Hotels in Guayaquil

In Guayaquil, it is best to stay in the city center, close to sights such as El Malecon (the river embankment) and La Ronda. We recommend Wyndham there for its good location and good service. If you prefer a slightly smaller-scale hotel: the beautiful Iguanazu is just outside the city center. And at an hour and a half drive from Guayaquil you will find the fantastic hacienda La Danesa.

Hacienda La Danesa


Hacienda La Danesa used to be a large cattle farm. Now it combines this activity with running a luxury resort with top-level service. You can eat fresh cheese (made from milk from the farm), follow chocolate workshops (with cocoa from the hacienda) or roll up your sleeves to help milk the cows. The hacienda is an hour and a half drive from Guayaquil on the way to the Andes mountains, making it pleasantly warm. The estate has six guest rooms, all with air conditioning, bathroom, hairdryer, dressing gown and slippers. You can book in-room massages. There is also the possibility to cycle, walk, do tubing in the river etc. You can go horse riding, visit the nearby nature reserves, take cooking lessons etc. La Danesa is a good place to actively relax.

Explore Ecuador and Galapagos!


Indian woman from SalasacasIn South America, Ecuador is one of the smaller countries, but the country is hugely diverse in terms of geography, climate and population. You can visit the Andes, the Amazon rainforest as well as the tropical coast without taking extremely long domestic flights or transfers. And then you have the Galapagos Islands, a once in a lifetime experience. The diversity of flora and fauna per square mile is enormous. Ecuador is South America in a nutshell. Moreover, the country is relatively safe and little visited. The national currency is the USD and you have a wide choice of direct flights to Quito and Guayaquil from Europe and the United States.
