20 yrs has taken for this city to transform from a connection hub to a tourist spot. Well worth exploring Guayaquil on your next adventure. Summertime can be grueling hot best weather is July to Nov. Food is amazing if in a restaurant or a food cart. My favorite dish Arroz con menestra y carne asada nothing more than rice lentils and bbq beef but the flavor is out of this world

Guayaquil is the largest city in Ecuador and definitely feels that way. It can often be a passing through point due to its hub status.

Wasn't in the city for long, just passing through on my way down to the beach and back up into the mountains.

While Quito is the capital of Ecuador, Guayaquil is Ecuador's largest city, and it's financial capital. Also, unlike landlocked Quito, Guayaquil is a seaport town.
