this area over many things to do and see. The many shops, restaurants, and just places to sit and people watch. It was very nice to see the vibrance of the place. I felt comfortable and relaxed here. You can get a good cup of coffee anywhere in the area.

Good place to walk around. Lots of places to get wet and lots of fun for small children. But if you come with teen it will be more difficult because of the heat.

guayaquil is to be avoided. very little to see or do or even places to eat. plus, the warnings of danger seem to be everywhere. i encountered none of that but there was little to do.
