Ideal for history buffs and sports enthusiasts: historical park, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and yoga!

We first visit the Historical Park to go back in time to the XIX Century and experience how was life in Guayaquil, going through the Wildlife section, the Urban Architectural area and the Traditional zone. This park, inaugurated in 1999 constitutes a great pride for the Guayaquileños as it portraits the life of the old days in the magnificent Guayaquil.

Time for lunch at a local restaurant near the Historical Park. Lunch is not included in the price of the tour, as people's food preferences may significantly vary. Instead I will give you recommendations on where to eat and try Ecuadorian or international food.

In the afternoon our water adventure begins! We will drive to a lagoon, which is part of a buffer zone of a protected area in the Tropical dry Forest of Guayaquil. Then we practice stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking on the lagoon, surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape. As you get more confident with the board, the practice of yoga poses and asanas will be possible as well.
