Ecuador & Galapagos Handbook, 7th: Travel guide to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands

Overview

The phrase ‘small is beautiful’ could have been coined specifically with Ecuador in mind. By South American standards, Ecuador is tiny, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in diversity. Here, one can watch dawn break over the jungle canopy, have lunch high in the Andes, then watch the sun slip into the Pacific Ocean—all on the same day. Lying just over 600 miles offshore are the Galapagos Islands, inspiration for Darwin’s theory of evolution and without a doubt the greatest wildlife show on Earth. ...

    Great for Trip Planning

    I didn't know exactly which part of Ecuador I wanted to focus my trip on, but this book covered all the major regions*. I was grateful that it also provided practical information--like when to negotiate cab fare, what hours to stay out of which locations, bus timetables (and approx travel time), and how to make the best out of your trip whether it's 7 days or 3 weeks. The maps are pretty good, although I will probably end up purchasing a more detailed map of the Quito area. *I've made most use of it's information surrounding the Quito area, so I didn't look to much at its information regarding the Galapagos.
