Buy tickets for a 1 hour cruise in the harbor for 7 dollars. It's a nice cruise with bar and restaurant onboard, but not guided. For a guided cruise I recommend the motorboats further north on Malecon 2000 (close to La Perla), 3 dollars for...More

I went with a few friends for a couple of hours in the evening. Great view of the Guayas River and of the City of Guayaquil. Not expensive and something different to do for a few hours. Music, drinks and small appetizers. Leaves right off...More
