Great place to stroll along the river. Lots of sights to see. Plenty of shops and places to eat while walking. Many nearby attractions so, map out a course and spend the morning or hot afternoon checking the river walk area. Wear a hat and sunscreen.

Great spot to stroll by the river. Shops and food. Navy band playing as we walked. Relaxing stroll. Went in the evening so not a lot open but was very nice.

Guayaquil is not one of those cities tha offer to much to do, but el Malecon is a nice place to stroll and watch people and watch several landmarks and monuments. It used to be a run down and unsafe area, but a renewal project back on 200 made it into one of the safest and nicest places to visit... More

when I was first coming to the Malecon it was just a touristy thing to do...but now as I stay regularly and explore there is so much to enjoy...amazing botanical gardens, great museums, and all are free...food courts, people watching...nice place to meet a lady

There is no much to do in Guayaquil. I was able to walk the Malecon several times in a day because is actually short. They have an IMAX theater and a free museum close by. Feels safe and a lot of people visit the place.

We came here expecting a whole day of shopping and entertainment so maybe that's why we were slightly underwhelmed. The area is very nice, you can walk along for ages and there are some nice things to see but the shopping mall was quite disappointing. It's just full of cheap, samey shops...

A wonderful place to spend a few hours - although it is best to go towards evening when the temperature starts to drop. This is a very long park that runs many blocks along the coast. There are lots of tropical plantings, statues, food courts, and places to sit. This is a great place to people-watch. There are small playgrounds... More

full of activities for both adults and kids. Our children loved the small park and electric cars races next to the cinema complex. Also the gardens are very well mantained. There are too many touts offering from water to snacks everywhere though.

We went to Guayaquil by Christmas time and they decorate this place specially for the occasion. This is one of those places where you can relax, have a drink or food. Ask for the yacht tour across the Guayas River. They have an old fashioned ship to do so, it's a nice experience. You can feed the fish in an... More
