The Galapagos Islands
A place of unparalleled natural wonder. The Galapagos Islands just off the coast of Ecuador will fascinate you with their unique landscapes and amazing biodiversity. Walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and marvel at the vast array of fauna that calls this place home. Giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies and penguins thrive in these isolated islands, unfazed by the cameras of curious tourists.
At 9,300 feet above sea level, Quito, the capital city of Ecuador, is located in the heart of the Andes, just south of the Equatorial Line. The city has a beautiful setting in a valley surrounded by soaring volcanoes. It`s Old Town colonial district boats spectacular churches, notable religious artwork, and charming little streets, which gave the city a UNESCO World Heritage designation in 1978.
Guayaquil is a passionate place with welcoming people, music playing throughout the streets and local cuisine behind every corner. The hillsides are decorated with colorful buildings and monuments proudly stand as proof of prosperity, with newly added parks and green perfect for enjoying the warm, equatorial climate.
Discover Cuenca and be enchanted by its colonial charm. The city, located in the highlands of Ecuador at about 2,560 meters (8,400 feet) above sea level, is considered the most European city in the country due to its 16th and 17th century era Spanish influence that is evident throughout the province`s colonial architecture. With all its rich history and character, including cobblestone streets, tall cathedrals and white-washed buildings, Cuenca has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
