Ecuador

Ecuador is a country in northwestern South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean on the west. Ecuador also includes the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific, about 1,000 kilometres west of the mainland. The capital city is Quito, which is also the largest city.

What is now Ecuador was home to a variety of Amerindian groups that were gradually incorporated into the Inca Empire during the 15th century. The territory was colonized by Spain during the 16th century, achieving independence in 1820 as part of Gran Colombia, from which it emerged as its own sovereign state in 1830. The legacy of both empires is reflected in Ecuador’s ethnically diverse population, with most of its 16.4 million people being mestizos, followed by large minorities of European, Amerindian, and African descendants. Spanish is the official language and is spoken by a majority of the population, though 13 Amerindian languages are also recognized, including Quichua and Shuar.

The sovereign state of Ecuador is a middle-income representative democratic republic with a developing economy that is highly dependent on commodities, namely petroleum and agricultural products. It is governed as a democratic presidential republic. One of 18 megadiverse countries in the world, Ecuador hosts many endemic plants and animals, such as those of the Galápagos Islands. In recognition of its unique ecological heritage, the new constitution of 2008 is the first in the world to recognize legally enforceable Rights of Nature, or ecosystem rights. It also has the fifth lowest homicide rate in the Americas. Between 2006 and 2016, poverty decreased from 36.7% to 22.5% and annual per capita GDP growth was 1.5 percent (as compared to 0.6 percent over the prior two decades). At the same time, inequalities, as measured by the Gini index, decreased from 0.55 to 0.47.

Conocido como Castillo de Gillow, es la característica que vuelve única a la Ex-Hacienda de Chautla, en Puebla un lugar increíble.

Actualmente la Ex Hacienda funciona como atractivo turístico donde se puede pasar un día al aire libre en un escenario de película, en un espacio con amplios jardines de estilo inglés, senderos boscosos, una capilla, un museo y una cocina de talavera poblana, donde por momentos parece que se puede viajar en el tiempo y ver cómo funcionaba este feudo que tenía su propia cárcel y que contó con la primera planta eléctrica del continente americano. Son 60 hectáreas donde encontrarás un mix de historia, arquitectura, leyendas y un entorno verde increíble para pasar el día en familia o con amigos. 🇲🇽😍. //.
