Despite being a small country, Ecuador has much to offer.
You can spend time in Quito, a city of ancient architecture and modern touches, explore unspoilt rainforest, or head out to the peerless Galapagos Islands.
However, there are tourist targeted scams and high crime rates to watch out for.
Note: vast majority of trips are trouble free and there is no need to be paranoid. That said, it always pays to be aware, careful, and prepared.
