Up to the present, all rock art found in Ecuador consists of petroglyphs. The absence of documented rock paintings may be due to conservation conditions. Rock art sites exist in three of the geographic regions – the coast, the Sierra (mountains) and the Amazon lowlands – and are only missing on the Galapagos islands. Nevertheless, reports on these cultural heritage sites are scarce.

Regarding research in the years 2010-2014, only three projects.
