Where Are Ecuador's National Parks & Reserves?
There are national parks and nature reserves located in every region of Ecuador. Some parks are, however, more accessible than others.
Needless to say, the Galápagos National Park is the best known park in Ecuador. Expect to see a range of animals here, including blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, and sea lions.
The Cayambe Ecological Reserve, located in the Northern Sierra, is one of Ecuador's most geographically diverse areas. Travelers can explore rainforests, alpine tundras, and lakes within this reserve.
