Travel Routes in Ecuador

At Ecuador Tierra Viva (ETV) we strive to promote all the wonderful places that Ecuador has to offer the world.  Here we showcase travel routes to help tourists plan their trips to Ecuador.  Some of these routes are actively being promoted by tourism agencies.  Others have been suggested by former tourists and yet others have been created by ETV.  We hope you find them very useful.
