Culture of Ecuador

Ecuador culture, entertaiment

Entertainment

As with almost all of Latin America, Ecuadorians are ardent football fanatics, and the country is very successful in international tournaments of the sport.

Alongside soccer, volleyball is also common, though it is played differently to Western volleyball. The ball is much heavier and there are only three players per team.

Bullfighting, a legacy of Spanish colonization, is held annually at a large festival in Quito. Forms of entertainment popular worldwide are found in Ecuador also, including darts and card games for adults and marbles, hopscotch and skipping ropes popular pastimes for children.

Fishing, especially for the enormous bagre catfish, which is found at the bottom of rivers and can weigh up to 100kg, is very popular. Bull sharks are often caught in rivers also.

During December in Quito, a grand celebration is held lasting for days, called "Las fiestas de Quito"
