Ecuador

We really enjoyed our time in Ecuador and as such ended up overstaying by 10 days, making our total stay 24 days. We were very surprised with the country and if we didn’t have flights planned further down the line we would have stayed longer. Below you will find photos from our time in Ecuador, from Otavalo in the north to Puerto Lopez and Guayaquil in the south.

For where we stayed and our budget view our Ecuador route page.
