the Ecuadorian nature is to be amazed by the ecological santuary
of the Galapagos Islands. It is to visit their coasts of rainy
forests and tropical savannas. It is to survey the infinite moors
from the snowy picks of the Mountain range of the Andes.
One of the
biggest natural attractions is the Galapagos Islands whose name
means "land of turtles." Some investigations conclude
that this archipelago is of volcanic origin and that was formed
millions of years ago. It is one of the few places in the world
where the animals are not afraid to the man thanks to the absence
an unforgettable experience to swim next to the peaceful marine
wolves or to dive near the corals. But it is necessary to be careful
in not taking strange elements, as seeds -for example - that may
contain spores and could alter the delicate ecosystem.
In the coast
that has an extension of 4,817 kilometers, the swamps, habitat
of fish, oysters, lobsters, crabs, clams and other crustaceans
stand out. Near the beaches the extraction of shrimps is carried
out, being the main work source for hundred of residents.
