Ecuador is a country in South America that derives its name from the equator, which it straddles. Ecuador also includes the lovely Galápagos Islands in the Pacific, and is home to the world’s highest active volcano, Cotopaxi. It is also home to several world heritage sites and has a rich history, which can be seen in many of its cities. Ecuador travel is a must for beach-seeking backpacker, avid historian, or anyone who wants to experience the most bio diverse place on the planet.
There are festivals held throughout the year and with a varied climate across destinations, the major consideration for Ecuador travel is the destination. The coast rotates between wet and dry, and the best time for Ecuador vacations is between December and May, when temperatures are slightly cooler despite more rain. The dry season of June to December is the best time of year to visit the Andes region while August to November is the best time to visit the Oriente Region. Galapagos Island sea tortoise and sea lion nesting occurs during the warm rainy season, whereas albatrosses and penguins arrive in the cold and dry months.
