arguably has the most intensely varied landscape in South America.
You get it all here: the colossal Andes, the Amazon, Pacific beaches,
and of course the naturalist's paradise of the Galapagos Islands.
The Galapagos Islands lie almost 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador’s

natural paradises and one of the most visited national parks in
the world. There are thirteen main islands that make up the archipelago.
The climate here is sub-tropical.
