From the towering Andes to volcanic Galápagos, uncover the best of South America in Ecuador

The soundtrack to Ecuador is like a collection of South America's greatest hits; the crunch of leaves under foot as an exotic animal wakes from its afternoon slumber, the piercing cries of colourful birds in the misty Amazon, the bellows of far-off smoldering volcanoes and the rhythmic clatter of sluggish trains rumbling along rickety mountain-side tracks. There's the gentle ripple of Pacific coast waves lapping a tranquil golden beach, the flutter of pigeon wings in a leafy colonial era square, the hauntingly beautiful harmonies of traditional Andean music and the hustle and bustle of markets in sleepy hillside villages. Ecuador brings together everything the continent does best into one neat little package, teeming with wildlife, decorated with colonial gems and packed with miles upon miles of verdant rainforest. Best of all though, are the magnificent Galápagos Islands waiting to be discovered offshore, taking you closer to nature than you ever thought possible.
