe its unique wildlife, enjoy its cuisine or sink into the lap of luxury at one of its country haciendas. Beaches, it has too, aplenty. As Charles Darwin wrote of the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador "seems to be a little world within itself."

Little? Certainly.
But also, without doubt, a world within itself.
