Stayed in an apartment in the Malecon 2000 area during the time the tall ships were around. Nice area, but a lot of traffic and food/beverages are more expensive than other areas of Guayaquil.

Nice walk, a few intresting things to see on it, including ships, monuments, and some gardens. Can get very crowded on sunny days.

We walked most of this and spent time sitting on a variety of benches - some in the shade, some near the river. We picked up some local food including fruit and managed to find a street vendor offering rice with chicken to the nearby...More
