Hola and welcome to the tropics, where the beaches are plentiful and the awesomeness is flowing like a glass of Colada de avena (awesome traditional fruit smoothy).
Travelling in Ecuador is like travelling in a compact version of the whole of South America.
You can see the Andes, climb volcanoes, head to the beach, go wild in the Amazon jungle, hang out with llamas and of course see the incredible wildlife of the Galapagos Islands. If shopping is your thing there’s the Otavalo market town, if adventure sport is your thing there’s Banos (not to be confused with the Spanish word for toilet, which is also banos).
If evolution is your thing, there are the incredible Galapagos Islands. For the foodie there are hundreds of ways to eat chicken, beans and guinea pig (yeah, guinea pig).
And if you like parties that don’t start until midnight and don’t finish until the fireworks go off, Ecuador is your kind of place.
What people say
The Galapagos is a once in a lifetime trip. The boat is not a cruise liner so don't expect 5-star dining or huge rooms, but it is excellent! Amazing to see all the wildlife, incredible. Freddie the naturalist was great, informative, but didn't treat us like babies. It's good to be able to do your own thing sometimes on a tour.

Quito to Lima Adventure, February 2017
This was a great introduction to Ecuador, and South America! Everyone in Ecuador was very friendly, and I loved learning more about the history and culture of the country.
