Renting a Car in Guayaquil

My husband and I, along with my 17 yr old son, are arriving in Guayaquil on a Saturday early afternoon, and will be renting a car for our drive to Salinas. We have rented in other countries, Costa Rica -that was an adventure - and have driven many scary roads with NO signage (!) and with even scarier drivers, so we are ready to drive in EC.

My question is this: once we leave the airport, is there a safer /more direct route to take to get out of the city, without having to go through 'bad areas?" We are ok with no signs, if someone can give us (updated) landmarks that would be so helpful!

What route would you recommend?

Thank you,

Well the road to Salinas is in pretty good condition now, one thing is true, there is no signage at all. After you leave the airport you should head to "Los Ceibos" go trough "Urdesa" neighborhood which is a little longer than the fastest route which is the "Perimetral" road but is much safer. Once you are in the main road of "Los Ceibos" you should keep driving ahead in that big street passing the toll booth and then you will see the signage of Salinas.
