Ecuador: Conscious Tourism

Posted on December 26, 2012 • Filed under: Ecuador, TRAVEL

Jane Wilson, Unravel Travel TV talks to Patricio Tamariz, Executive Director, Ecuador Tourism Authority at the World travel Market 2012 in London. Mr. Tamariz talks about Ecuador and Conscious Tourism – a life experience that generates personal growth and makes one become better human beings. This new concept is based on ethical and sustainable principles and promotes the values of peace, friendship, respect and love for life as the essence of the tourism practice. It asks for an agreement of coexistence, responsibility, mutual respect and fellowship between the tourism industry and its consumers with our natural and cultural heritage. Conscious Tourism is a dynamic concept that lives and is constantly evolving. It is an experience of giving and receiving.
A microcosm of sensations and flavours in the centre of the planet: that is Ecuador. A unique country, where all the cultures, peoples and landscapes of Latin America merge to form the world’s most perfect fragrance. Ecuador is located on the Equator in the northwest of South America. It borders Colombia and Peru to the north, Peru to the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. With a surface area of 283,561 square kilometres, it is the eighth largest country in South America, and the geography of its four regions is very diverse: Andes, Amazon, Pacific Coast and Galapagos. Four worlds converge on its territory, from the warm Pacific Coast that gradually rises towards the snowy heights and temperate valleys of the Andes mountains, eventually dropping down to the green Amazonian carpet of biodiversity.
