Piedra Blanca [1] is a small community in Bolivar Province, Ecuador. The community has traditionally lived by agricultural farming, fish farming and logging. An ecotourism project now provides an alternative to logging as the locals accompany tourists to the forest, local cultural sites of interest, other local villages and on rafting expeditions.
