We visited ecuador in 2017. It is a small country but very diverse with jungle, high mountains and Pacific ocean. The plant and animal life was just as diverse and we were lucky enough to see some it. Finally Ecuador has a rich colonial history with Cuenca and Quito being UNESCO heritage cities. Please enjoy our images and video of unusual birds.
