Founded in 1535, Guayaquil is Ecuador’s largest city and a useful stopping-off point for the Galapagos Islands. It has some good modern hotels, a colonial centre and vibrant waterfront area, the Malecon. Further up the coast is the Machalilla National Park offering good beaches, seabirds and, from May to September, humpback whale sightings.
