A holiday to Ecuador offers a spectacular and diverse array of natural wonders, from Amazonian rainforest to the snowy peaks of the Andes. Its capital Quito is one of the highest in the world, located at 9,000 feet above sea level, and as you explore its Old Town you’ll get a fascinating glimpse into its Spanish colonial past. The Mindo cloud forest is a must-visit, and it literally buzzes with the sounds of nature. The sights you’ll see here will stay with you forever as you tick off hummingbirds and toucans, orchids and waterfalls. And of course, Ecuador is the gateway to the incredible Galapagos Islands, where many of the creatures you’ll see exist nowhere else on earth.
