Ecuador & Galapagos Islands: Guayaquil

Visit Us

Until quite recently a scruffy Pacific port with a dubious reputation, Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest city is a newly emergent commercial and cultural centre, showing off freshened up plazas and boulevards, a charming waterside malécon (promenade), good hotels and trendy restaurants. Always a flamboyant place in comparison with the upland cities, it has a vivacious atmosphere. The river Guayas is chock-a-bloc with boats jostling for space, some laden down with tropical fruits and sugar cane, others offering transport to distant villages. The historic quarter of Las Peñas nearby is an arty district with a tumble of toybox multicoloured houses, galleries and bars.

What our experts say

I was pleasantly surprised by the port city.  it is very clean with wide avenues, parks, interesting monuments and a nice promenade very popular with families. Here, there is lots of entertainment for children, small shops selling handcrafts and food stalls. When I wandered along here music was playing and the area was well lit with a good, safe atmosphere.
