This port, bustling with life is the proud heir to cultural benchmarks and token samples of its generous, wondrous nature. A stroll along the "MALECON 2000" brand-new waterfront under the canopy of mango trees is a sneak preview to its tropical vibes.

The visit starts along the main avenue of Guayaquil, the heart of the business district of the city, by the Centennial Park that honors the heroes of Guayaquil's independence. A stop is made at Bolívar Park, with an equestrian statue of South America's liberator, Simón Bolívar.


Park of the Iguanas

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.
