Ecuador: A Perfect Place to Visit

Aaron Ostrom
Ecuador, the most diverse and beautiful country in Latin America, is located in the northwestern part of South America and crossed by the Equator, which divides the word in two hemispheres. If you have been thinking about visiting some places in South America, don't forget to visit the Republic of Ecuador.  Ecuador has a myriad of places to visit, and the most exiting thing is that every area is marvelous in diversity, color, gastronomy, and architecture. 

For instance, Otavalo is recognized worldwide because of famous folk music and handicrafts created by the indigenous population--descendants of Incas, called Otavalos. Another  incredible place to visit is San Pedro de Rio Bamba (Riobamba), which is the capital of Chimborazo Province.  This is magic around there; it's just like being in Heaven. In addition to that, don't forget to visit Isla de la Plata, were we can find the Blue-footed Booby and dolphins swimming nearby.

The official and common language in Ecuador is Spanish. There are only two seasons--the dry season in summer and the wet season in winter.  At the moment, the U.S. dollar is used as the official currency; in other words, there's no need to worry about conversion rates or learning to use different coins and notes. 

Prices for food, hotels, clothes, tuition at language schools, and transportation are very low by U.S. standards.  Consequently, Ecuador is a great place to go for a vacation, to have a semester abroad, or even to live for a while. The low cost of living, temperate climate, and abundance of things to see all make it a worthwhile destination.
