Country – Ecuador

What it feels like to be there…

Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands inspired Darwin to write his most famous work, The Origin of Species. The natural environment is so rich and varied it really is quite unlike any other. The rest of the country also serves to fascinate and entertain, with its mountains, plains, jungle and dramatic coastline offering adventures aplenty.

Some practical information worth knowing…

Capital Quito and Guayaquil in the south are the main airport hubs for the country, though Seymour Airport in the Galapagos also has a few international flights to Columbia, Panama and Miami, USA. Its equatorial location means weather is not especially seasonal, though the El Niño effect very occasionally brings huge downpours.
