National Geographic's Ecuador and Galapagos Adventure Map is designed to meet the unique needs of adventure travelers detailed, durable, and accurate. Ecuador and Galapagos includes the locations of thousands of towns and villages, plus a clearly marked road network complete with distances and designations for highways, roads and more. What sets National Geographic Adventure Maps apart from traditional road maps are the hundreds of points of interest that highlight the diverse, unique, and exotic destinations within Ecuador and the Galapagos islands including national parks and reserves, World Heritage sites, archeological sites, churches, spas, and more. The front side of the map shows the southern half of Ecuador including the provinces of Zamora, Chinchipe, Loja, El Oro, Azuay, Canar, Santa Elena, Guayas, Chimborazo, and Morona-Santiago.
