Visit Parque Centenario, a green space full of plants, flowers, pathways, and park benches. At 20 hectares (49 acres), it ranks among the biggest parks in the city. Its inauguration in 1920 marked the centenary of Guayaquil's independence. Look for the statue commemorating the founding fathers, which pays tribute to the heroes who liberated the city on October 9, 1820.

  • It was a nice park. Funny to find lots of elderly men just chilling, and reading their newspapers. Will love to visit again, and watch the city buzzing in the daytime

Where to stay in Guayaquil

Guayaquil's sprawling layout means its center isn't strictly defined, with accommodations spread throughout several neighborhoods. To enjoy the most iconic Guayaquil setting, stay in the riverside neighborhood of Las Penas. For easy access to public parks and some of the best attractions in Guayaquil, stay in the bustling district of La Bahia. If you want a more suburban experience, look farther north to the neighborhood of Simon Bolivar.
