One of the nicest areas of Guayaquil is El Malecon which is a 2.5 kilometer long stretch of pedestrian walking area down at the water at the central part of Guayaquil. The area is fenced and it is policed regularly which make it one of the safest areas of the city and a good place to go and walk and relax and enjoy the view of the water and the many small green areas.
When we walk along the water there are nice view of the river area and some hills in the distance. There are also some water birds living down at the water edge. It is always nice to see some herons and the like within an urban area. It gives the impression there is a fairly good water environment next to the city with some fish able to live next to the town.
Along the promenade there are some places with some statues and there is a historic train car and down at the water is an old sailing ship.
There are also several small green areas along the Malecon where there are some small lakes with a few duck enjoying the water. The small parks are looks very fertile helped by the tropical climate of the city. All in all we had a nice relaxing walk along the water side in the city.
