Ecuador is situated on the Pacific coast of South America. The Andes mountains run through it, giving the country a wide variety of climates. Quito has springtime weather year-round because it is located near the equator at about 9,500 feet.
As the oldest capital city in the western hemisphere, it is endowed with a rich cultural heritage. Shopping malls, cable TV and fast food restaurants counterpoint it as a modern locale.
Ecuador has it all, not just in climate, but also in beauty. The mountains are breathtaking while the Amazon jungle contains spectacular flora and fauna. The coast offers relaxing beaches with warm waters. The Galápagos Islands belong to Ecuador and some of the most unique species in the world can be found there.
Ecuador is a country blessed with an intriguing combination of natural wonders and cultural diversity. It is an ideal setting for the Alliance Academy International.
