Las Penas, Guayaquil
(4.5/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Climb the iconic steps of Las Penas and admire the patchwork of color surrounding you. Typified by its multicolored houses, the neighborhood adds a splash of light to Guayaquil as it blankets Cerro Santa Ana and dips down to the river. Sense the history of Guayaquil's oldest residential neighborhood, which also stands out as the only part of the city not to have been burnt down at some point. You'll feel like you're in a painting as you stop for a coffee at one of the bright houses, many of which have been converted into cafes or bars. With our online itinerary creator, Guayaquil attractions like Las Penas can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
