Guayaquil is not designed for tourism, the park opens from Wednesday to Sunday, if you find yourself in Gye on Monday or Tuesday don't expect to see anything there

Walk through the flore and fauna that make up Ecuador, and see firsthand the animals. Visit the historical buildings. They could charge admission to this park, but it is all free. It is really worth the time to visit.
