I’ve been reading so many good things about Ecuador lately, I decided to fly down and check it out for myself. From snow-capped volcanoes to dense Amazon jungle, from sun-drenched Pacific beaches to the famous Galapagos Islands, this is a place of astounding natural beauty. Ecuador is perhaps the most biodiverse country in the world. Despite covering a mere 0.02 percent of the world’s landmass, it is home to 10 percent of the world’s plant and animal species. Ecuador has more than 100 different types of hummingbirds!
