“Very nice excursion”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The historic park is across the large bridge going to Samborondon Island (where you will find one lush guarded complex with villas after the other (coming from Quito you overfly normally this island, the airport is on the other side on the mainland) The park has a small zoological garden with a green tropical walkway, and colonial mansions brought there from the Malecon river side, showing the opulence of rich cacao and other merchants in the 19th century. Very nice excursion.

“Park has it all”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

I loved the park! And they really do have it all. Animals, history, beautiful scenery and culture. At no charge. This is a self directed tour. You begin by the zoo section where you follow a path through the park viewing all sorts of Ecuadorian animals with descriptions posted about them. Then you reach a historic town setting with guided tours of their buildings. And lastly cutural living quarters with animals. It was a great day and a fabulous way to start my trip in Ecuador!

“Well Maintained Park”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Park highlights some of the natural wonders of Ecuador and especially of the coastal area's unique features. Great opportunity to take some pictures with the wildlife and take a nice stroll through the park.

I enjoyed myself.

“Friendly and safe”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

As with everywhere in this area of Guayaquil, there is a heavy police presence. The day I visited there were many families enjoying the afternoon at the park. Nice atmosphere.
