How is the culture in Ecuador?

The Culture of Ecuador is far from homogeneous. The population is a mix of Mestizos, Amerindian, Spanish and Blacks. There are more than 14 Indigenous groups in Ecuador and each have their own identities and traditions.

You will notice quite a difference in the culture depending on whether you are in one of the large cities such as Quito in the Highlands, Guayaquil in the Coast or in the Jungles of Ecuador

As with other countries in South America, the culture of Ecuador is a result of the blending of the native indigenous cultures with that of the Spanish who conquered here in the 16th century.
