Living history and indigenous, pre-Columbian culture
Amazonia, in addition to the natural wealth and the multiple indigenous nationalities that still live there facing oil companies, in the jungle you can discover a variety of animals, plants and many ancient mysteries abandoned cities and the many indigenous communities that conserve much of their ancestral customs and language, such as Quichuas or Siona-Secoyas and Sapara.
The Andes Mountains
The imposing Andes mountain range biases the country in two and separates the jungle from the coast. In the mountains we can find countless active volcanoes. The Cotopaxi (5897 meters) is the highest active volcano in the world. In its skirts, picturesque villages and fertile landscapes grow.
The most important pre-Columbian ruins are also hidden in the mountains. The largest archaeological complex in the country is the Archaeological Park Pyramids of Cochasquí with 15 pyramids and the castle of Ingapirca, an Inca temple with more than five centuries old.
On the coast and the beaches
For rest, the beaches of Mompiche, Súa, Atacames and Tonsupa are some of these beaches of extraordinary beauty. Adventurers will prefer the beaches of Montañita and Canoa. Those who enjoy more contemplative experiences may be able to spot the backs of whales that annually approach from the Antarctic to mate on our shores, boat ride on the beautiful Jupiter Island in Mompiche and much more.
