Puyo — This city is the capital of the Pastaza province and a very prosperous region, commercially speaking. It’s an important area for the production of sugar cane, tea, coffee and the yukka plant. It’s also beautifully situated close to exotic forest; the perfect starting point for adventurous excursions throughout the year.
Esmeraldas — The beaches of Esmeraldas are why most people visit the region. Try the famous drink, “coco loco” (crazy coconut) when visiting the area and check out some of the artisanal work using black and red coral.
The Galápagos Islands — There really is no other place on earth like The Galápagos Islands. They are completely isolated from the rest of civilisation in Ecuador and the evolution of the flora and fauna present is something to see in itself.
