Ecuador: an exciting destination for international cruises

In the past decade, Ecuador has been “discovered” by a growing number of some of the world’s most important cruise lines, increasingly attracted by the port facilities, advantages and touring attractions that calling into Ecuador’s seaports offer.

The most popular ports are: Manta, Guayaquil, Esmeraldas & Puerto Bolívar. From any of these seaports, a host of exciting and interesting tours are offered.

As an example of the exciting and different places that could be reached easily in one of the cruise lines stops is, Isla de la Plata, a small volcanic island of approximately some 8 square kilometers of surface.
