What to do in Quito?

What to do in Ecuador?

Ecuador is considered one of the most mega-diverse countries on the planet, for this reason, it is called the country of the four worlds, thanks to the fact that its Andean mountains are combined with the coasts, as well as with the Amazon jungle and its incomparable Galapagos Islands.

The Galapagos Islands are a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. Charles Darwin visited it in 1835 and his observation of species inspired his theory of evolution. Galapagos is the second largest marine reserve on the planet, so its flora and fauna are considered unique and exceptional in the world.

The Andean region extends from north to south through the Andes and is characterized by its impressive mountainous elevations, volcanoes and snow-capped mountains. Chimborazo is located 150 km southwest of Quito, and, thanks to its 6,263 meters above sea level, it is considered the closest point to the sun from the earth.

Forests, mangroves, fertile plains and low elevations are part of this region. On the coasts of the Pacific Ocean there are warm, wide and beautiful beaches, which in turn are important ports.

The Amazon region covers an approximate area of ​​120 thousand km of the Amazon, it extends over an exuberant vegetation typical of the humid – tropical forests. Here is the Yasuní National Park, the largest protected area in continental Ecuador that protects an impressive biodiversity of species.
