Cuenca, Ecuador – Guayaquil: A Quick Post
Guayaquil, Ecuador was originally only a quick stop for us, but Anner got sick there, so it ended up being a bit longer than we expected (3 days instead of only overnight). Thus, this quick post is all me! It was kind of a 2-part visit: fly-in day where we both went out to the Iguana Park and walked along the Malecon (the sea wall) and then a couple of days where I walked around our lodging neighborhood near the airport while Anner rested. Both had their highlights, so here’s some photos!
I really liked Guayaquil for the short time we were there – the people were incredibly friendly (like the two different shop owners who literally closed their shops so they could guide us places when we asked location questions!), the heat was dry so we weren’t soaked through like in Costa Rica and Panama. Do stop by if you’re ever in Ecuador!
PS – If you’re overnighting in Guayaquil, as many folks do on their way to Cuenca or other stops in Ecuador, I can’t recommend enough the AirB&B lodgings we had! David and his family were truly wonderful hosts.
