  • Nice place known as santa isla ... it is a land formed near guayaquil. Great place to visit for spending your vacation for a day only. You can do cycling, running in the island.  more »
  • The journey to last is the best bike, live a moment in communion with nature, step in Santay can view the Crocodile Farm off and see the way of life of the inhabitants. From the bridge which at Santay with will last for a good view of duran and part of gye. Recommend a good hat, sunscreen, and comfortable clothes. go in the morning if you don't own bike, because car rental are exhausted if you go in winter season a good repellent and if she is raining wait to stop the rain, because the trail is wood and becomes slippery.
