A wonder of nature
One of the four worlds that Ecuador has to offer is the Amazon Rainforest, a true wonder of nature that can give you that plus that you were looking for when visiting this great country. You will be thrilled with everything that can be found in there, having the chance to bring memories home in this once in a lifetime experience, so better to be safe than sorry, bring enough battery and memory cards for your camera as you won’t stop shooting pictures.
The Amazon Rainforest largely covers the Amazon River Basin with a region of 1.7 billion acres. 60% of the rainforest is contained in Brazil with the remainder spreading through Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, and of course, Ecuador. The Amazon covers slightly less than half of Ecuador, although less than 5% of the population lives in this dense rainforest. According to Conservation International, Ecuador has more biodiversity per square meter than any other nation largely due to the rich biodiversity of the Amazon Rainforest and the Galapagos Islands.
Cuyabeno and Yasuní National Parks are world class biological reserves in Ecuador’s Amazonia preserving millions of species. This region is also home to several vibrant indigenous cultures, and visitors often have the chance to interact with them in special ways. The Amazon has all the allure that any guest could imagine when visiting such a famous, exotic land.
