There is more to this country than the Galápagos Islands

Ecuador is not hugely known. Until you mention the Galápagos Islands. But Ecuador has so much more to offer. Like the Amazon, volcanoes, and its capital Quito, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. A perfect travel destination.

The Galápagos Islands in Ecuador are world-famous. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and see evolution in action. The islands are a national park, where wildlife rules.

But Ecuador has a great diversity of landscapes on offer. Think of the humid rainforest at Sangay National Park. Or the impressive Andes Mountains.

And don’t forget its capital: Quito. Its historic center still looks like it did a hundred years ago and it is obviously listed by UNESCO World Heritage for this reason. The diversity of Ecuador is a South-American experience to the fullest.
