Ecuador  Tourism Website

All You Need is Ecuador

The website offers brief descriptions of places and things to do in Ecuador, from the mountains to the Galapagos.  The “Where to go” section is nicely divided into four main regions:  Galapagos, Amazon, Andes and Pacific Coast.   The only problem is there is no overview – you either have to know already what you are looking for or joke poke around on the site in order to gather information.   But the programing is sophisticated and the pictures are beautiful.

From the website:

Galapagos Tortoise

“Close to Puyo there is a rock formation known as “El Pailon del Diablo “. The three falls of water that form this waterfall not only make it a beautiful landscape but also you can feel the emotion of contemplating the force of the current. Be excited with the Pailon del Diablo, be excited with Ecuador. ”
