The geography of Ecuador is unique in the world. The territory is crossed by a range of mountains that goes along the country from north to south called "Andes" dividing the land and forming three different continental regions: the highlands up on the mountains, west from the Andes by the Pacific Ocean is the Coast Region, and on the East we can find the Amazon, each of them with its own climate and biodiversity, gastronomy and culture.


Three different worlds in ONE Country!! This is Ecuador:    

COAST, HIGHLANDS AND AMAZON

             




No far from the main land, just 972 km from the coast of Ecuador, there is one of the most incredible places in earth, home of a great diversity of species of animals and plants that have adapted themselves to live in these volcanic land formed about 5 million years ago, evolving through the time to give origin to this fantastic ecosystem considered a Natural Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1979, becoming one of the treasures protected by Ecuador for the world.







The Galapagos Islands are made by 13 main islands, 6 medium size islands and more than 200 islets of small size, every single place with its unique diversity and beauty.
The origin of the islands is volcanic, product of the tectonic activity and is consider the second most active volcanic archipelago in the world after Hawaii, having still islands in formation like Isabela and Fernandina every one with a few active volcanoes in eruption now.
