My recent trip to Ecuador marked my third visit to South America, so when I make the contentious statement I’m about to make, I have the context for doing so: I think Ecuador might be my favorite country in South America.
Previously, this title probably would’ve gone to Colombia, the country where I spent my second visit to South America, one I found to be a microcosm for all the experiences I had during my epic, five-country first South America trip. Ecuador, I found, offers most of what Colombia does, but in a package that’s even smaller.
That being said, the premise of today’s post has nothing to do with superlatives or rankings: I simply want to show you the beauty of Ecuador using some of my favorite photos (and selfies!) I took there.
