About the Event

With its startling biodiversity, sweeping highland terrain, and boasting more species of Orchid than any other country on earth, It’s easy to forget that Ecuador is the smallest nation within the An dean States, and goes to show that size most certainly isn't everything. Ecuador’s greatest draw has to be its proximity to the captivating Galápagos Islands, where visitors leave humbled and inawe, having encountered species of animals and plants found nowhere else on the planet. And, if you are in search of life’s ultimate social media check-in point, then head to the monument locally known as La mite del mundo which quite literally translates to The middle of the world, and marks out the general location at which the equator passes through.
