The tourism ministry of Ecuador aimed to improve tourism and encourage people from all over the world to visit the country. They started creating routes, which already existed physically and were normally visited by Ecuadorians, but lacked names. This absence of names made it impossible to promote these destinations abroad. As a result of this process, we now have a route called “the Spondylus route.”


Ecuador Bike Rental offers motorcycle adventure tours in Ecuador. These tours allow our customers to experience the essence of the area, including observing people in their regular lives, culture, and activities. Additionally, they provide opportunities to explore the natural environment surrounding us more quickly and deeply. Riding our bikes and our experience in the area make this possible.


Spondylus Route

The name “Spondylus route” comes from the spondylus shell, which had vital importance for pre-Columbian indigenous groups along the coast of Ecuador, such as Valdivia, Machalilla, and Chorrera. These groups used the shell for fertility rituals of the land. Additionally, indigenous groups even used it as a form of “currency” to acquire products that were not from the area. Researchers have found handicrafts made from this shell in the Andean area. It’s noteworthy that this shell was exclusively found along the coast of Ecuador, not in Peru or Colombia.
