Malecon 2000, Guayaquil

(4.4/5 based on 2,600+ 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. Use our Guayaquil holiday planner to arrange your visit to Malecon 2000 and other attractions in Guayaquil.

  • Not there is much to see in Guayaquil and this is a ride to outdoor that is can do without problems. Serves if you have little time. At the end there are a few stores that have everything.

  • Walking through it, is the arrival in Guayaquil's richer experience. Sculptures, exhibitions for children, a panoramic wheel, boating on the Lake, all charming and new your driveway, makes you walk and walk without stopping through it.

  • Especially for those nights. Very colorful and full of people... A secure environment feels and without doubt would traverse it. The only bad thing was that to exit to the av. 9 de Octubre must find a way out between all the metal fence surrounding the Boardwalk... I guess that it is for security, but beyond the night walk was satisfactory!

  • Amazing experience visiting my wife's home town I loved the people, i loved this place it is by far one of the best ports that i have visited.
  • 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.
