|Zaruma is famous as a long standing gold mining town and is some 100km from Machala reachable via bus with military check points on route so, do bring your passports.|
Next to the beautifully laid out plaza is a gold museum that gives the entire history of the various gold operations up to the current day and visitors can often see these operations going on today from rock-crushing facilities to other types of operations.
The churches are very interesting and the architecture is formed through very well made wooden construction while the town is built on a high mountain top which sports great scenic views as well as
a swimming pool with great panoramic views of the valleys below.
