Guayaquail old city – Ecuador


The old district “Las Peñas”

is the only part of the city where the wooden houses were not destroyed by fire

and you can get an impression of the old, picturesque colonial Guayaquil.

Guayaquil is the capital city of Ecuador, its major port and has a very modern 2.5 km boardwalk with malls and restaurants, bars, food courts, the first IMAX theater in South America called ‘Malecon 2000.”

I recall shopping feverishly for pirated DVDs there.
