Santa Ana hill view in Guayaquil, Ecuador


Visit Guayaquil


Set on the banks of the Guayas River and boasting an abundance of pretty parks and squares, historic Barrios (neighbourhoods) such as Las Peñas,the vibrant waterfront area of Malecón, where you'll find lively cafes, late night bars and some of the city's best restaurants, Guayaquil ­- Ecuador's main port and largest city - is a wonderful place to spend a few days.

Those lucky enough to be heading to the Galapagos will more than likely pass through here en route to and from the country's capital Quito, but even if your Ecuador travel plans don't include a visit to the famous Archipiélago de Colón (the Galapagos Island's official name), it's still worth spending a few days exploring this fascinating and colourful riverside city.
