It’s quite poetic that Ecuador is the centre of this big, beautiful planet of ours. In so few kms the peaks of the Andes, the jungles of the Amazon, and historical cities all have some square footage here and with this 14-day journey you can see some of it all. Get to know the Amazon during a homestay with a friendly Quichua family, find treasures at a local handicraft market, and later slip into a world of “ahh” in a mountain hot spring.
