Where is Ecuador

Ecuador is a small country in terms of both population and size. The country became an independent nation in 1830 after previously being part of the Spanish colonial empire and Gran Columbia. However, Ecuador lost much of its claimed territory to the larger neighboring countries after this time. It is named after the equator, which runs through the northern part of the country. This might give us a clue about where is Ecuador located.
