We have traveled to Ecuador since 1997, when we were in the process of establishing meteorological stations to monitor the upcoming El Niño event along the coast of South America.  A work-related visit to the Galapagos Islands in 2005 led to a longer personal visit in February 2012.  Finally, we returned to the mainland of Ecuador in 2019 for a conference and a longer personal trip of 10 days to visit well-known birding destinations.  These trips are described at the following links:
