10. Riobamba, Ecuador
Popularly known as the Sultan of the Andes, the exquisite colonial town of Ecuador, Riobamba is nestled amidst high hills and snow-capped mountains. The city’s colonial heritage of Spanish architecture and huge plazas, a vibrant mix of cultures, and scenic beauty combine to make it one of the most amazing destinations in Ecuador.
Why April? Because it is in this month that the vintage city celebrates the Battle of Riobamba considered as the wildest fight for freedom from Spanish colonization in South America. Concerts, colorful parades, and various events make April an ideal month for a trip to Riobamba.
