The new edition of The Rough Guide to Ecuador is a comprehensive guide to this culturally and ecologically diverse country, straddling both hemispheres. It includes in-depth information on Ecuador's varied wildlife and vibrant indigenous communities, plus coverage of some of the most awe-inspiring scenery in South America - from the Amazon rainforest to the heights of the Andes, via beautiful, sandy beaches. We cover all of Ecuador's highlights, from colonial cities to off-the-beaten track villages, snowcapped volcanoes to rolling cloudforests, plus details on the best festivals throughout the year. As well as coverage of mainland Ecuador - including in-depth chapters on the two main cities Quito and Guayaquil - we have a section dedicated to the Galápagos Islands, the world's best wildlife destination. With detailed, accurate maps, inspiring photography, insider reviews on the best hotels and restaurants and reliable transport and safety advice throughout, The Rough Guide to Ecuador will ensure you won't miss a thing during your trip.
