A nice place for an evening walk. A lot of people, but great for people watching. A few nice restaurants in the neighborhood as well.

This is how a waterfront is supposed to developed, well-planned. It has multiple parks with living space, restaurants, bars, ponds even a zen garden and if you walk far enough, you get to Las Penas.

Explored this area with a guide and once again felt very safe. Not much to see except for the river, but it was very relaxing.

This urban renewal project revitalized the boardwalk for about a mile and a half along the Guayas River and includes a number of attractions for kids and a few restaurants (including one fast food court). It's an impressive effort and is kept immaculately clean -- we saw one crew scrubbing the sidewalks with soap. The space is also tightly controlled... More

This was the perfect place to take a walk on a hot day. There was a beautiful artist exhibit and we ate at a nice restaurant right on the boardwalk/Malecon. The fresh shrimp I couldn't get enough of!

A large promenade with trees, benches, that gets cleaned several times a day and is constantly under close watch. No street vendors are allowed. You find cultural, commercial activities and even a small theme park for the young.
