Santa Ana Port is an interesting place- up the hill you have the very old and original houses, in multiple colours, of Guayaquil, it's Guayaquil's cradle, next you have very high buildings, very modern with a lot of glass and interesting architecture. The view is splendid. It's worth a promenade.

This one of the newest areas in Guayaquil. It is very clean and safe for a nice stroll, to enjoy the views of the river, and the old town of the city. From here you can have a nice walk all the way to Malecon 2000, and other attractions in the city center.

Not really a 'destination' just a necessary evil having to submit to the brown, dirty river, noisy boats, soot and smog. NOT a place I'd take a boat since that would put my health at risk.
