- Duration: Half day
Guayaquil is the Ecuador’s largest city and busiest port. Situated on the Guayas River, this bustling city has an endearing, tropical atmosphere, plenty to experience, and is an important stop on every Ecuador tour. On this short half day tour, we visit several of the city’s highlights such as the Malecon 2000 Boardwalk, the Parque Seminario, a park that features exhibits displaying life in Guayaquil during the 19th century. We will also see an animal rescue centre with wildlife from the threatened dry forest habitat that occurs around Guayaquil.
After viewing the boats and lazy river on the waterfront, learn about signature Guayaquil structures such as the Crystal Palace, the Moorish Tower, and the Governor’s Office. We will also see Santa Ana Hill, the picturesque neighbourhood where the city was founded, see what life was like in Guayaquil a century ago, and enjoy the comical antics of the hundreds of iguanas that share the Seminario Park with its daily visitors.
