Modern part of Guayaquil where new high rise builings are being made, try walking down the promenade next to the river, where you can appreciate the most amazing views of the Guayas River. Follow the path to las Peñas neighborhood where you will find the birthplace of Guayaquil, bars, jazz clubs, open air art exhibitions, amazing colonial architecture will wait... More

The Santa Ana Port (Puerto Santa Ana) is a nice place to take a peaceful walk during the late afternoon Monday thru Thursday. I was staying the Ramada Inn right across from the Malecon 2000. You could see the Santa Ana Hill from the street outside of my hotel. Santa Ana was only a 15 minute walk away. It is... More

My family and I came here after going to the Artesenal market for the second time (as its at the base of Las Peñas.) It was kind of boring with not much to see. Walk along the boardwalk, there are some plants and park benches. Not much else. No bathrooms in the area, you've got to head back to the... More

Just a neighourhood along the river after Las Peñas. Visibly swanky but except the three small museums located there, there is not much to see and do. Unless you are interested in buying a condo.

WE enjoyed a short walking tour of Santa Ana Port, and really enjoyed learning about the area. The upscale housing along the water was beautiful!

The concept when created was great. It was supposed to be an area with several high class apartment buildings and markets on a riverfront walk. Unfortunately they constructed it and not too many people bought the apartments and many of the shops where never rented so the place looks just desolated. I would definitively go to the Cerro Santa Ana... More

Tucked in along side San Penas at the top end of the Malecon. Well worth a bit of a stroll, quiet and peaceful; seemed safe enough. Parts still seem to be under construction. Good views of the river.

This place is great if you just want to chill, bring a book, but there is in here, I guess you can just walk to the Malecon from here (free parking), and you can go from here to Las Peñas if you so desired. Place is clean and safe, lots of guards and cleaning crews, not a lot of shops... More
