Ecuador may be small but it's most certainly mighty. It packs in
charming colonial cities, ancient ruins from the Inca Empire and a
quite startling diversity of landscapes and wildlife.
And then of course there is the country's jewel in the crown,
especially for divers, the Galapagos Islands. Six hundred miles out
in the Pacific Ocean lie the fascinating islands, the catalyst for
Darwin's theory of evolution. We have visited the islands on
several occasions, and know the best boats for every type of trip
from family holidays to dive safaris.
