Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
In the equatorial zone of the Andes lies the Republic of Ecuador, famous, first of all, for its unique natural riches. National parks, mountain lakes, waterfalls, volcanoes and, of course, the amazing Galapagos Islands are not a complete list of natural sites in Ecuador, which are definitely worth visiting in this country.
Connoisseurs of urban tourism will love the organic combination of the ancient Inca heritage with the cultural traditions of the Spanish conquerors. Many examples of colonial architecture have been preserved in the cities of Ecuador. And lovers of beach holidays should choose such resorts as Montañita, Salinas, Los Frailes and the beach of Atacames canton.
On the territory of the country there are several Indian tribes, for visiting which you can order special excursion tours. The Republic of Ecuador is considered one of the safest countries in South America, but, as everywhere else, tourists should be wary of pickpocketing and fraud.
