Brought me back memories of Santa Teresa (Rio de Janeiro) or old San Juan (PR). It's a very colonial, hipster type of place (with a couple of "Irish" pubs and karaoke bars).

My husband and I went to Las Penas around 11:00 AM to start the walk up the 444 stairs as we wanted to beat the heat. As you walk up the 444 stairs you are surrounded by bright colored homes, stores, bars and places to eat. We were there as places were just starting to open up. Highly recommend you... More

Safe by night and day (lots of security everywhere). A lot of bars and restaurants with ok prices considering surrounding areas. Nice view on the city plus relax vibe makes it a must visit.

Our guide took us to this area and explained how part of it had been revised. Guayaquil has some great ideas to clean up their city and make it beautiful. This was one of them.

Great to experience the History of the city, it has so much to offer the visitor. Ecuador's History dates back before the arrival of the Spanish in 1526, this was my first visit to Ecuador and I fell in love with the country and its people.
