Starting from the pier you will drive through the center of Guayaquil as you get acquainted with this city during a short panoramic tour. You will pass by the most interesting sights of this huge city. Afterwards you will cross the river and arrive at the interesting Historical Park of Guayaquil. The Parque Histórico Guayaquil is a project of the Central Bank of Ecuador, an attempt to recapture our culture for our children. This Park is an invitation to discover our profound sense of identity.

Once inside the park, meander over wooden boardwalk trails and find yourself transported to a world where past becomes present. In one beautiful journey, you will see before your very eyes the species that used to populate the ancient province of Guayas, from deer to tapirs, monkeys to wild cats. You will discover an amazing world, and at the same time discover that nature is an essential part of our lives and not just something to admire from afar.

You will then find yourself in a late nineteenth century suburb. The streets and houses bring you a little closer to our recent past and let you enjoy the experience.

Finally, walk through a reproduction of the local countryside to a hacienda of the day, with its buildings, traditions and its wealth. You will discover the way in which the work is done in the hacienda and discover this unknown side of coastal life, a side which has remained virtually unchanged since the colonial era.

Return to the pier.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
