Get to know Guayaquil (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Guayaquil.

Guayaquil, the largest city in Ecuador, comprises a mix of the people and traditions that make this country. It is a city port, with a large and entertaining "Malecon," a beautifully made walkway by the water that gets incredibly busy, especially during weekends, with families, young people, and kids playing around. Streets vendors are all over, selling anything from chewing gum to balloons or flowers. During the warmer season, the city gets extremely hot and walking around outdoors can be tiring for the faint-hearted.


One of the most typical things to do while in Guayaquil is a boat ride through the river Guayas, a water channel that extends massively. Apart from this, there are plenty of entertaining things to do while in the city -- including decent cultural offerings, shopping options, nightlife, and happening streets full of outdoorsy and outgoing people.

It is almost impossible not to come across ceviche while in Guayaquil; this typical dish, common all across the coastal region of Ecuador and some other Latin American countries, is made of raw fish marinated in citrus juices, served with popcorn and plantain chips. Enjoy the intense flavors!

Hostels in Guayaquil, especially in the city centre, are plentiful; it shouldn't be a problem at all finding accommodation according to your budget. Do keep an eye when going out at night, as the city can get dangerous in less busy areas. Robbery and some cases of violent assault have been reported against tourists or locals, but you will be fine as long as you use some general common sense. Don't let it stop you from enjoying this happening city!
