The Faro Santa Ana sits atop the Santa Ana hills, in the Las Peñas neighborhood. To get there, you have to climb 444 steps (exactly 444, each step is marked), through narrow streets and past charming colonial homes. The view of Guayaquil from the top of the lighthouse is said to be fantastic but sadly it was closed when I ...Popular withBackpackers

Imagine the surprise, you're walking through the heavily urbanized downtown district of Guayaquil and relieved to see the greenery of a small city park, when suddenly you notice it is swarming with giant lizards! For me, this was one of those rare occasions when I was glad I didn't know about this place in advance because it was such a ...Popular withFamilies

From Guayaquil, Ecuador to Lima, Peru. Duration: 25 hrs. Price: $70.00. The bus leaves Guayaquil daily at 11:00. Fairly comfortable ride in semi-cama seats, with a hot meal about 7 hours into the trip in Máncora (bus actually stopped at a restaurant in Máncora to pick up our meals), which was a nice bonus as I was later to find ...
