Historic Park

(3 hours / Wednesday to Sunday)

The Central Bank of Ecuador built it in 1997 on the banks of the Guayas River as a theme park of 8 hectares with educational, cultural, environmental, recreational and tourist purposes.  It is divided in 3 sections:

1) Wildlife Area: it comprises approximately four hectares and recreates the natural habitat of more than 50 species between birds, mammals and other animals that turned the woods into their natural habitat, some of which are in danger of extinction.

2) Urban Architectonic Area: the space recreates the wealthy times of Guayaquil of the first decades of the XX century, when the city enjoyed an economic boom thanks to the growth and exportation of cocoa, which brought prosperity to the city and the surrounding farms.

3) Traditional Area: the space of two hectares is a place of reminiscence in which the visitor can learn about the history of urban Guayaquil, besides the observation of the rural life of our countryside.
