Ecuador can be easily divided into three distinct landscapes. One half of the country is divided into the lowlands at the Pacific and the highlands of the Andes. The second half is made up of the lowlands in the east, which counts as the source of the Amazon. The country is characterised by rivers with many estuaries. The climate in Ecuador is intertropical, whereby the temperatures in each region are relatively constant. There are high precipitation levels, which make Ecuador’s soil one of the most diverse and fertile. This favours the growing of bananas in the tropical rainforest.
