What are the top 10 most important thing to do?
What are your interests?
Nr. 1 would be: Visit the Ecuador.
The top thing to see in Ecuador IMHO is the Galapagos Islands (which are on the equator just as Ecuador is).. After that you can visit some of the cities and do stuff like see Panama hats made.
In English: Equator.
Locally known as: Mitad del Mundo
