#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in Guayaquil
Get a glimpse into how the city looked a century ago at Guayaquil Historical Park, where you can also get to know local traditions, rural customs, and native wildlife. Stroll along elevated pathways through banana plants, a dry tropical forest, and mangrove trees, and observe birds, reptiles, and other animals in their natural habitat. See old farming tools and learn about the life of farmers who worked the rice fields, coffee, cocoa, and banana plantations during the "cocoa boom." The courtyard of a restored hacienda serves a stage where costumed characters play out the 19th-century routines of daily life. Taste some of the traditional dishes at an old-fashioned bakery.

  • Beautiful place to get to know the fauna, flora and culture of Ecuador. The best thing is that it is a totally free attraction, an example to follow in other places.

  • It's surprise to take care of this park. It is an excellent choice for a walk or to get to know some Ecuadorian species. The historical area is not too special.
