Ecuador is one of the most diverse countries in the world though it’s comparably tiny. Beside the Galapagos Islands (which is the #1 tourist destination in Ecuador) the country has a lot more to offer, therefore I focussed on “La Sierra” in this video which is a paradise for landscape lovers and outdoor adventurers.

Another reason to visit the Andean region is that you have the chance to dive into the local culture and get a real feeling of Ecuador. The places to see in Ecuador I focussed on in this short video are the result of my own travels along the center from north to south and are easily doable in 2 weeks time.

Things to do in Ecuador covered in this video:
01) 00:36 – Otavalo market in Otavalo
02) 01:00 – Hike the Cuicocha lake
03) 01:25 – Middle of the World, Mitad del Mundo & Quitsato in Cayambe
04) 01:48 – Quito, capital & UNESCO World Heritage
05) 02:08 – Termas de Papallacta (hot springs)
06) 02:24 – Cayambe Coca National Park
07) 02:45 – Quilotoa & Shalala viewpoint
08) 03:13 – Tren Crucero & Nariz del Diablo (Devil’s nose)
09) 03:47 – Inka ruins in Ingapirca
10) 04:04 – Cuenca & it’s beautiful old town

  46. Romina Rosales says

    I'm sorry to say this , but if you're a tourist from another country , and specially from a first world country , don't bargain with the artisans, most of them are struggling to make ends meet and their work is invaluable, you don't look like a local kby doing so , you just look like an asshole.
