Ecuador Flights GuideLocated on the west coast of South America, Ecuador is aptly named for its location: it straddles the equator. The capital city of Quito enjoys consistently warm and sunny weather year-round, and provides travelers with a plethora of attractions and activities, among these the Ciudad Mitad del Mundo, where a monument marks the equator, the Basilica del Voto Nacional where visitors can look out at the city from the towers, and the Catholic church Compania de Jesus, both famous for their ornate and stunning architecture in the styles of neo-Gothic and Baroque, respectively.
Ecuador is also famous for its range in natural environments, ranging from Amazon jungle to the Andean highlands to the Galapagos Islands. Prospective travelers can also note the appeal of the volcano Cotopaxi, which can be seen in-person at Cotopaxi National Park, Yasuni National Park, and Machlilla National Park. Avianca services flights to the capital city's international airport, Mariscal Sucre International, the country's busiest airport as well as one of South America' most busy.
