History and culture of the old Guayaquil mixed with diverse vegetation and wildlife


You'll take a look at the history and culture of the old Guayaquil city that emerged at the end of the colonial times and the beginning of the republican life of the country between the XIX and XX centuries.
This wonderful site recreates the architecture, traditions and the urban and rural life of the Guayaquil of those times, mixed with a beautiful natural park full of a diverse vegetation.
You can appreciate the history of Guayaquil in three defined areas:
Wildlife Area: four hectares recreates the natural habitat of more than 50 species between birds, mammals and other animals some of which are in danger of extinction
Urban Architectonic Area: this 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.
