Malecon 2000 allows for a nice walk along the water with a few minor things to see along the way. We walked down to the start from the Iguana Park and continued all the way until Santa Ana Hill. It was a nice walk and took about 40 mins. There was a few statues, restaurants and childrens parks along the... More

Beautiful, verdant space on the river. Great place to stroll, read by the ponds, grab a bite, or visit a museum. The ponds were so beautiful, the designer did a fabulous job.

A lovely stroll alongside the Guyas river with beautiful gardens, restaurants and street artists!!! The shops are a bit more expensive than in town though!

Malecon is the modern day version of Guayaquil's plaza. When I was at the tourist center at the bus station, I asked the local where is their "plaza". She said she did not recommend to go because it is far and dangerous. She told me to go to Malecon instead. So here I went. It is a long boardwalk with... More

Aside from Malecon being a pleasant place to walk, we really did not find much of interest in the area. We were here on a Monday, thus the Museum of Anthropology as well as the Botanical Garden were closed. It would probably have been more interesting had we visited on any other day of the week!

There is heaps to see and do here and plenty of routes to diversify your view. Mixed with old and new attractions it has something for everyone. Walked from Santa Ana to as far as the Henry Morgan Boat, there was plenty of gardens, a clock tower, a shopping centre, eateries, park areas for children to play whilst walking along... More

Guayaquil has around five major sites to see within the city limits. Malecon 2000 is the # 1 site on my list. I stayed at the Ramada Inn Hotel right across from the Malecon. The Malecon which is a technically river walk with shopping, cafes, and restaurants available. You can also enjoy a boat or ferry ride along the river.... More

This is definitely the place to visit when you come here. The riverwalk is well maintained and you have a view of the river with the wonderful historical monuments. The mall is on the lower section of the riverwalk, and the area has several beautiful parks within the area

We were advised to take some time in our 4 hour layover to walk here and in Santa Ana. Well worth it! Lots of local families on a Saturday afternoon, lots of security guards along route. Breezier than other parts of town. Some areas were closed, do not understand why. There are movie theaters, museums, aquarium, boat tours, bars, but... More
