Ice-covered volcanoes under your feet, primordial Incan grounds, and a plethora of fauna and flora on the Galápagos Islands are some main aspects of celebrated Ecuadorian surroundings. The adventurous should not merely look to this country as a remote South American coastal country. You’ll enjoy Volcán Chimborazo, the highest point from earth’s center, an awesome sight throughout the whole of the country. The city life in Ecuador too parallels the richness of the natural environment. Street acrobatics in the old section of Quito and lively “El Centro,” the contemporary wonder Malecon del Salado and colorful Parque Centenario in Guayaquil—the Pearl of the Pacific, Cathedral domed skyline of Cuenca, and vibrant woven cloths at the Indian Craft Market in Otavalo, will have you not wanting to leave.
