Welcome to Zumba & the Peruvian Border


Zumba was an important military outpost during the wars with Peru between the 1940s and 1990s. The wars are over, but there’s still an Ecuadorian military post here, and soldiers roam all over town. The main activity here is the adventurous journey on into Peru. From Loja or Vilcabamba, it’s an all-day trip to the Peruvian town of San Ignacio – the best place to spend the night.
