Ecuador Train Journeys Amazing Adventures Through the Andes & Coast


Train of Sweetness Tour

Overview and History (Route not available)

Since the colonial period in Ecuador, agricultural products have been the main source of economic resources for the country. The cocoa bean was the most precious product of the Ecuadorian coast, having just about the same value as gold. The families that grew this crop were amongst the wealthiest families on the Pacific Coast. To this day, Ecuadorian cocoa beans are considered some of the best in the world. 

Discover the route of the banana, cocoa bean, sugar cane, and other plantations that gave the Rout of the Sweets its name. In this picturesque part of the Ecuadorian railway, witness how the valleys of the Ecuadorian coast meets with the colossal mountains of the Andes while you savor the delicious tastes of Ecuadorian cuisine in this lovely and nostalgic ride.
