There was a mix of locals and tourists walking through this waterfront park. It was mostly clean and seemed safe. Unfortunately the river flowing next to it was extremely polluted.

This is a lovely waterfront walk that has people of all ages enjoying each other's company and the surrounding views. As the sun set, I didn't feel threatened at all as there were security, lights and numerous families. Go for a run, enjoy a snack...More

We walked the entire length & back one day as it took us to the steps of Las Penas. The children's play areas are colorful and new...maybe too many coin operated rides though. Ferris wheel looked good but I couldn't get anyone in my group...More

If staying at a hotel nearby, this is a great place to walk all the time as it is so safe. Lots of security at all times, and is fenced off. Several kilometres of walking beside the river with lots of things to see, a...More

This is one of the places to see and be seen, when in Ecuador. Malecon has condos, shopping, history (right at the river's edge), and is safe during the day - maybe even at night, but I visited during the day. It is a vibrant...More

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
