Stretching for several miles along the Rio Guayas, this lively boardwalk is well-patrolled day and night and features small food stands, other eateries and a blend of historic and modern buildings.

Was quite hot but there are shaded areas. Lots to do around there. Well laid out with some impressive historical monuments.

One of the nearest if not the nearest is the Ramada. It's a four-star hotel and many of the rooms have a view of the river. It's close to a museum and the recently inaugurated wheel called La Perla. The Wyndham is also a... More
