Travel Tips for visiting Quito

Between Colombia and Peru, Ecuador, a small country as big as half of France, stretches from the Pacific to the Amazon, spanning the Andes mountain range, here called Sierra. There is no more altiplano here, but a chaotic, highly volcanic relief, made of snow-capped cones, páramo (a kind of highland pampa) and checkerboard fields covering the highest slopes. In spite of its modest size, Ecuador offers an astonishing palette of landscapes and cultures. It is a country divided into 3 distinct regions: the Pacific coast, the Andes and the Ecuadorian Amazon. In addition, there are the Galapagos Islands, a unique wildlife reservoir in the world. If the Indians of the Sierra have largely preserved their Andean customs, the people of the coast seem to be closer to Caribbean customs. In Amazonia, the inhabitants fight for their territory, threatened by the oil industry and deforestation. As for the city dwellers of Ecuador, most of them of mixed race, they have long since adopted the Western way of life. As almost everywhere in South America, the Church continues to play a big role and military coups have followed one another here… If archaeological remains and colonial architecture are much less present in Ecuador than in Peru, this lack is partly compensated by the richness of the historical centers of Quito and Cuenca, the beauty of the landscapes and the astonishing biodiversity, in particular in Amazonia and in the Galapagos Islands. In short, the main reasons for a trip to Ecuador? This beautiful natural variety, combined with the authenticity of the welcome and a still moderate tourism... For a first trip to Latin America, Ecuador is an ideal entry point.
