There are playgrounds with a lot of kids but there's some restaurants and a movie theater and the library which was supposed to be open but was closed along with an art museum same thing well worth the walk, nice outdoor activity along the river with lots of seating (park benches)

It is a good place where you can go with your family to walk and eat at one of the restaurants placed on the riverside. There are a lot of policeman watching everything that occurs, you can feel sure being in malecon. You can hire bikes to take a ride. It would be a good idea. If you go there... More

It's just a promenade with lots of (mainly fast food) restaurants and not much else to do... Except you wanna take a picture with the letters reading "guayaquil". However, it's nice for a short walk during the day as well as during the night, but definitely no must-see.

We went in an Monday early afternoon so I don't know if our timing was not good on this but it was quiet and not much to do. Interesting historical items... More
