  Ceibo Tree in Cerro Blanco Park
by namastedc

Just 5 minutes outside the city, on the Via a la Costa, is Cerro Blanco. The park is a privately run (by an NGO) outfit.

For just a few dollars, you will have a guided tour through any of three trails - chosen according to how much time you want to be out there. The park is lush, steamy, and very green. There are countless birds - some that only exist in Guayaquil - and oftentimes monkeys and lizards.

Bring your bug spray - this is the buggiest park on the planet!! Also, tip your guides well - they are working very hard for the money, and most are students (and what student couldn't use the money?)
