Ecuador may be a tiny country, but its geographical diversity is staggering and changes dramatically from its eastern to western borders. Its bio-diverse Amazon rain-forest is alive with swooping scarlet macaws and spider monkeys bouncing off virgin canopy’s. Up in the culturally rich highland area, colorful Indian markets, smoking volcanoes and striking colonial towns are in abundance. The Andes then slip way to the lush coastal area. Far out in the Pacific Ocean lies the submerged volcanic peaks of the Galapagos Islands, a sanctuary for unique wildlife.

Ecuador can be visited year-round, and the weather in the highlands varies little, Jun-Sep(and Dec) being the driest months. The Amazon is always hot and humid(25°c) and rainfall frequent. Jan-may is hot and wet in the Galapagos (24-28°c) where you can expect short, sharp showers; temperatures cool to 18-20°c between Jun-Dec and strong winds during Aug-Sept can me the waters choppy ( some boats may in dry-dock).
