(4.5/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • This is a beautiful park with lush vegetation, recreates the Ecuadorian rural life with the exploitation of cocoa and the presence of different animals. Very humid and conducive environment for the existence of mosquitoes. Convenient carry repellent. Beautiful photos can be taken off. Free entrance.

  • I went ride at this park that is excellently well care and maintained, while admission is free. It surprised us pleasantly to walk its streets, visit the old houses completely restored and upgraded furnishings of the era. Vegetation and animals that remain are well-kept and have appropriate spaces. Within the park there are a couple of places to eat something to step and artisanal ice cream delicious refreshment pleasant walk to a quiet morning

  • 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.
