    Zaruma Things to Do

    The center of Zaruma consists of a large main square and an adjacent church. The views are outstanding, and at the west end of the main square a local tourist office provides a number of lodging options. We arrived after two days visiting family in Machala with fresh bread, left over slices of steak and cheese we bought at a market the day before....

  • Taxi from Portovelo

    Zaruma Transportation

    When you arrive by bus from Loja in Portovelo there are Taxis that can drive you to Zaruma. July 2006 it was $ 3 for four of us.

    Got off bus to go through immigration exiting Ecuador. Too slow, bus driver drops my bags off

    Friendly hustler offers to "help". Gets us a taxi

    Taxi takes us to Peruvian immigration

    Stop in Huaquillas to change money. Guy in briefcase shortchanges us, then gives us many fake bills.

    Otherwise hustler was a help, but could have done it on our own. Beware the money changers. Better to find a Casa de Cambio.
