  • On the banks of the estuary of the same name, with an area of 400 meters, it was built in 2009, as part of the process of urban regeneration of the city. He recovered and rehabilitated this arm of the sea, which at one time was a popular spa, and that today as Park is a pride of the Guayaquil and a great tourist attraction.

  • I think it is a mistake to compare to this pier of the Salado Estero with the Malecón Simón Bolívar (banks of the Guayas River), fun approach is totally different, one speaks of the metropolis from Guayaquil and one of its natural attractions, then let me list the most outstanding: in the North view of can see the movement of the University Citadel then there is a platform from where you can enjoy a wide view of Av. 9 de October. Moving towards the South a typical food of the City Court will be and ends with a breathtaking view of the bridge of the ship from where you can see beautiful sunsets.

  • A great touristic area where you can take more than hundred photos. You will observe beautiful landscapes that can delight you during day or night time. The area is protected by security guards which tend to minimize petty crimes. There are restrooms that remain clean and available to the public. A must see area if you are visiting Guayaquil.
  • Nice landscape and to watch birds
  • Very relaxing and great views.

  • The malecón del Salado is a very traditional place for students who meet to discuss homework and various points of meals and bars that exist in the area. Likewise account confidently however not be neglected since criminals can go wandering the sector.
