Centro Comercial Artesanal is a very large marketplace that is located in Guayaquil and where you can enjoy various shops as: restaurants, shoe shops, clothes shop, handmade ornaments, hats of paja toquilla, and various crafts.
It has a spacious parking lot and the things are a bit cheap and the best of all is that you can bargain! It is very nice to buy gifts to our friends that visit us and for us.
Security is extends until to the underground parking, admission is by Street José de Antepara. While on the top floor is the food court where visitors can taste the typical dishes of Ecuador. I recommend it to you!

Excellent Place for Food + Shopping

The Food Court was packed! There must have been at least 20 different food stalls there. Lots of meats + some American fast food chains. The mall also has at least 3 full service restaurants. Lots of shops. Prices are like in US and as the currency is US $, it is easy to compare.

"The Mall Is Nice...., The Rest of The City Sucks...".
Apr 2015 • Couples
I have been to Guayaquil a total of 3 times in the past six months. I have spent at least 45 days in Guayaquil, and another 45 days traveling throughout Ecuador. Guayaquil is the "TOILET" of Ecuador. What I am about to say is NOT exaggerated. These are "hard core" facts. You cannot walk more than ONE city block anywhere that I have been in Guayaquil..., without tripping on a broken sidewalk, uneven pavement, missing utility covers (metal) in the sidewalks, missing total pieces of sidewalk, missing paving bricks, "open" eight inch wide gutters crossing directly across the sidewalk without a steel grate..., you name it..., I have walked on, through, around or fell on it. It is a disgrace on the condition of this city. Apparently there is , or never has been a building code in this city. Nothing EVER looks completed. Even when a building is completed..., there are pieces of re bar sticking out of the top on the building, piles of rubble on the sidewalk, parking lot or in a vacant lot. I am staying at a hotel near the airport. I am on the second floor. When I look out my bathroom window..., I still see "rotten" scaffold boards of the hotel's ledges. Yes..., eight foot long 2"x12" wooden planks. I also challenge any city official to show me any set of steps built that has ALL of the steps the same height. Choose five sets of stairs randomly, and I will guarantee you that if a set of stairs has 6 or 7 risers..., one of them will NOT be the same height as the others in this set of stairs. This is NO place for older visitors, or those with a walking handicap. "Wheelchair Accessible"..., what is that...???? A person cannot even navigate down a sidewalk, cross a street and go up a set of stairs without risking injury..., not alone some handicapped person trying to navigate these streets. "Is there NO ONE that cares about Ecuador's older citizens or handicapped people"...? It is difficult to find a set of stairs that has a handrail...! It is NO WONDER that one does NOT see to many individuals "out and about" that are over 60 years of age. Yes..., the mall is nice..., but it is like someone took the mall and strapped it to a helicopter and dropped it off in the middle of a filthy, trash ridden, poorly maintained, graffiti trashed section of the city. Actually..., this is probably one of the better parts of the city..., it only gets worse from here. I blame the people of Ecuador for accepting to live this way, but I blame the politician's more because they should be leading the way..., and they are DOING NOTHING....! Politicians....,! Wake up....! Put out some trash cans. Start at one end of the city and put some people to work cleaning up this place. Start power washing this city from one end to the other. Paint some lines on the streets, curbs, and highways. Put on a tax and start replacing these sidewalks and curbs. "One curb is 3 inches high and the next one is 12 inches high after you cross the street". Put into place some building codes and enforce them. My God..., every time I turn my head there is a "group" of police officers walking or standing, or on a motorcycle, truck, or car...., they cannot see who is littering, and doing this graffiti....??? Really, I think that this city has much to offer, but it will never become a tourist attraction because it is "a toilet" of a city....! I read another review of this city and the woman really summed it up well. She said, "Guayaquil is a city made up of cement and block walls that are in dire need of being painted, iron gates and barbed wire fences, graffiti everywhere, and ankle deep in trash on streets and sidewalks that are in massive need of repair...". If everyone got out there broom, and took 15 minutes out of their day...., and just swept up directly in front of their home, business, or school..., Guayaquil could improve immensely in less that one hour..., think about it....!

Mall del Sol
Jan 2015 • Business
This mall has almost everything. Stores, food, restaurant, banks and even offices for rent. The mall is connected to Sonesta hotel and to other stores.

Top restaurants: Segundo Muelle (peruvian) and Noe (sushi). Both of the highly recommended.

Movies, sports bar, and other.

My office is near by and this mall always solves my necessities.

If you don't want to waste time trying to find a parking spot, use the paid parking at Sonesta Hotel. You will pay a fee but you can save hours....

There are one or more pictures of this mall that do not belong to it.
