Ecuador may be small but it certainly packs some punch. With a bit of mountains, bit of jungle, bit of colonial history and some colourful indigenous culture, this is a destination that brings together the best bits of the continent. Throw in the ability to straddle the hemispheres with a visit to the equator and the unique and incredible biodiversity of the renowned Galapagos Islands, and Ecuador earns its place on any self-respecting travel bucket list.
