Sea air in Guayaquil

Sea air in Guayaquil

Far from Andean mountains and more than 400 kilometres south of Quito on Ecuador's coastline, Guayaquil is the commercial heart of the country.

Guayaquil, Ecuador's economic capital, as all the traits of a seaside resort where you will enjoy wandering around and feeling sea sprays. Take a stroll on the Malecón 2000, Guayaquil's iconic seafront ending with The Point, Ecuador's tallest skyscraper showcasing a unique twisted structure. You can visit the historic Las Peñas neighbourhood, of particular interest for its colonial and colourful architecture style. Walk along the Calle Numa Pompilio Llona, leading to the Cerro Santa Ana hill covered with houses forming a rainbow-colour pattern. Climb up the 444 steps to its highest point and face the wind on the staircase that will take you to the top of the blue and white El Faro lighthouse. From there, you will enjoy unobstructed views over the entire city centre and the Pacific coast. Adventure lovers will also get on board a genuine pirate ship, infamous Henry Morgan's own vessel. Or why not explore the mangrove surrounding Ecuadorian coasts in a canoe? Get your fill of thrills!
