  • Great fun to see these lizards all around, without a care in the world, just lazing around or munching the grass.......that's a good life to have
  • Big park downtown near metrovida stop. Not much to see here
  • Also called "Plaza del Centenario" in the center of Guayaquil's Downtown, you can get there in whatever means of transportation like busses (METROVIA) and Taxis. If are guest of our city and been in hotel located in the downtown area, you should walk and experience a new way to site scene.
