Ecuador Introduction

Ecuador is one of the smallest countries of South America. It lies on the west coast of the continent between Colombia and Peru.

The equator crosses Ecuador and gives the country its name. Ecuador is the Spanish word for equator.

A Short Background

The "Republic of the Equator" was one of three countries that emerged from the collapse of Gran Colombia in 1830 (the others being Colombia and Venezuela).

Between 1904 and 1942, Ecuador lost territories in a series of conflicts with its neighbors. A border war with Peru that flared in 1995 was resolved in 1999.
