All you need is Ecuador!

Tucked away along the silvery coastline of the Pacific, Ecuador makes up for a familiar yet distant name at the same time. We have all heard of it, but not a lot about it! Barely much to pick it as our next tourist destination. Quintessentially embodying the best of South America, Ecuador is a culinary and picturesque extravaganza when one can indulge in a range of activities—right from surfing at the beach to enjoying a quiet getaway with the family. 

In fact, tracing back a little in history, Charles Darwin’s ‘Theory of Natural Selection’ was experimented in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. Well, nothing better than going back to your roots, is it?

As a part of a familiarisation event, we were acquainted with some Equadorian culinary delights such as Empenanda de Viento and authentic Equadorian chocolate over a chocolate appreciation workshop by Chef Sanjana Patel, LaFolie. The chef took us through an enlightening session highlighting ways to appreciate chocolate and acquainted us with varieties of chocolate and their varied tastes.

PRO ECUADOR, the Institute for the Promotion of Trade and Investment kept us highly intrigued by sharing many wonders which makes Equador a visual treat for a backpacker or luxury traveler. Héctor Cueva Jácome, Consul General representing Ecuador in Mumbai, India gave us a dazzling glimpse of his country and taking cue from the Beatles song, reinstated 'All You Needis Ecuador’

With visa on arrival for Indians which lasts you a good 3 months, perhaps one should head to the Southern Americas this time for the resplendent delights the continent, and the country Ecuador has to offer!
