Many interesting things to see here. From a museum to the typical photo with person size letters made of stone with the name of the city. Cinemas, restaurants, a park and a pond, and beautiful views of the sea!

Easy to get to from any part of the city centre. Relaxing to walk along the river. Some nice restaurants and lots of fast food places. Busy with families on the weekends but quiet during the week. Some nice gardens

One of the prettiest places in Guayaquil, it's a nice stroll along the river with good restaurants, bars and a botanical garden. You can get really nice photos here and spend a very pleasant afternoon.

There is a security guard at every 6 feet or so. They always smile, they are delighted to take a picture of you. You are safe here.... And the air conditioned mall has a lot to choose from. Go ahead and shop the day away... Your friends and family will be grateful for the gifts and the photos you take.

The Malecon is a great place to walk and wander. There's shops, cafes and a foodcourt for you to stop along the way but mainly it's just a great place to walk along the riverside and see the gardens, etc.

This is a really pleasant walk by the river - lots to look at, people to watch, places to stop for drinks and icecream and the breeze from the river. You can go slow and it will take about 1.25 hours from one end to the other.

We walked the whole malecon and back on a late Saturday afternoon. It is a meeting place for families, with lots to see and do. This is the best riverside park we ever seen. There are theaters, malls, restaurants, kids play areas, benches and an atrisan's market. The walk is scattered with works of art, fountains and gardens. A lovely... More
