The ship crashed into a reef and the slaves were sent to seek food, but never returned. The Spanish died of hunger and diseases, while the new esmeraldeños that escaped were established and formed a well organized community that prospered during more than 50 years.

Musical Folklore

The African cultural influence is very strong and is observed very much in the music, dances, clothing, gastronomy, religion, magic and social organization. The music has Afro-American paces with the marimba as characteristical instrument. Percussion instruments, such as the bass-drums, maracas, and drums are also popular.

The food is very rich, assorted, and is based on fish, rice, seafood, fried and familiar banana coconut sauces. The women dress with brilliant colors and preserve the usage of carrying baskets and jugs on their heads. There also exists a complex spiritual world with catholic religion mixtures, budu, magic, with strong beliefs in what is supernatural.

Nobody can resist the captivation of visiting Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands!
