Setting sail from Guayaquil

Guayaquil is Ecuador's largest city and most important commercial centre, and acts as the gateway to the Pacific coast and the wildlife haven of the Galapagos Islands. It's a busy, buzzing sort of place, centred around the pleasant riverfront Malecón promenade, where you'll find some great restaurants and the impressive Museum of Anthropology and Contemporary Art. The historic district of La Peña is home to pretty, brightly coloured colonial architecture, and the city also has some nice parks and green spaces, so there is enough to warrant spending a day or two here before or after a Galapagos cruise.

Don't miss

In our opinion this city is fine, but there is really nothing unmissable here. Don’t miss flying away from here to visit the Galapagos!

Arriving in Valparaíso

Characterful, colourful and a little chaotic, the port city of Valparaíso enjoys a somewhat awkward setting, scattered across 45 vertiginous hills. Thanks to this difficult topography the city streets are punctuated by steep staircases and funicular elevators, and energetic explorers will be rewarded with wonderful views of the pastel hued buildings that hug the slopes. Valparaíso's most famous former resident was the great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, and you can visit one of his former residences, La Sebastiana, which now houses a small museum.

Our tip

Amble through the city, taking the really cheap cable cars when you can to help you up and down the hills!
