Malecon 2000, Guayaquil

Categories: Piers & Boardwalks, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web
A model of urban regeneration, Malecon 2000 provides a wide range of attractions and entertainment options along the Guayas River. Once little more than a pathway, the boardwalk fell into disrepair in the 20th century before its re-inauguration as a public space in 1999. Wander along the 2.5 km (1.5 mi) waterfront packed with monuments, historical buildings, gardens, museums, and more. Afterwards, kick back with a drink or a bite to eat at one of the many food courts, bars, and cafes scattered along its length, or simply find a comfortable green space and people-watch.

  • The number of people depends on the schedule, staff go day and when there are no people. The view is very good and you can learn more from Guayaquil.

  • In the city centre near the Cathedral, was revitalised is good for walking, but what caught my attention were the tents of outdoor painters, doing your jobs in front of tourists

  • Safe place to walk along the water. A lot of fast food places which serve typical local food (KFC and McDonalds are also there). We walked all the way down towards La Peña and up to the top of La Peña which has a view over the city. Nothing special overall bit it is a nicer, cleaner part of the city with lots of security guards.
  • There are tons of stores you can shop in here. It's in a relatively safe part of the city. They also take credit cards in most of the stores here so you don't have to carry cash with you. The clothes here are a bit pricier, but it is worth it for the peace of mind you get from increased security.
  • Don't like the huge amount of ppl selling water, in the bathroom the soap it's not that good it's more like water
  • Do you want to buy some stuffs like clothes, shoes, video games? Well, a good option is the Malecón Mall and at the same time you can stroll through the Malecón 2000.
  • Great place to walk, shop and take photos. I was able to walk a mile of it a few times.
