Guayaquil & Surroundings
...........
Guayaquil, known as the “Pacific Pearl” is the largest and most populous city in Ecuador. Located on the Pacific coast, it has a warm and tropical weather and considered our country’s main port, therefore of a great economic importance and support to Ecuador.

It was founded on July 25, 1534 by Francisco de Orellana on the outskirts of Santa Ana hill. On the top of the hill you will be able to see the trace of the cruel battle between Guayaquilenians and pirates. Few houses keep their original architecture, with defense walls facing the river. Many of these houses were built at different levels on the hill, very typical of the Spaniards.

The surroundings of the city offer archeological sites of the pre-Hispanic cultures of Chorrera, Machalilla, Guangala, Valdivia, and Manteña. The Guayas River, the most beautiful beaches, Guayaquil’s gulf, monuments, museums, parks, and its tireless night life is why we highly recommend you to visit this city!!

Places to Visit: Malecon 2000; Barrio las Peñas “The Peñas neighborhood” ; The Clock Tower ; 9 de Octubre Avenue ; Centenario Park ; La Rotonda ; El Mirador ; Civic Center ; General Cemetery ; Seminario Park or well know as the Iguanas Park ; Historical Park ; Botanical garden ; Cerro Blanco Protected Forest ; Puerto Hondo Mangroves
