Iguanas around the cathedral
It may not be the first attraction that comes to mind, but a visit to the Guayaquil cemetery with its impressive graves and mausoleums makes for a fascinating outing. Also admire the golden altars of the La Merced and San Francisco churches. And be sure to visit the Catedral Metropolitana de Guayaquil. It is located by Seminario Park and home to some giant tame iguanas. Don’t let them scare you! Guayaquil is not only perfect for a city trip but also makes a great starting point for a longer holiday in Ecuador. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Guayaquil now!
Art and Panama hats
Fans of local art will love the colonial collection on display at the Museo Nahim Isaías. Another popular museum is the Museo Antropológico y de Arte Contemporáneo. As an added bonus, this museum also hosts archaeological and astrological exhibits. To shop for local arts and crafts, visit the market stands in the covered Mercado Sur market. El Mercado Artesanal is the place to purchase an original Panama hat. Guayaquil is much more than the perfect starting point for a visit to the Galápagos Islands.
