Cheap Flights to Guayaquil

Guayaquil overview

The exotic, historic and nature-oriented city of Guayaquil offers visitors a great choice of things to do including exciting places to eat, nightlife, beaches, surf sites and resorts as well as cultural activities. An unmissable addition to the tour itinerary, located in the middle of the Guayas river, is the home of 40 fisher families living according to relatively ancient customs. Whale watching is another popular activity in the area, and visitors can opt for a day tour in Salinas. Free city tours are offered in the city centre by experienced guides. Malecon 2000 is a 1.5 mile (2.5 km) promenade that visitors can enjoy exploring. This area is complemented by many restaurants, museums, playgrounds and a shopping mall.

Las Peñas on the Cerro Santa Ana is the area where Guayaquil was founded, making this the oldest part of the city. It is dotted with souvenir shops, galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants as well as residential homes. The Cerro Blanco national reserve offers more than 6000 acres, sea cliffs and indigenous plants and animals to be enjoyed by nature-loving visitors. The gorgeous Santa Ana hill, cathedral and Iguana Park, San Francisco Church, Centenario Park, and the Guayaquil City Museum are all well worth a visit. Taking a boat trip on the Henry Morgan pirate ship is a nice day trip while in this fishing port.

When to fly to Guayaquil

This region has a dry and hot, tropical climate, and two defined seasons. The dry season in the region runs from May to December, and this is also the foggy time of the year, so not the best for water activities and views. The wet season runs from January to April and this is also the sunny season. The rain in the area can occasionally be very heavy. July to January are the most temperate months in the city.

Since the dry season can also be very foggy, this is sometimes a quieter time in the city. Late spring, summer and early autumn are often very busy times to visit Guayaquil. Once the rainy season begins, tourism quiets down and this is when cheaper rates on hotels and airfares can be found. The Christmas season is a busy time in the region so if you don't enjoy crowds, it is best to avoid it during the festive holiday. Prices are likely to be much higher during this time.
