Worried that you won't have anything to do while studying abroad in Ecuador this Summer? Here is a list of my favorite attractions:

1. Otavalo: Went to the huge Indian Market in this small town (less than two hours from Quito by bus) my first weekend in Ecuador and didn't realize what a treasure it really was. I wish I could have gone back! One of the biggest, best, most complete and least expensive Indian markets you'll find anywhere.

2. Cuenca: Beautiful historical and colonial city surrounded by four gushing white water rivers. Spend a weekend or several weeks. Home to the excellent EIS language school.

3. Cotapaxi: A climb up this mountain less than two hours from Quito is breathtaking (at 15,000 feet - literally!).

4. Quito: The capital city surrounded by mountains is home to world class theater and museums, international cuisine and a host of excellent language schools.

5. Cajas: Lagoons, mountains and stunning rugged scenery less than an hour from Cuenca. They say aliens have been sighted here many times. Camping, anyone?

6. The Jungle: Many great programs take you to live among the monkeys and anacondas in grass huts, but the Academia de Espanol's week of combination of Spanish study and adventure always receives glowing reports.

7. The Rain/Cloud Forests: Again, a number of reserves exist, but the 5* amenities, service and abundance of activities at the Sierra Azul program, sponsored by Latin American Academy, at very reasonable prices was a definite highlight of my trip! The trip includes Spanish classes.
