Escaping the effects of the last ice age, the large ecoregions corresponding to what is now Ecuador have become a natural refuge for many species. Here nature has been able to evolve, adapt and establish itself like nowhere else on Earth.

Nestled between the Amazon rainforest and the beaches of the Pacific, the smallest of the Andean countries has inherited an incomparable diversity over the centuries. It is considered one of the most biodiverse countries in the region and in the world. The 1700 species of birds present in Ecuador are distributed in 6 large bio-regions and more than 40 different ecosystems, easily accessible and with excellent accommodation facilities, which makes it a particularly popular country for birdwatchers, photographers and nature lovers. The exuberance of its flora and fauna, as well as its great cultural richness, ensures that the visitor will have unforgettable memories.
