The hacienda has 15 beautifully decorated bedrooms, all with their own fireplace; antique gardens along with cozy living and reading rooms offer a peaceful atmosphere.Seeing them all is the challenge that should become your aim.A country whose name is synonymous with the invisible line of the Equator, dividing North from South, the centrally located Ecuador packs a powerful array of natural and man-made wonders, an especially astonishing collection of marvels in fact for such a small nation.And I still have no idea what happened to girls in Ecuador.Ecuador is right in the middle of Peru and Colombia.
