Ecuador Articles

Below you'll find inspiring stories of other travelers' journeys to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

Many of these articles were submitted as part of a VIVA travel writing contest. The contest attracted thousands of seasoned and aspiring travel writers, and the very best travel stories were published in a printed book: VIVA List Latin America.

This compilation of first hand experiences traveling through Latin America is organized by country, and covers 333 experiences and destinations ranging from Tiajuana to Tierra del Fuego.

Ecuador is one of the best represented countries, and has dozens of travelogues and articles about the best that Ecuador has to offer.
