We spent four weeks in Ecuador and it was one big adventure. From climbing three volcanic mountains (including Cotopaxi, which is the second highest mountain of Ecuador and 5897 meters high; see Natalie’s description here), exploring the Amazon Rainforest in the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve and finally diving with whale sharks in the Galapagos. As always, here a recap in pictures.

I do not own a underwater camera or housing. But my dive buddies took some pictures, which I share in the following post: Galapagos – Diving with the giants of the sea (text in German).
