Guayaquil

Pearl of the Pacific
Hills dotted with colorful houses and waterfront promenades typify Guayaquil, Ecuador's largest city and commercial center. Founded by Spanish colonialists on the site of a preexisting indigenous settlement, the city of nearly 2.7 million people serves as Ecuador's heart in every sense except the political one. A blend of skyscrapers, traditional buildings, and hillside shantytowns reflects the area's diverse mix of inhabitants and make for rewarding tours of Guayaquil. Recent restoration efforts and the development of a thriving arts scene have helped Guayaquil tourism continue to grow.

Where to stay in Guayaquil

Guayaquil's sprawling layout means its center isn't strictly defined, with accommodations spread throughout several neighborhoods. To enjoy the most iconic Guayaquil setting, stay in the riverside neighborhood of Las Penas. For easy access to public parks and some of the best attractions in Guayaquil, stay in the bustling district of La Bahia. If you want a more suburban experience, look farther north to the neighborhood of Simon Bolivar.
