Ecuador is one of the countries with the highest numbers of streams. The Andes run through the entire country. The rivers on the west slope drain into the Pacific Ocean, the East side flows into the Amazon.
Most of the time the rivers are fast-flowing and continuous but we also find “Pool and Drop” rivers in Ecuador. As well all rivers offers different difficulties and make Ecuador to an ideal holiday destination for everyone.
Ecuador is the home of mostly every world's climate zone. In the lowlands up to an altitude of 1,000 hm it is tropical rain forest and hot humid clime. If you go up to Baeza 2,000 hm the rain forest turns into cloud forest and it gets a bit colder. Over 4,000 hm the ecuadorian mountains have less vegetation and everythink gets more alpine.

Ecuador is a country you can visit all year round. Because it is located close to the equator, it is never really cold and also not extremely warm because of the altitude.
