Why Ecuador?

Ecuador is a microcosm, encompassing a huge variety of geographical environments in very close
proximity in addition to a wealth of disctinct cultures who ha
ve formed unique relationships with these
environments. From the Amazon jungle in the East, to the spine of the Andes Mountains down the center,
to the Pacific coast on the West and the Galapagos Islands archepelago in the Pacific ocean, there is so
much t
o see, and one can travel from snow
capped volcanos to cloud forest or jungle in a matter of
hours. And with over 17 distinct indigenous groups with 14 unique languages, there is a wealth of culture
to explore and learn about.
