Tourism in Guayaquil

Guayaquil is a seaport, and its character is heavily influenced by this fact. In addition, the weather is hot and humid. These two characteristics contribute to the city’s ‘Caribbean’ essence, where outsiders are typically pleasantly accepted, tropical music reigns supreme, and seafood is a must-do. An ancient tourist guide previously listed Guayaquil’s attractions as one: “The Public Cemetery.” Not any more; the city has experienced significant transformation in the previous ten years as a consequence of significant efforts made by municipal administration. Now, wonderful parks and green places can be found all throughout the city (for example, Peas and the Malecon), and the city has a fresh appearance that draws tourists from inside and beyond the nation.

Climate of Guayaquil

Guayaquil’s climate is tropical savanna (Köppen: Aw). Between January and April, the temperature is hot and humid, with high rainfall, particularly during El Nio years, when rainfall rises considerably and floods is common. Rainfall is negligible the remainder of the year (from May to December) owing to the cooling impact of the Humboldt Current, with gloomy mornings and afternoon and evening breezes. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Guayaquil and the rest of the coastal area on April 16, 2016 had an effect on the city.

Geography of Guayaquil

Guayaquil is the biggest city in Ecuador and the seat of Guayas Province. It is located near the Equator on the Guayas River, approximately 60 kilometers (40 miles) north of the Gulf of Guayaquil.

Economy of Guayaquil

The major sources of income for Guayaquileans include official and informal commerce, business, agriculture, and aquaculture. The majority of trade is comprised of small and medium-sized firms, adding a substantial informal sector vocation that employs thousands of Guayaquileos.

The Port of Guayaquil is the nation’s most significant commercial port; most import and export cargo enters and exits the country through the Gulf of Guayaquil. It is also vital to note that it is the country’s biggest metropolis, and the majority of industry are concentrated in the city or its surrounding regions.

Ongoing initiatives aim urban renewal as a primary goal for the expansion of the city’s commercial areas, since capital increases provide revenue. These initiatives in the city, spearheaded by the city’s most recent mayors, have accomplished this aim after substantial quantities of money have been invested. Guayaquil’s current municipal government wants to make the city a destination for world-class international tourist and business corporations.

Internet, Communication in Guayaquil

There are internet cafés in the area where you may contact with faraway friends and family. These often include phone booths for making VoIP phone calls. In addition to free entertainment, certain malls (Mall del Sol, Riocentro Los Ceibos) provide free Wi-Fi in their food courts. Buy $30 in groceries at Mi Comisariato and get a two-for-one movie ticket. As of January 3, 2007, a single weekday ticket costs $2.80.
