Why Visit?

While in Guayaquil there is a lot to see. The famous Malecon 2000 is one of -if not the- largest tourist attraction in Guayaquil. Take a walk down this boardwalk along the Guayas River and stop off at different shops, parks and restaurants along the way.

At one end of the Malecon is the famous Las Peñas neighborhood. This neighborhood of colorfully painted homes is built on the Santa Ana hill. A huge staircase takes you through the neighborhood to a lighthouse, where you get some of the best views of the city.

Other attractions include:

  • The Iguana Park – Full of free wandering iguanas.
  • The Parque Historico – Take a trip back in time as you walk through rebuilt and restored buildings from colonial Guayaquil. Plus explore the park’s zoo and gardens.
  • Botanical Garden – Guayaquil’s Botanical Garden is said to be one of the best in Ecuador. It’s a great place to enjoy some peace and quiet in the big city.


Guayaquil has very distinct wet and dry seasons like most of Ecuador’s coast.

  • The Dry Season: May through December. Dry air means cooler temps.
  • The Wet Season: January through April. Hot and humid.
