Everyone’s heard of the Galápagos Islands, with their blue-footed boobies and natural phenomena. But many are surprised to find that they’re a part of Ecuador, a country the size of Colorado replete with its own incredible natural and cultural diversity. Ecuador is a place where you can begin your day with breakfast by the ocean, drive a few hours for lunch in the Andes and finish with dinner in the rain forest.
About: Paul Sambrano
Paul Sambrano was born and raised in Ecuador. After a year as an exchange student in the United States, he went back to his home country to study Ecology and Ecotourism. He held many jobs in both countries, working as a naturalist and bird guide in Ecuador’s cloud forest and the Amazon region, and as a zookeeper and trainer at the Cincinnati Zoo. During his time in the US, Paul took every chance he got to go back to Ecuador to see his family and visit the Amazon. He’s now back in Ecuador working as a naturalist and Trip Leader for Backroads, fulfilling his desire to travel and see as many places as possible.
