Parque Historico Guayaquil, Guayaquil
(4.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I think it's always interesting to know the historic park of the cities you are visiting!! Culture does not occupy space!!

  • This place was great and FREE! The staff and great, they even put our bags in the office to keep them safe. Did I mention that some of them speak English. The zoo part was the best. The animals are not confined to cages. You have to stay on the path but the birds are usually close enough for you to get a close look.
  • Very interesting place in guayaqiul that's a cross between museum botanical garden and zoo. Fun to explore on your own and keep getting surprised.
  • Lindo lugar, nunca me canso de visitarlo.
  • A place you cannot miss in Guayaquil. Very beautiful
  • Really relaxed atmosphere and an all round great day out.
