The Malecon 2000 is a stretch of promenade of about 2 km where many adult and child activities are available. It borders the Guaya River, and one can take boats, speed boats or even the "Captain Morgan's Ship" to view the city from the outside.

Guayaquil has put a lot of time, effort, design and money into developing this beautiful place. Residents come out in full force to enjoy it. Be a local and join them.

We stayed in the Malecon area from Christmas till after New Year. The beach area was well packed with families. You can rent chairs and umbrellas and enjoy water activities. The area has plenty of souvenir shops and eating places.

Bustling walk near the water in Guayaquil. Lots of people, lots of restaurants, La Perla ferris wheel. It is a sight.

This area has been developed as a magnificent walking area along the river that includes a variety of civic art and memorials. Large tour groups were evident and parking structures allowed easy access for cars. A great place for families with young children, tourists and folks interested in the history of Guayaquil.

Not much to see but not much areas to walk around in Guayaquil that they encourage tourists to do for safety reasons. It's ok.

Very nice area for a walk if it isn't too hot. I suggest to stop by and ride the new Ferris wheel "La Perla" which has become the coolest local attraction, and take a picture on the famous "Guayaquil" sign.

Very clean and safe (lots of guards around). Lots to see and do. The new ferries wheel is fun. A gathering point for many families and young Lovers. Great landscaping and plenty of trash cans (rare here). Tons of things to see and do.

A walkway along the river dotted with a few restaurants - nothing elegant or special - and the odd tourist store, kid´s playground, and a few tourist attractions. Like the rest of Guayaquil, it´s nothing to write home about.
