Nationals believe that Ecuador is nature's greatest achievement. The Andean highlands are a tapestry of color and the Amazon rainforests are a surplus of lush vegetation and exotic wildlife. In your spare time, take the opportunity to visit the enchanting Galapagos Islands. Having risen from the floor of the Pacific Ocean millions of years ago, the remote islands offer unique species of plants and animals that are not found anywhere else in the world. Just outside Quito, the country's capital, ESL teachers can visit the Avenue of the Volcanoes and the Mitad del Mundo, a monument marking the equator. Don't miss your chance to stand in two hemispheres at once!
