Enviormental, Cultural, and Social Impacts:
Tourism in Ecuador has a negative impact on the environment. this has not been mentioned as much but due to people mistreating this wonderful area, the rainforest, and oceans are being polluted ( littering ect ). There are both positive and negative impacts on culture.
some positive impacts are the preservation and restoration of cultural heritage, revival of traditional arts and crafts, cultivation of cultural pride and sense of identity, cross cultural exchange
some negative impacts are loss of cultural character, commercialization of human relationships, and potential misunderstanding and conflict between residents and tourists.
