About Ecuador

EcuadorgalapagosNEVADO(5)

Ecuador is not a large country but still fantastic to visit. Go and see the lamas in the Andes or watch the pirayas in the rainforest. Here you find a multitude of old, colonial churches and you absolutely have to visit one of the indian villages in the jungle. Everything is ”close” ni Ecuador with so much to offer when it comes to nature and experiences.
