Congratulations! You and your family have won an exclusive trip to Guayaquil. Guayaquil is the largest city in Ecuador. It is located on the west bank of the Guayas River, which flows into the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Guayaquil. The culture of Guayaquil is as vibrant and beautiful as the hand woven tapestries of the local artisans who live there. Stemming from its long and rich history, Guayaquil culture includes a fair mix of indigenous practices. Some of the most popular sightseeing locations for tourists include the Santay Island, a wild island habitat with a recreation area. As well as the Guayaquil Historical Park, which contains a small zoo and several historical homes to tour. Menestra or moros is one of the cities most desired dishes. It is made up of rice, beans, lentils, and your choice of meat. Menestra is a truly coastal, traditional, and popular Guayaquil. If you were to do only one thing in Guayaquil, our suggestion is to take a leisurely stroll along the Malecon 2000. This pleasant 2.5-kilometer riverfront promenade that not only takes in excellent views of the River of Guayas, but it winds its way through gardens, museums, monuments, restaurants, and shopping complexes. Another attraction to check out is La Perla, or "The Pearl" as it translates to in English. La Perla is the largest ferris wheel in South America. It soars 187 feet high above the city of Guayaquil, offering its riders an excellent view.
