This is also called "the park of the
iguanas", as they roam around the park undisturbed and perch on the
treetops, blending perfectly with the green leaves. Beside the park is
the neo-gothic Metropolitan Cathedral.
Drive through the open
market of La Bahía, and the Spanish shipyard, now a
Naval Museum. Then, a stroll along Guayaquil's new
and ravishing Malecon 2000, a 2.5 Km. (1.5 mile)
waterfront, running parallel to the River Guayas and featuring historical, cultural and entertainment
areas. To the north of the waterfront is Santa Ana
Hill and the oldest neighborhood of Guayaquil, Las
Peñas, which has been beautifully restored with
bright colored wooden constructions housing many art
galleries. The next stop is Guayaquil's cemetery
with outstanding marble sculptures by famous Italian
artists and then drive along the newest
neighborhoods in the Sanborondón area.
