Despite its small size, Ecuador packs a punch with its natural wonders and leads the way in sustainable ecotourism. Many visitors flock to the fascinating Galapagos Islands, but it’s well worth stopping in mainland Ecuador on the way to explore other scenic gems – Amazon rainforest, Andes mountains and Pacific coast as well as the beautiful heritage cities.
