About Ecuador

Ecuador, officially known as the Republic of Ecuador, is located in South America's western corner, stretching along the equator from where it derives its name. With a diverse landscape that spans the Amazon rainforest, high-altitude Andean highlands, and the spectacular, wildlife-filled Galápagos Islands, Ecuador is a haven of biodiversity. Its capital, Quito, renowned for its well-preserved colonial center, grand plazas, and church-filled skyline, is perched at an elevation of 2,850 meters above sea level, making it the second-highest official capital city in the world. Guayaquil, the country's largest city, is the commercial hub bustling with vivacity. Ecuador's population of approximately 17 million is a cultural mosaic with a mix of indigenous, mestizo, Afro-Ecuadorian, and white ethnic groups. Spanish is the official language, although Quichua, Shuar and other native languages are spoken by the indigenous people. The country's economy relies heavily on exports of oil, bananas, shrimp, gold, and other agricultural products cultivated in its fertile lands. Ecuador's rich and varied cuisine reflects its diverse geographical and cultural conditions, from hearty highland dishes to a vast array of seafood on the coast. From exploring ancient Inca ruins and colonial towns to hiking active volcanoes or diving in the world-renowned Galápagos National Park, Ecuador offers a wealth of experiences.
