ECU

SMILE. YOU’VE LANDED IN ECUADOR.

Although Ecuador is one of South America’s smallest nations—roughly the size of Colorado—its beauty is totally out of proportion to its size. The country is an experiment in compact loveliness; no space has been wasted. Each turn brings an unforgettable encounter, a stunning vista or the adventure of a lifetime.

Ecuador is really four different destinations magically melded together. The Andes divide the mainland north-south into three regions: The Pacific Coast, Andean Sierra, and Amazon Basin.

The country’s fourth region, the Galapagos Islands, is 600 miles offshore.

Each region has its own spirit and attractions. Each will make you wish you had more vacation time.

MACHU PICCHU

First light at Machu Picchu is an unforgettable experience. At dawn, the site is often concealed by low clouds. As the sun rises, the mists slowly dissipate to reveal walls and plazas — first in glimpses, then in majesty.
