"The town of Jama derives its name from the fascinating Jama-Coaque people who inhabited the forested landscapes that surrounded the coastline of the Manabi province's northern region. They are an ancient civilization that inhabited the region several thousand years ago, and through archaeological research much has been learnt about this fascinating community. It is known that as far back as 500 BC the Jama-Coaque people were using canoes made of balsa wood to navigate the waters of the Pacific Ocean, and it is said that they were very able and skilled seafarers. They were in fact such an advanced community that they took on trade expeditions to Chile and Mexico. The Jama-Coaque communities were skilled in creating ceramic pottery items as well, which again showed that they were a very sophisticated tribe. The pottery recovered from the sites is on display at the Jama Municipal Museum. Tragically, the entire culture was lost when the Spanish invaded Ecuador on a mission to conquer the Inca Empire."
