From Thursday 26th through Sunday 29th Bosque Protector Cerro Blanco took part in the four-day Feria Internacional del Turismo, the annual tourism fair at the Guayaquil Convention Centre, which coincides with World Tourism Day on the 27th September. The event is aimed to bring together tourism operators from Ecuador and offer those in the tourism industry and members of the public an opportunity to find out what’s on offer in Ecuador and abroad.
The convention centre was packed with music, dancing, displays and food, and visitors full of curiosity took advantage - exploring the different stands, talking to stand holders, watching, and occasionaly taking part in, the odd dance, as well as indulging in free tastings of some tasty food and drinks.
All of the provinces in Ecuador were represented, including Guayaquil and Guayas. The team at Cerro Blanco spent a busy but fun few days preparing the stand for Bosque Cerro Blanco; collecting moss and tree trunks, trees and plants, in order to recreate the sights, sounds and smells of the forest.
The Cerro Blanco stand generated plenty of interest and the team there spoke and handed out lots of information to interested people over the four days. It also provided a popular little area for children to explore and a perfect spot for visitors to take a photo with friends, family or one of Cerro Blanco´s guides.
