    I charm the ride worth rent a bicycle and go out to exercise. I recommend to go early before the Sun hit strong. You need better maintenance, I think that it should be able to deliver bicycle at any point and it is where not only collected but forced plays back on the same side, and not all endure this return bike. Cute place!

    Very good the idea of crossing Santay island by bicycle. The bridge is perfect for taking good photographs of Guayaquil. The island is a nice ride, but it is essential to take repellent of mosquitoes. You can visit the community two positions (Artisan), sale of juices, water and snacks. The people are very friendly. In the same tour you can visit the crocodiles.

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.
