Malecon 2000, Guayaquil

4.5
A model of urban regeneration, Malecon 2000 provides a wide range of attractions and entertainment options along the Guayas River. Once little more than a pathway, the boardwalk fell into disrepair in the 20th century before its re-inauguration as a public space in 1999. Wander along the 2.5 km (1.5 mi) waterfront packed with monuments, historical buildings, gardens, museums, and more. Afterwards, kick back with a drink or a bite to eat at one of the many food courts, bars, and cafes scattered along its length, or simply find a comfortable green space and people-watch.

  • So much to see and do. With the family or all alone. There are parks, views of the river, restaurants, amusement parks, and it's free to walk along. Also some pretty good bird watching.
  • This water front by a wide Estuary has lots of great scenery, boat rides (not as long as they promise), Ferris wheel, and interesting architecture. There is a long boardwalk along the water front.
