Ecuador | Latin America
Ecuador is considered one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world, having more species of both flora and fauna than most anywhere. What an amazingly beautiful backdrop for a South American destination wedding! It's also a major center for sports, art, food, and film.
Mainland Ecuador is described in three regions: La Costa, low-lying pacific costal regions to the west; La Sierra, "the highlands" running north to south dominated by the Andes mountain range; and El Oriente, comprising the spectacular Amazon rainforest.
Ecuador is also home to the Galapagos Islands, or Región Insular. Teaming with a wide variety of exotic - and unusually friendly! - wildlife, these islands are the ultimate in ecological wedding destinations. There are many opportunities to experience this treasure - cruise ship, scuba dive, hiking, and more!
