To Do in Ecuador : Nature

No matter where in Ecuador you decide to go or what you decide to do. This South-American country's nature is not only mind-blowing, but also incredibly diverse.


If you’re interested in nature and thinking of a vacation to Ecuador, you’re definitely considering the right place. 
Through this page, you’ll get a good idea of what to do and where to go. At the Pacific Coast, you’ll find impressive beaches and you may spot a whale or two. The Amazon jungle is perfect for spotting wildlife. Or, if you’d like to admire snow topped volcanoes, the Andes should be your destination. But above all, if you’re a nature lover, the tropical Galapagos Islands have to be on your bucket list.


“The Galapagos Islands are so remote, that humans have left it alone long enough to still have an incredible variety of rare species (which are not afraid of humans). 

When Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835, this amazed him so much that it inspired him for his evolution theory.”
