Naranjal Information

by wallawallapat

Hi - I will be in the Naranjal area the month of November - has any member been there and can you offer some tips on transportation, things to do, safety or anything else of interest? I'm not going to be in Guayaquil more than a day but see there's plenty to do there. I am looking forward to the smaller area of Naranjal. Thank you for your help! WWPat

Re: Naranjal Information

I'm sorry I havent read this post earlier. I live in Guayaquil, and from my experience, there's not to much to do in Naranjal. It's a small town where Agriculture and small commerce is its main activities. No big attractions, malls, or entertainment centers. You could take advantage of side trips, to enjoy natural landscape of coast Ecuador ( Salinas, Playas, Guayaquil, Manta..etc.)Hope this helps.

Thank you for this answer - it is my daughter who is in Ecuador and she is working for a macaw captive breeding program. She's returning this weekend to the US but has absolutely loved her month in the remote area south of Naranjal. She did travel in to Cuenca and had a good weekend being a tourist.
Thank you again. pat

Travel Tips for Guayaquil

Semenario Park

by grandmaR

I did not get out to take pictures of this park, but it looked like an interesting place for children to run around and harass the iguanas. There is also a small pond of multicolored Tilapias, statues (photo 3) and greenery.

Translating the sign on the gate (photo 4):

Rice fields

by malianrob

My uncle land cousins live in the Sanborondon neighborhood right outside of Guayaquil. There are many rice fields in this area. I didnt know what they were, I just thought they were vacant fields until my cousin told me what they were.
I still dont know where the rice is??? under the ground?

Another green spot!

by Strannik

When you move, there is a big challenge on finding out what are surroundings like! Well, fortunately I found another green spot, perfect to walk, jog, play badmington and even try some iguana-watching, though these fellows seem less friendly than their peers at the famous park. Aaaaah, and at the bottom there is this kindergarden which uses the park to let children run and perform some interesting plays (free of charge for walkers)

Alamos park is another refreshing green spot in the middle of all that building-jungle

Barrio Las Penas

by malianrob

This nieghborhood was renovaded rather than demolished. On many of the little houses here that have been fixed up you will be about to see a picture of what they used to look like before. The difference is incredible. It actually looks like a very nice neighborhood now,

Guayaquil is known as the Pearl of the Pacific. Guayaquil is on the west margin of the Guayas River, which flows into the Gulf of Guayaquil in the Pacific Ocean. Guayaquil is located about 250 km south-southwest of the capital of Ecuador, Quito. It is the main port in the country as well as the most populated city (According to the most recent census (2001), its population was 1,985,379)


La Rotonda, right on 9 de Octubre Avenue, which reminds the viewer of the encounter between the liberators San Martin and Simon Bolivar in 1822. This monument is suitably bathed in spotlights at night and is very impressionable to the eye. Bolivar was the infamous Venezuelan liberator who brought freedom to Bolivia, Colombia and Ecuador including his own country from the Spanish colonialists while San Martin was the Argentinean equivalent freeing Peru and Chile also from these ex- Spanish rulers.

"MALECON 2000"

Malecon 2000 is the jewel in the crown of Guayaquil which is solely for pedestrians. This waterfront is home to hundreds of cafes, bars, monuments and a string of shops including a shopping mall. Taking a walk through the Guayas river banks is an excellent recreational alternative for every single traveler. The restored and modern Malec?n, North to South, offers the tourists a variety of attractions. The walk through the renovated Pier is also a pleasant experience for all ages.
