Coast Ecuador

This region could be defined as a combination of touristic resorts, mangroves and little fishing communities. On the northern side, the Coast is humid, agrestic and not very developed. It’s famous for its vibrant Afro-Ecuadorian population, known for the musical gender they created: the “marimba” and the amazing festival they hold each year.
