It is a beautiful place that shows us the culture of a city, however I found it annoying that there are so many sellers not only trying to offer a product but insisting in a harassing way and security is only conspicuous by its absence

It is a nice place to take a walk near the river. It is very lively on weekends and many places to see and things to do for the whole family.

Really cool boardwalk along the river. Went Friday night and didn’t see the draw. Saturday day it was packed. There is a mall, a few restaurants and some vendors. Great spot to walk and people watch.

The Malecon 2000 was recommended by our driver and we needed to stretch our legs, so we began walking. It is clearly an attempt to update the city and it really worked to some degree. The walk incorporated new, old, and had something for both the young and the old. It was showing signs of its age, but the entertainers, crowds and people made up for its overdue update.

We went to the park to see the iguanas and then spent several hours strolling up and down the Malecon 2000. It was a good experience on a warm evening. Many people around

If you want to relax and admire the Guayas River, the Malecon 2000 is the ideal place, you can enjoy a pleasant walk along the site, have fun in the various activities offered such as the boat ride along the river, get on the Pearl and enjoy the games that are around it. The Malecon 2000 is the perfect place to escape from the stress of everyday life.

It such a good place to vistit. Very safe. You can spend time with your family watching the events on weekends, or going to the Fragata, to set sail on the Guayas river, or going to Santai island, to see the animals in there.
