This year the theme of the congress is about tourism and successful tourist routes. The speakers from Ecuador will talk about:
The spondylus route,
The Spondylus route covers almost all the provinces of the Ecuadorian coast, from Loja, a province of the Sierra located to the south, to Colombia in the north. The surprising thing about this route is that it follows the coastline, so while driving you can enjoy the beautiful Ecuadorian beaches.
The route of the trains,
Traveling and getting to know Ecuador can be very pleasant for many people. Especially because they can know the 4 regions: Coast, Sierra, Amazon and Galapagos. There are tourist places in each of these areas. In these tours you can visit historical sites, cultural parks, and recognized sites of each city. Also inside the train you will have services like internet, cafeteria, souvenir shop and a bar to drink traditional drinks. They also have an outdoor balcony where you enjoy the vegetation, the mountains and the birds. The combination of these landscapes makes this tour a unique and unforgettable experience that is worth enjoying.
