Ecuador: mega-diverse country for travel
Ecuador is perhaps one of the most mega-diverse countries per square kilometer on the planet. In relation to its surface, Ecuador holds the greatest amount of species of plants and animals on Earth. At latitude 0 degrees in the middle of the world, shadows disappear in the presence of the mid-day sun. It is a destination where everything feels close and where each region is a different world, from the Galapagos Islands to the Pacific Coast, to the Andes Highlands and the Amazon Rainforest. Ecuador’s key tourism products are eco-tourism, adventure tourism, and cultural tourism. Here, travelers journey through a life-changing experience that generates personal growth and make them better human beings. As far as city life, Quito, is filled with bright blue skies and art, and bears the largest best preserved colonial center of Latin America fused with a modern and contemporary city. Museums, churches, convents, parks, skyscrapers, and town squares captivate visitors from all over the world. Named after Pichincha and surrounded by powerful green mountains, visitors may observe 14 volcanoes with over 4,000 meters of altitude from different places of the city. The capital and political center of Ecuador was the first city named by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1978, and was the winner as the best destination of South America. Ecuador uses the .travel domain to gain that instant brand recognition. Website visitors know that they will be “traveling” to Ecuador when they see the .travel web site extension. Details of the .travel domain program may be found at www.travel.travel and through any .travel authorized registrar listed at www.registrar.travel.
