Walking along this well lit, well maintained, and popular pedestrian promenade is safe and scenic. On our visit, we also happened upon a couple musical concerts in the evening that makes for a even more interesting and fun stroll.

Malecón 2000, a long park and promenade beside the Rio Guayas, is the recently developed posterchild of the "New Guayaquil," a urban center long known more for its gritty side than the tourist attraction it's trying slowly to become. It has a multitude of shops, restaurants, gardens, even an IMAX theater, and offers beautiful views of both the river and downtown.

Once a seedy port in a seedy port town, the revitalization of Guayaquil's waterfront has transformed the city's downtown. The Malecón 2000 is a beautiful place to walk along the water, see the sights and do a little shopping. It provides a great point of reference for navigating around the city and really Guayaquil would not be as pleasant as it's become in recent years without this feature!
