We were driven around by a business contact while on a visit to Guayaquil. This was the first place we visited. Some of us are very much concerned with safety and security and I have to say that it looks really safe. It is clean and very nicely laid out, with areas for the kids and monuments along the way....

Because my daughter love to walk the almost 2.5 KM one way and 2.5 KM coming back from the first parking lot that is placed below the crystal House or Casa de Cristal, to the first steps of Las Peñas passing the shoppings clothes and foods stores. If you will go to visit during the day please carry with you... More

I just thought that the malecon is a great place to spend an afternoon; going for a coffee, trying the local ice cream and just getting to know the lovely city that is Guayaquil.

Great spot to soak in the local culture. In the evening there is a carnival and shops as well as live music.

Closed officially until 07:00 (in reality about 06:30) any vagrants are kept out so it is a very pleasant walking area with a mix of historical monuments and modern attractions. Also safe at night when it is colourfully lit. Provides a walk way from the centre of town to Cerro Santa Ana.

This place is absolutely boring. A big fence and a lot of police/security, old and overcrowded playgrounds, some food- and stuffsellers... Sorry, if this is one of Guayaquils main attractions, skip Guayaquil.

I had been staying with friends up the coast where people were so poor that some people had neither doors nor windows. Then we came here for dinner one night. It was so Clean and shiny and bright, and dinner was the best.

Come for lunch or dinner and eat with the locals along the Malecon. Plenty of little take out restaurants line the Malecon offering everything from Ceviche to Chinese. Don't be one of those people who skips on on all the great seafood in favor of McDonald's. Lots of birds and bird poo, just consider it good luck if you're in... More

The Malecon 2000 is a nice place to visit, the view is great and you can interact with the locals. The only thing i won't recommend is the boat tour, i know is only 3 dollars per person but it's one of the worst experiences ever, they say the ride will last 40 minutes, it is only 25 minutes! They... More
