Multicultural Ecuador 

Ecuador is home to seventeen distinct indigenous groups, as well as 27 different ethnic groups, many of which regularly maintain their language, traditions, and unique dress.

With these diverse communities in Ecuador, you will be able to partake in their histories, the worldviews of their ancestral cultures, their way of life, and their customs. Sharing in experiences such as these will carry you through a pleasant and authentic stay with each community. It is important that visitors realize that community tourism is more than just the people of these communities talking about themselves; rather, these communities seek to preserve their cultural identity and above all the wellbeing of the community as a whole by means of the extra income generated by this type of tourism. In this way, community tourism plays a vital role in improving the quality of life for entire communities.
