The port city of Guayaquil may be the center of commerce and manufacturing in Ecuador, but the neighborhoods surrounding our Guayaquil hotels will testify to the city’s success as a tourist destination, as well.
Visit the Malecón 2000, a 1.5-mile boardwalk alongside the Guayas River, featuring shops, restaurants, playgrounds, guided riverboat tours, and South America’s first IMAX theater. For those seeking some local flavor, our Guayaquil accommodations are minutes away from the Las Peñas barrio––home to the city’s booming artistic community––and the Mercado Artesanal artisans’ market, which is home to more than 200 local merchants and stretches across an entire city block.
Tourists and locals alike flock to Parque Seminario, nicknamed Iguana Park for the abundance of iguanas found on its lawns, while those looking for a break from the Guayaquil sun will enjoy Parque Centenario: four blocks of sculpted walkways shaded by trees. The local restaurateurs are known for their rice with lentils and grilled beef, but Italian, Mediterranean and Asian cuisines are also well represented. If you’re looking for an authentic South American experience with the comforts of home, our hotels in Guayaquil will get you on your way.
