Your Travel Experience with Galapagos PRO
Guayaquil city walking tour with cable car
Discover Guayaquil's center and its architecture on foot and by cable car. The city tour starts in the beautiful artists' quarter Las Peñas with its neo-colonialist style houses preserved in their original state. After climbing to the lighthouse on Santa Ana hill, enjoy the view over the Guayas River, the mangrove forests of the river delta and the port metropolis stretching to the horizon. Via the river promenade Malecón 2000 you reach the pulsating shopping mile 9 de Octubre, which forms the traffic artery between the two rivers Guayas and Estero Salado. At Parque Centenario, board Guayaquil's cable car, opened in 2021, which connects the city center with the adjacent town of Durán and is used as a public transportation system. During your ride over the Guayas, you can observe the architecture and the hustle and bustle of the city, which is hectic in some corners, in a relaxed way from above. Finally, you will visit the Cathedral Metropolitana and the Parque Seminario, known beyond the city limits as the Iguana Park, which offers the best opportunity in continental Ecuador to observe and photograph iguanas up close. In the oldest café of the city, the Dulceria La Palma, you let the tour end comfortably.
