Its set of lights and outdoors activities at night make it an important part of the guayaquilean nightlife.
The illuminated guitar.
One of the unmissable monuments of your visit to Guayaquil is the square named Plaza de la Música which was interestingly built in the shape of a guitar and located in the second section of the Malecón del Salado promenade. Its special feature is its lighting, which is why it is recommended that you go on a peaceful evening stroll here in order to enjoy the outdoors activities and street concerts that take place in this square. You can relax with a nice dinner in the open-air bars and also enjoy its pergolas and lighted fountains. Although it is also a pleasant spot by day, that is nothing compared to the effects of the lights on the water. This area forms part of a renovation project that aims to improve the river banks in order to prevent the disrepair of the adjacent houses. Therefore, not only the square but the whole "guitar shape" will be continued with this new expansion that has currently become one of the urban development reference points of Guayaquil.
