Get a glimpse into how the city looked a century ago at Parque Historico Guayaquil, where you can also get to know local traditions, rural customs, and native wildlife. Stroll along elevated pathways through banana plants, a dry tropical forest, and mangrove trees, and observe birds, reptiles, and other animals in their natural habitat. See old farming tools and learn about the life of farmers who worked the rice fields, coffee, cocoa, and banana plantations during the "cocoa boom." The courtyard of a restored hacienda serves a stage where costumed characters play out the 19th-century routines of daily life. Taste some of the traditional dishes at an old-fashioned bakery.

  • The place is on the other side of the city centre, in the canton Samborondón. It was financed by the Central Bank and opened in October 1999. There are eight hectares divided into three zones: the architectural area, the area of traditions and wildlife area. Accessed from Wednesday to Sunday from 9 am to 16:30.

  • This Metropolitan Park surprised me pleasantly. Did not know him, really is very useful for the visitor know/understand/value the natural beauty that surrounds Guayaquil and the most important pieces of its history. I went through the Park one Sunday and the spectacle of people appropriating public space seemed fabulous. Both the area of the mangrove as it of the forest rainy are very well implemented and the fauna that one can appreciate is is in very good state... and, say, in appearance it passes well, much better that in those zoos that dan so much penalty. Enter to Guayaquil for the Park has no loses. That was what I did. I traveled from span to span, visited the houses of the old city have been getting at the real image and then took the boat that takes visitors to the port on the Boardwalk of Guayaquil. Very nice ride. Guayaquil Historical Park is a part of the city that everyone should know. Take it, spend the day whole enter their trees and spaces for relaxation has no loses.

  • As all Guayaquil, I went more than once to Park historical, not that I like if not why is the site tourist that you must bring a guest who doesn't know our city, as well as learn more about our culture and history as a society. recently went with relatives who came from another Scandinavian country to visit us and not I had given has the entertaining thing is and how nice that is strolling through the Park one normal day which is very lonely and can be seen more beautiful rescued animals, as well as read with much more closely their informative primers. I recommend this place in the non-conventional days, like Tuesday or Wednesday to media later, so that with their relatives in other countries, or friends know a little more about our culture GUAYACAN XD.
