Guayaquil and its fountain lights
The journey begins visiting the Parque Centenario devoted to the independence and freedom of the old city from the Spanish colonization. It continues to visit the famous and historic Barrio Las Peñas; the original and only surviving colonial district of the city with more than 400 years of existence. Visitors will through narrow streets and colorful houses going up 444 steps headed to the top of the Santa Ana Hill between bars and restaurants. Once it the top, there will be fantastic panoramic views of the city and the Guayas River.
We continue with a visit to Malecon del Salado which is a pier surrounded by natural areas where water sports are practice and its surroundings of mangroves and green areas resemble a natural park. There is a construction of two stories, where one resembles the sails of a ship with a suspended bridge of about 55 meters long. The second story is made out of fountains, resting places, squares, monuments, artisans’ kiosks, fast food places, bars, and restaurants. By sunset, there will be a spectacular show of the Monumental Fountain of Dancing Waters which is an interaction between water jets “dancing” by the rhythm of classical to modern local music. It is a colorful and interesting show, with great visual effects!
