If you had two weeks - which would you rather do. Egypt/Jordan or Ecuador/Colombia? Why?

I wouldn't choose either, but if those were my only choices Ecuador/ Columbia would be the choice. The food, scenery, and culture are more interesting to me. Egypt/ Jordan are overrated, there are a few tourist trap places and that's about it.

Neither option would be on my list for safety (personal safety and gov stability) and health care reasons, but if those aren't things you care about then go for it.

You need full 2 weeks for Egypt (including the amazing southern part and Sinai for beaches). Jordan is also its own trip. Ecuador and Colombia also separate trips. Which to choose in part depends on time of year.

I’m about to get on a flight to Egypt and planning a trip to Colombia next year. I’d agree with M1 that each of these are their own separate places. I’m only in Egypt for 9 days but wish I had some extra time to make it out to Siwa.

For Colombia, I’m planning for 5 days in Medellin. I’ve got a little time off, hence the short trip with only one city.

Thanks for all the advice! I’m in a job where I basically only get two weeks uninterrupted off (in biglaw so I work late every night and most weekends) so we’re trying to maximize our time off!

Would obviously love to take two weeks in each country, but would rather hit up multiple countries in one trip and plan to go back later in life when I have more time.

Sounds like you should maybe skip Ecuador altogether and focus on Colombia?

That time frame is ok for weather in most of these. Jordan best in spring.
