    Hangout-worthy Places in Ecuador

    Ecuador is known for its beautiful and incredible attractions. Whether you’re into wildlife spotting or adventure activities like canyoning and whitewater rafting, Ecuador has something for you.

    In this post, i will be discussing at least five (5) hangout-worthy places where you can relax and have a nice time with friends and family.

    1. Galapagos Islands

    In my previous post, i already made mention of this island. You cant talk about Ecuador without mentioning the Galapagos islands, it’s simply indispensable. Located about two hours off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are many people’s sole reason for visiting Ecuador. According to UNESCO, the Galapagos archipelago is made up of 127 islands, islets and rocks. Of these, there are 19 large islands, four of which are inhabited.

    2. Quito

    Quito is the capital city of Ecuador, and to say it has “everything” isn’t an exaggeration. Ranging from a stunning UNESCO World Heritage colonial city centre to great nightlife in Plaza Foch. There are several viewpoints where you can get great panoramas of the old town – try el Panecillo, a huge statue of the Virgin Mary, or climb the towers of the San Francisco cathedral.

    3. Guayaquil’s Malecón 2000

    Spanning the Guayas river, the Malecon is full of historical monuments, gardens, foodie areas, an anthropology museum, shopping centers, and fountain squares. Guayaquil’s Melecon has a rich history, being the heart of history and social life in the 19th century.

    4. Los Frailes beach

    Los Frailes is arguably one of the top beaches in the world, and undoubtedly the most pristine beach in mainland Ecuador. The beach is gorgeous, featuring long stretches of sandy beach great for long walks. There are places providing vantage points overlooking multiple beaches. You can spot whales, flying fish, diving frigate birds, and it is a great place to swim.

    5. El Panecillo

    El Panecillo is one of the top places to visit in Ecuador. From the top of this majestic hill, you have a beautiful view of the city, a view only eclipsed by the Teleferiqo in Quito, a ski lift that brings you to the top of the city. You can hang out at the base, or even climb to the top for an even better view.
