Essentially an outdoor strip mall. Nice walk along a dirty river, lots of fast food chains and cheap tacky shops. Ok to do, since there isn't much else in the city, but really, it's a why bother.

This is one of many faces of Guayaquil, and definitely one of the nicest and most interesting. See the Moorish Tower, the Simon Bolivar and San Martín Monument, the impressive city and county office buildings, the list of taxpayers financing the Malecón 2000, the Crystal Palace, designed by Eiffel etc. etc. Take a break and see the river going up-...

This mile and a half walk along the Guayaquil River is very relaxing and enjoyable. We found shops, restaurants and local history along the boardwalk. There are several places for children to play as well.

This is a very nice boardwalk along the river. There are a lot of activities and a number of boat tours available. At the end there is a movie theater and a walk up into an area that has a lot of artists shops and restaurants.

Good promenade to stretch your legs, well laid out and cooler than the city streets. Fountains and gardens, eating places, well worth the walk from from one end to other.

The river walk is a nice place and has family attractions and vendors. It can get very crowded during events but I did not feel uncomfortable.

Worth the stroll to see the locals, the waterfront, and some other attractions, though not exactly the electricity of the banks of the Seine or the Thames.
