A city I've never heard of but it looks beautiful! Thanks for sharing, otherwise I'm not sure I'd ever run across this place.

looks like I've got a new place to go on my next trip to South America!! I've got a buddy from Peru that I am thinking of visiting, maybe I'll jet over there on the same trip :D

I lived in Guayaquil for almost two years (1996-1998). The people there are great and the city had potential (but always overshadowed by Quito). These were really bad times for Ecuador (Abdala Bucarem was president). I taught at ESPOL University right downtown where these pictures were taken and it looked nothing like this. The port was in sad shape: polluted water, open prostitution and child labor, and constant danger for those living and working there. However, I have heard good things from Guayacos about all the development. Wow - it has positively changed and the city needs to be congratulated! These are great photos and so poignant for me in that it changed so fast. It is worth a visit (spend some time in the city and then go to the Galapagos islands).

Siempre un mono :-)!
