Located on the west coast of South America, with Colombia to the north and Peru to the south, Ecuador is a popular tourist destination in the region. Known as one of the top 17 countries in the world to have the greatest biodiversity, Ecuador features the world-famous Galápagos Islands, and is known for celebrating the fact that the equator runs right through its capital city, Quito. It’s one of the few places in the world where you can cross over from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere in one step.
Whether you are spending your time in Ecuador straddling the equator or visiting the cultural and historical attractions, having a dependable travel insurance policy to rely on allows you to enjoy your trip knowing you're covered. Blue Cross has you covered.
