MORE INFO ABOUT ECUADOR
What Ecuador lacks in bulk – only Guyana, Uruguay and Suriname are smaller in South America – it compensates in natural beauty and cultural attractions.
Quito, the second-highest capital in the world, is where most begin. Start with an overview of the city by taking the TelefériQo cable car to the Cruz Loma lookout. Return to the city to start exploring the landmarks, including the gold-bellied church, Iglesia La Compañía de Jesús, and the National Museum of Ecuador. Finish with foodie kicks in the trendy La Floresta neighbourhood.
