Airports in Ecuador
Pound for pound, Ecuador is the most rewarding travel destination in South America. Travelers can look forward to extraordinary topography, a tapestry of vibrant cultures, a vast array of adventure sports, colonial architecture, and abundant flora and fauna all within a nation approximately the size of Switzerland. Most people consider Ecuador's size to be an advantage, one that allows them to see its four distinct regions: the Andes, the Amazon, the Coast, and the Galapagos Islands, within in a relatively brief period of time.
From Quito, the Ecuadorian capital perched high in the Andes, which is undoubtedly among the most attractive Latin American cities, you are just minutes from snow-capped volcanoes, two hundred year-old haciendas, and colorful indigenous markets. Moreover, a mere one or two-hour flight away, there are 800 kilometers (497 mi) of pristine beaches, the Galapagos Islands, and a very accessible expanse of Amazon rainforest.
You may imagine that this diversity, the low cost of living and the abundance of cheap, user-friendly transportation would make Ecuador one of the most attractive destinations in South America for travelers. However, the truth is that the country is relatively undiscovered and there are still plenty of opportunities for off-the-beaten-track and adventure travel. Among the most popular activities here are bird-watching, mountain biking, kayaking and hiking.
Other travelers come to volunteer, frequently as language teachers, to help with re-forestation (the rainforest is being stripped down at an alarming rate), or to spend a few weeks studying Spanish in Quito, currently the biggest language-learning center in South America..
Spanish Schools in Ecuador There are a number of reputable Spanish schools in Ecuador, especially Quito and it's one of the most popular places to study Spanish in all of Latin America.
