Te Amazon region in Ecuador also called The Oriente by the locals is a very big area of rainforest located east of the Andes and makes close to half of Ecuador’s geographical area with only 5% of the country’s population.
The wild landscape and indigenous people of the Oriente were undisturbed for centuries until 1542 when one of the main Spanish conquistadors embarked in his ambitious expedition in search of the Inca’s gold “El Dorado”. The legend of the Inca’s gold hidden city has brought countless explorers only to come back empty handed if they ever came back.
