The Ruta del Sol (English: Route of the Sun) is an amateur motor race for charity using a VW Beetle to race from Quito, Ecuador to Rio, Brazil, a distance of some 7000 km.
The Ruta Del Sol, organised by the Adventurists, took place in February 2008. It took the teams into the wilds of Latin America through thousands of miles of hardcore jungles and rainforest, the Andes, awful roads, complete absence of roads and tropical weather. Each team taking part has to provide their own VW Beetle and to raise a minimum amount for charity.
Fundecruz was the official charity of the February 2008 Ruta del Sol.
