It’s easy to overlook Ecuador and focus your excitement on the Galapagos Island. The country is the gateway to the groundbreaking archipelago where you will be able to experience animal encounters like no other. However, Ecuador is so much more then its famous neighbour. As the videographer and digital nomad Pete R recently discovered when he spent two weeks crossing Ecuador.
Arriving in colonial Quito, he hikes up the nearby volcanoes and heads deep into the Amazon jungle. He goes sailing through the sky on a zipline and takes an exhilarating journey down whitewater rapids. He comes face-to-face with the Amazon’s nighttime creepy crawlies and flies over the verdant landscape on the Swing at the End of the World.
Of course, it would be rude not to pay the Galapagos Islands and it’s array of wildlife a visit. But don’t make the mistake of not dedicating enough time to truly explore Ecuador.
