About Ecuador

Ecuador is located in the western part of South America, along the Pacific Ocean. It borders just 2 other South American countries including Peru in the south, and Colombia in the north.

The climate in Ecuador is tropical along the coasts because the country is situated right on the equator. But as you move into the mountainous regions, temperatures become much cooler.

Because the earth is shaped like an oblate spheroid, Ecuador is also home of the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Chimborazo in the Andes. If you thought it was Mount Everest, this is the highest peak above sea level, but not overall.
