Ecuador – A Biodiversity Hotspot
Home to the Galápagos Islands, coastal beaches, raging rivers, Amazonian rainforests, and the Andes Mountains, Ecuador offers myriad opportunities for adventure-travel and ecotourism enthusiasts. Located on the equator, on South America’s Pacific coast, the country’s unique geography makes it one of the world’s most biodiverse nations. Its relatively small size means that it’s easy to explore in a short period of time. Quito is the capital city and the Inca Empire’s ancient seat of government; it is also home to two million of the country’s 14 million people.
