A Dramatic Environment

Ecuador’s diverse landscape is both a blessing and a curse; its volatility makes it prone to environmental disasters. While these are localized and unlikely to occur on your particular vacation, it is good to keep in mind the unpredictability of Ecuador’s landscape.

Because of the amount of rainfall, Ecuador tends to experience flooding and subsequent landslides. It is very geographically active, with active volcanoes that go through eruptions and the occasional earthquake. Ecuador is a very dramatic country, which is also what makes it great for the adventure traveler.

In the environmental realm, Ecuador is currently experiencing problems with deforestation, both on the coast and in the Amazon basin. A weak government has been unable to regulate illegal logging practices. However, there are several non-profits and international organizations in the country working to preserve existing forests and introduce sustainable practices.
