Facts

On a small surface, charming Ecuador combines a dense Amazon jungle with stunning Andean lands­capes, warm coasts in the Pacific Ocean, and of course, the famous Galapagos Islands.

Although Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America with the largest biodi­versity per km² in the world. In Ecuador coexist so many different cultures, species of animals and plants, and lands­capes. Ecuador is the summary of North, Central and South America.

REGIONS

Thanks to the Andes (Cordillera de los Andes) Ecuador is divided into 3 regions: Coast (Costa), Andean Highlands (Sierra) and Amazon (Oriente). The world famous Galapagos Islands are the fourth region of Ecuador. They are located about 1,000 kilometers off the Ecuadorian coast. The combi­nation of the tropical zone on the coast, the Andes and the equator is the reason for the diversity in nature and the different climate in such a small land area. If you want, you can experience spring, summer, autumn, and winter in one day. From the warm tropical weather along the coast to the snow on the fasci­nating mountains of the Andes. All this is possible all year round as Ecuador is located on the equator.

Quito – the highest capital in the world.

Quito is the capital of Ecuador and is located 20 km south of the equator, at about 2,850 m above sea level. Numerous mountains and volcanoes surround Quito such as the Ruco and Guagua Pichincha volcanoes. Quito is located on the founda­tions of the Inca Empire, and the Quiteños (residents of Quito) take pride in having the largest histo­rical center in Latin America, declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. The colonial old quarter has many 16th and 17th century churches and other buildings that combine archi­tec­tural styles of Indigenous, European and Moros (Mudejar style). The food of Quito has influ­ences from the regions of the Andes and Europe, such as “El Locro de Papas” a potato soup with cheese and avocado.

EL PANECILLO

El Panecillo is a monument located on the top of a hill in the middle of Quito. The Incas have called the hill “Schungoloma”, which means “heart hill” in their language. In 1976, the Spanish artist Agustín de la Herrán Matorras was commis­sioned by the religious order of the Oblates to build a 45-meter-tall stone monument of a Madonna which was assembled on a high pedestal on the top of Panecillo. Called “Virgin of El Panecillo”, it is made of seven thousand pieces of aluminum.

Otavalo – the largest indigenous market in South America

Otavalo is the most popular tourist desti­nation in northern Ecuador. The indigenous city is located 110 km north of Quito, at an altitude of 2,500 meters above sea level. It is best known for the colorful market in the “Plaza de los Ponchos”. The three surrounding volcanoes Imbabura (4,621m), Cotacahi (4,935m) and Fuya Fuya (4,263m) offer a beautiful panorama in which the city is embedded. The landscape around Otavalo is charac­te­rized by numerous lakes, some of which are in craters. Every year in September, the city celebrates the Fiesta del Yamor, an ancient Inca ritual where the sun god is honored. The city of Otavalo is an example of a typical South American Andean city.

THE MARKET

The famous indigenous market takes place in the Plaza de Ponchos, right in the city center. Time and again, we read that Otavalo is the largest local market in Ecuador. Other sources even say that it is the largest market of its kind in South America. The market­place is open every day, but on Saturdays, the entire city center is trans­formed into a huge, colorful market zone, where goods of all sorts are offered. The ubiquitous network of tourists from all over the world today has made Otavalo one of the wealt­hiest areas in Ecuador.
