Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands - North Coast & Lowlands (Chapter)
This is the North Coast & Lowlands chapter from Lonely Planet's Ecuador & the Galápagos Islands guidebook.
Ecuador's north coast may not feature the outstanding natural attractions found in much of the country, but its empty beaches, little-explored mangrove forests, indigenous settlements and delectable African-Ecuadorian cuisine are a few of the reasons why many come here.
