It is a democratic republic in South America and in its composition includes the Galapagos Islands, about 965 miles west of Ecuador’s territory. The Galapagos Islands are known by many different names, but in fact, “Galapago” is archaic Spanish word referring to the islands turtles. Galapagos archipelago consists of 13 large and more than 200 small islands stretched through 1000 kilometers from the coast of Ecuador. This natural paradise is protected by UNESCO, but some plant and animal species are in the stage of extinction.

Ecuador is also known by several volcanoes, as Cayambe, Antisana and Cotopaxi. In this area people cultivated sunflower, chamomile, some sweet herbs, nettles and specific rose petals. It is believed that these plants can cure various diseases and also can reduce negative energy. Renewed railway will connect the capital town Quito with Ecuadorian peaks of the Andes and ports. That is just another reason to increase tourist visits to this place. The average annual temperature in Ecuador most often is around 20 degrees. Because of that always a part of Ecuador has a sunny and pleasant temperature.
