Economy in Ecuador
(page 2 of 2)

Most important economic cities
The capital of the country since its creation is Quito, containing the political power and the main financial groups. Almost 2 million people live in this city, divided among three valleys. Quito is divided into three zones: south, north and center.


The center is the most important area for tourism, being found here all of the works constructed during the Colonial era. The Historical Center has beautiful churches, plazas and houses with captivating architecture, especially baroque. The city is a metropolis that grows more each day, focused mainly on culture and tourism.

Guayaquil is Ecuador's most important city economically. Guayaquil is the capital of the province of Guayas. Since Ecuador was formed, Guayaquil has been the first port of the country and the economic capital of Ecuador. The recently inaugurated "Malecon 2000" has turned into the city's main tourist attraction, sparking a modest growth in the economy of this city. More than two million people live in Guayaquil.

Cuenca is the cultural capital of Ecuador, capital of the province of Azuay and the third most important city in the country. Modern architecture mixes with the beautiful architecture from the colonial era, making the city popular for tourism. The production of jewelry, Panama hats and textiles also provide a strong income for this city. Almost 500,000 people live in Cuenca.

Manta is the second port of Ecuador. The city of Manta has, in the last 10 years, turned into a metropolis with many options for tourism and business. A US military base, in place for more than a year, has increased the flow of money and visitors. Near Manta are all of the beaches of Manabi, they are beautiful and can be considered to be some of the best in the country.
