(Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador)
The idea to create "The Spondylus Trail" (which is based on the importance of the red thorny oyster, an important part of pre-Columbian cultures of the region) as a Bi-national plan for Ecuador and Peru, was initiated due to the importance of archaeology, tourism and of the ancient past of Chirije.
With an onsite museum and also a beautiful beachfront eco-lodge with bungalows/cabins, it is now a relaxing and interesting travel destination in Ecuador, specifically in Bahia de Caraquez.
