Ecuador might be one of the smallest countries in South America, but the size is compensated by the magnificent nature and colorful culture. This country is known for its tropical rainforests, the fresh mountain air of the Andes and the iguanas of the Galapagos Islands - but also for its busy markets and friendly people.
