Friday Fun Facts-Ecuador

Ecuador is a country that has recently entered my travel radar (excluding the Galapagos Islands since they’ve always been on it). We’ll see if anything pans out on it in the future…

1.) The second highest point in Ecuador is Cotopaxi, one of the highest active volcanoes in the world.


2.) The term Ecuador means equator in Spanish. The country was named after the equator which passes through it. 


3.) The Otavalo Market is one of South America’s most famous and largest markets. Saturday is the busiest day and everything from fruits to artisan crafts to llamas (yes, llamas) is sold there.
