It is very difficult to believe that such a tiny country in South America can have such a natural diversity and all the fun that comes with it. Although it is the second smallest country in South America, it is packed with attractions and natural wonders. In a single day´s road trip, you can drive through Amazons and reach to Cotopaxi, world´s highest active volcano. But these aren´t the only natural wonders in Ecuador, almost the whole country is Unesco World Heritage Site. For nature lovers, Ecuador is the ultimate paradise. Besides from spying on monkeys in Amazon jungle or a world class trekking on the mountains with amazing views, you have to see the amazing Galapagos Islands. No matter what you do, the beauty of Ecuador will astonish you in every step.
