Useful Links:   http://www.vivecuador.com/ This is possibly our favourite South American Official tourism site. The main page is in English and Spanish so makes finding out information much quicker and easier then the other sites. Excellent selection of useful information.Still an excellent website although we would now vote Chile as our favourite South American Tourism website. http://www.mmrree.gov.ec/ This is the official website for the Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Very easy to navigate as on the left of the homepage is a section clearly marked Visas. One of the best South American government websites. http://www.galapagos-travel.com/ This is the official web site for tours to the Galapagos Islands. Very informative.
