Ecuador’s luring culture
Ecuador is a nature lover’s paradise, over 17% of the country is protected to make sure that its precious biodiversity is not threatened. This is especially the case in the Galapagos Islands whose endemic wildlife prompted Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Both land and water are teeming with animals that you won’t see anywhere else in the world.
Ecuador is also known for its historical culture and is home to one of the oldest civilisations in South America, the Las Vegas tribe. There are over 20 indigenous languages spoken in Ecuador that vary depending on the region you are in. There are up to nine different dialects of Quicha and in some regions dialects change from tribe to tribe. A fascinating fact that will be sure to intrigue the linguistically inclined travellers.
