Ecuador is a country on South America’s west coast. Its diverse landscape encompasses the Amazon jungle with its rainforests, the Andean highlands and the wildlife-rich Galápagos Islands. In the Andean foothills at an elevation of 2,850m, Quito, the capital, is known for its largely intact Spanish colonial center, with decorated 16th- and 17th-century palaces and religious sites.

For those seeking adventure, Ecuador offers cycling, hiking, wellness and yoga retreats in the Amazon rainforests, the Galapagos, Montanitia, Puerto Ayora and Santa Cruz, to name a few.
