Looking east towards the River Guayas is Guayaquil, recognised as the economic capital and main port of Ecuador with approximately two million inhabitants, many of whom are from other parts of the country. According to the legend, the name comes from an Indigenous chief named Guayas and his wife Quil, who threw themselves into the great river in preference of being conquered by the Spanish.

Guayaquil City Tour

Upon pick up from your hotel we familiarise ourselves with this colourful city, one much different to its highland counterpart, Quito. Known for its fast-pace and bold nature, Guayaquil still has many points of interest, including Parque Simón Bolivar, (popularly known as Parque de las Iguanas). The park is a delightful place for bird lovers as the abundant ficus trees here are home to some truly exotic flycatchers and arboreal Iguanas. Experience the splendid Palacio Municipal and the several monuments including the architecturally severe Gobernacion de la Provincia building situated on the promenade at the waterfront Malecon Simon Bolivar which lines the shore of the Guayas river. Positioned behind the park is a Neo Gothic Cathedral which provides an insight into Guayaquil´s interesting past. In close proximity are the Moorish Tower and the awe inspiring Rotonda Monument portraying Simon Bolivar and Jose San Martin shaking hands. The two South American generals who liberated the continent from Spain met in Guayaquil in 1822.

As we stroll through the attractive district of Las Peñas, amid old houses constructed from timber, we pass art galleries and cafes with beautiful views. On route we visit “Mercado Plaza del Sur”, a metallic structure designed by Eiffel. Heading west of Las Peñas, back to the hotel, we pass an extensive cemetery filled with remarkably ornate tombs, a vestige of times gone by, illustrating Guayaquil´s wealth over the last century. This stimulating three hour tour guides you through the cities pride and joy.

Duration: About 3 hours.
