ECUADOR HIGHLIGHTS

A trip through mainland Ecuador Highlights is pretty impressive. The country has four drastically different regions, the Andes mountains, the Amazon jungle and the Pacific coast and of course the Galapagos Islands. Each region has its own unique fauna and flora, climate and culture. The highlights of Ecuador trips let you visit two or more regions and take you to their most beautiful places.  Via this link, you can find all the Andes Mountain Tours that Rebecca Adventure Travel offers.
