They say Ecuador is four worlds in one….in a country the size of Colorado. The Galapagos Islands, Pacific Coast, Andes Mountains, and Amazon Jungle are all packed into this South American country making it one of the most stunning places we’ve ever been. Not only does its small size allow you to experience a ton of diverse places in a short amount of time, but Ecuador is super affordable, four hours from Miami, and uses the U.S. dollar to make it extra convenient. After a month here, we can confirm Ecuador holds up to the bold four-worlds claim and give it an extra nod for super-friendly people and adventure at every turn (intentional or not). We love Ecuador, which is all the more reason we need to give them a little razzing. You know you’re in Ecuador when…
– No matter the time of the year, the temperature only fluctuates few degrees, the sunset is within a few minutes each day, and you weigh a little less along the equator. Score!
– The country invents one of the most classic hat styles of all time…and Panama gets all the credit!
– A “vegetarian meal” just means a smaller portion of pork
