    Experience two of the most interesting destinations in the country. You will be picked up from your hotel and be transported to Alausi, a little town considered a national heritage. In this charming town, you will ride the train known as "The Devil’s Nose". In its day, it was considered one of the greatest feats of engineering that the world had seen. This railway was built in 1899 with the intent of linking the coastal city of Guayaquil with the highlands capital of Quito.
