pena bamboo???

by selma146

Re: pena bamboo???

by hawkhead

I think the poster knows she/he is going to Ecuador and perhaps even to Guayaquil - what they don't know is where Pena Bamboo is. I assumed it was is the name of a nightclub or the like, so I googled "oena bamboo quayaquil location" and came up with several links and an address. So you could see where it is through Google Earth and also through something like mappy.com. On the other hand, as I've been typing, i've been reading the original question and it seems as though, because the text of the question asks for pointers of places to go, the poster doesn't know exactly where Guayaquil is. Possibly. Rather ambiguous.

Since your VT page doesn't even tell us where you are from, how can we make suggestions about what you might like to do or see in Quayaquil?

It was very hot and humid when we were there.

Unfortunately available in Spanish only, a good place to see more beautiful pictures of places to go, things to do and stories from old times, is one of the local newspapers website. Anyway, the pictures are worth trying, don't miss the giant iguana sculpture


Packing List

by DanielR

Guayaquil is hot and not the same of the highlands. You must wear tropical clothes and sometimes you even must use sun block (Copertone). Comfortable shoes, sunglasses, hut if you want and of course in a city tour your camera. They are a lot of big surprises around…
Don’t use gold things because they are not necessary and also have a map with you always. The maps you can get at your hotel of at the Tourist Information for free. But, if you find it at some corner, get it…

Horseback Riding at "Finca La Gloria"

by namastedc

About 40 minutes outside the city, on the Via a la Costa, is Finca Gloria. On certain days it is possible to go on long horseback riding trips through the surrounding villages - an incredible way to see the Ecuadorian plains.

If you stay the night in one of their cabins, you can take a midnight treck on horseback, crossing rivers and streams so deep you must lift your legs, to a village where you tie up your horses and enjoy some Ecuadorian beer.

Call to make sure that this service is going on when you visit.

El Cerro Sanata Ana/ Santa Ana Hill

by malianrob

Here you will find the 440 stairs to climb to the top. Once at the top you will enjoy the beautiful views of the city. All this area has been remodeled so it looks nice, where once it might have been more of a shanty town. Now the houses are painted beautiful colors and they look so appealling. It has somewhat of a colonial feel to it. On our way up we stopped a few times because it was so hot and humid that I really felt like I was getting a work out. Not only that but I had to carry Koa and I was sunburned.
There are little stores along the way up where you can buy water or soda and there are clean public bathrooms.
The stairs are also numbered so you can know how many more you have to go.

Santiago de Guayaquil - Up River

by grandmaR

Guayaquil is the largest and the most populous city in Ecuador. In 1600 Guayaquil had a population of about 2,000 people; by 1700 the city had a population of over 10,000. According to the most recent census (2001), its population was 1.985.379.

In spite of being a long way up the river from the Pacific Ocean is the nation's main port. Guayaquil is on the west margin of the Guayas River, which flows into the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Guayaquil. The climate is hot and generally humid.

Guayaquil has a cathedral and many other Roman Catholic churches. There is a Temple and many chapels of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many other faiths and religions are represented throughout the city.

Guayaquil was founded on July 25, 1538 with the name Muy Noble y Muy Ciudad de Santiago de Guayaquil by Spanish Conquistador Francisco de Orellana. Even before it was founded by the Spanish, it already existed as a native village. The city suffered from a major fire in 1896 which destroyed large portions of the city. It has also suffered a number of earthquakes in the last century which resulted in the destruction of the colonial architecture in the city. The most recent earthquake was a 5.6 magnitude earthquake on Aug. 18, 1980
