Explore the authentic bohemian neighborhood of Guapulo. Take a walk down a winding road to the old neighborhood church, which was the original route Francisco de Orellana took to the Amazon River during the beginning of his explorations. The rustic vibe of the neighborhood leaves an impression, and you can find quite a lot happening during the evening hours. Listen to some local bands, dine on local fast food, and take in the urban sights and sounds.

  • I have visited this place since I can remember, its colonial-style church is beautiful, it transmits spirituality everywhere and art in every corner of this very well preserved, and its small museum shows most of this art of time, also the view while we headed to Guápulo is very beautiful especially in sunny days, preferred.

  • All Spanish. Not the best interpretation, but the center area is nice (although I was there in dry season and it wasn't well landscaped).  more »
