It’s a must visit if you want to see what the Old Guayaquil looked like 100 years ago. These old wooden houses were saved from fires and stored for decades, before mounted back in a similar scenario. The houses are authentic.

Nice little zoo and park. We enjoyed looking at the animals and the restored building in the park. We were able to see a number of the birds from the area and I liked how the zoo was divided up into ecosystems.
