Guayaquil

4.3

Pearl of the Pacific

Hills dotted with colorful houses and waterfront promenades typify Guayaquil, Ecuador's largest city and commercial center. Founded by Spanish colonialists on the site of a preexisting indigenous settlement, the city of nearly 2.7 million people serves as Ecuador's heart in every sense except the political one. A blend of skyscrapers, traditional buildings, and hillside shantytowns reflects the area's diverse mix of inhabitants and make for rewarding tours of Guayaquil. Recent restoration efforts and the development of a thriving arts scene have helped Guayaquil tourism continue to grow. Guayaquil is in Guayas Province.
