Ecuador is well known for its abundance of varied exotic fruits, excellent fish and seafood and the countless varieties of Andean potatoes. Ecuador has some very tasty and very strange combinations in their dishes. You can expect to find lemon marinated shrimps, toasted corn on the cob and a huge variety of pastries filled with all types of interesting ingredients.
At the heart of the Cotopaxi province of Ecuador lies the sleepy little town of Salcedo. Most visitors to this part of the world only spend the night at one of the luxury hotels in the area while others just pass through by bus or on foot enroute to other destinations. Really though, Salcedo has a lot to offer and should definitely be given a second glance.
