We took a walk around the Malecon 2000 and saw the shops catering to tourists, the brackish river, and the walkways. Generally not impressed but I may have just missed the highlights somehow.

The Malecon itself borders the water with restaurants, museums, and a few stray kitties along the way for you to love on. Different days of the week and different... More

Me & my friend travelled around Ecuador in July. We came across the Malecon, this is a lovely strip alongside the lake in Guayaquil with trees, shrubs, statues and stunning views, as well as some unique underground shops. Was really nice walking down here in the sunshine with a nice cold drink!

If you are in Guayaquil you must visit the Malecon. A stroll along the waterfront in the late afternoon or early evening will expose you to a wide range of activities, as families gather for festivities and young people engage in interesting activities.

This is a great and diverse place. The melanin is Loooooong, so go with your comfy shoes. It is juts beautiful at nights, jut one of the few public places open until 12:00am in guayaquil. The "Imax" cinema S good (Hated the Round like Planetarium Ceiling/Screen)…

Good selection of fast food places, restaurants and high end shopping , Not really my thing but saw condors flying the top of the high building and awesome sunset over the ocean view.

Malecon 2000 is one of the most touristic place in Guayaquil. But... Don't get to excited as there is nothing much to do there. They have few shops (but they try to get more money out of the American people). It's a nice place to go for a walk, but the view of the lagoon is... Not that great.

Wonderful riverside attraction. Yes, the river is dirty, but the parks add refreshing shade and colour to the waterfront. Children will love it!

If like me, you arrive in Guayaquil feeling nervous! due to crime reports! but find the city a wonder and seemingly safe!, well here in this waterside walkway... you'll feel at total ease!, and walkway? there is so much to see here! from amazing sculptures, to crafts, shopping, many many eating ventures offering foods from around the world!, local displays,...
