“Nice but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This is a must see site but do not expect too much. Not much to see but nice walk on the waterfront. Limited food and not real attractions

“Great place to walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Everyone was out walking about--singles, couples, families. I enjoyed looking at the statues, the Barque Guayas school ship (a 3-masted tall ship), and being right next to the water. At the end there was a shopping area with a multitude of small shops. All I did was browse, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

“Over rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We heard this was theplace to be but not safe at night.
Firstly there is little going on unless you have kids eho may want to play in the designated play areas. It was totally safe as so busy.
Few restaurants overlooking filthy river water so not so scenic.
Not a tourist attraction in my view

“Relaxing walk along the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice, clean, safe place to walk and see some local culture. The central cathedral is close by as well as "las Penas". Whenever I am in town i try to take the time to go by here.

“Beautiful Walk with lots of shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This was a very safe walking area where you could enjoy the views and watch as families clamored with their children. It was also seemed to be a popular place for couples to spend the day relaxing.
