National Parks and Reserves in Ecuador
(page 1 of 10)

Ecuador's impressive system of National Parks and Natural Reserves reflect the rich geographical and biological diversity of this small country. Being able to visit these biological reserves is truly a privilege, especially since very few places that provide such a soul enriching, humbling experience are as accessible as these parks.

Unfortunately, Ecuador's national parks--like the natural world in general-- are threatened by the shortsighted ambition of groups wanting to exploit non-sustainably natural resources to accumulate fast money. This exploitation is facilitated by an inability to appreciate the inherent value of these parks-- by both unenlightened government officials and a preoccupied citizenry. Fortunately, this self-defeating attitude is starting to change as the philosophy of eco-tourism--which values life in a spiritual, economic and holistic manner-- begins to make inroads in the Ecuadorian population.

We hope this virtual tour of Ecuador's parks motivates you to visit them in person.
