Ecuador Flag

Ecuador is located on the west coast of South America and used to be part of the heartland of the Incas. From 1533, when the last Inca ruler was executed, until independence in 1830, the country was a Spanish colony.

The country’s economic output is low and Ecuador is one of the poorer countries in Latin America. The decline of the national currency Sucre led to the introduction of the US dollar in 2000.
