This tour begins at Parque Seminario, also known as the Iguana’s Park, where countless green iguanas live and thrive (a completely unusual and impressive sight). We walk by the wonderful City Hall building and the Moorish Clock Tower to arrive at Malecón Simón Bolívar, a beautifully designed two-mile long waterfront along the Guayas River.
We will stroll along the promenade to the historic neighborhood of Las Peñas and reach the top of Santa Ana Hill, for a one-and-only panoramic view of the city.
We then head over to the city’s cemetery to admire impressive mausoleums and tombs carved in Carrara marble by Italian sculptors during the cocoa boom of the early 20th century. Across the river, we visit the Guayaquil Historic Park, and learn about the nature and culture of Ecuador’s coastal plains.
Discover an animal park in the middle of lush native flora and see a selection locally endangered species such as tapirs, spider monkeys, crocodiles, sloths, macaws and parrots. In the cultural section of the park we will admire the beautiful wooden residences of old Guayaquil, as well as typical rural houses built on stilts. It includes a typical Guayaquil treat.
Then we head out to Cerro Paraíso, located in the Bellavista neighborhood, for a more beautiful view of the city. As we return to our hotel, we pass the Estero Salado, a natural estuary that cuts through the city (with its mangroves, iguanas and egrets) and beautiful Centenario Park, the city’s most impressive square. Typical Guayaquil… snack included.
