A pioneer in community-based tourism: Ecuador
Few countries in the world match Ecuador’s natural beauty and cultural richness. With its coast, its sierra, the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador is home to four ecosystems and a rich biodiversity.
One quarter of the population is indigenous and still cherishes age-old traditions.
The 'indígenas’ growing self-awareness makes Ecuador a pioneer in developing community-based tourism.
