Guayaquil City Tour & Parque Historico

Guayaquil, the gateway to the Galapagos, has been transformed over recent years with its newly restored historic district characterised by centuries-old houses and narrow lanes. Las Peñas is the city’s oldest district, and once you’ve navigated its colourful streets you’ll be guided up 444 steps to the summit of Cerro Santa Ana for panoramic vistas of the city. As well as this Guayaquil cradles a string of excellent museums, a stately cathedral, Iguana Park (named after the resident creatures here) and the modern Malecon 2000 which hugs the Guayas River and is home to the towering Moorish Clock Tower, botanical gardens and Chamber of the Rotunda. This monument marks the historic meeting between Simon Bolivar and Jose de San Martin in the 19th century, reflecting a huge turning point in the history of the country. Sprawled over eight hectares and flanked by the Babahoyo and Daule Rivers, the Guayaquil Historical Park is a fascinating window into the wildlife, architecture and history of Ecuador. It was established by the Central Bank to preserve the culture and customs of Guayaquil and the coast, and is divided into three distinct sections. The Wildlife Zone is home to more than 50 species of bird, mammals, reptiles, plants and insects, reflecting the four different ecosystems of Ecuador: mangrove forest, flooded plains, tropical dry forest and drizzle forest. Then there’s the Urban Architecture Zone, with restored and reconstructed buildings from the turn of the century.


“I found Surtrek online as it proved to be an excellent, efficient company. Our 4 days in the Galapagos were expertly planned and we were never left without a guide - we were even walked to dinner each night and assisted with ordering!”Marian Lowenfish
