Ecuador Attractions

There are an abundance of Ecuador attractions. This is especially due to the geographic diversity. There really is something for everyone!

Whether you're looking for eco-tourism or a big adventure trip or you just want to lay back and relax you're sure to find something you'll love.

My personal favorite in the Ecuador adventure category is white-water rafting or kayaking in the jungle. Actually it could go under the eco-tourism category as well, because the scenery is amazing! Some tours even include short jungle walks.
