What you'll do

I am happy you join this experiencie, please write me a short message before you book it. My hometown Guayaquil is the “economical capital” of Ecuador and most populated city of the country. I will show you Guayaquil beyond the touristic places, how different social classes are distributed along the city, how we really live in the rich neighborhoods and the poor ones. At the end I will take you to my parents’ house in a very popular neighborhood. During December we can also see the traditional toys called "años viejos" we build to celebrate New Year's Eve.

Where you'll be

We will drive to the north and see the middle class neighborhoods until Plaza Lagos, a very exclusive commercial center located in the wealthy Samborondon (this area is outside Guayaquil). After this, we will finish the tour at my parents house in a very popular neighbordood drinking coffee and eating bolones (typical snack in the coast).
