Ecuador

Ecuador, officially the Republic of Ecuador (Spanish: República del Ecuador which literally translates as "Republic of the Equator") is a representative democratic republic in South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and by the Pacific Ocean to the west. It is one of only two countries in South America, along with Chile, that do not have a border with Brazil. The country also includes the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific, about 1,000 km (620 mi) west of the mainland. The main spoken language in Ecuador is Spanish (94% of the population).. Ecuador has an area of 275,830 km2 (106,500 sq mi). Its capital city is Quito, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the 1970s for having the best preserved and least altered historic center in Latin America. Reference: Wikipedia.
