Parque Histórico de Guayaquil (Guayaquil Historic Park)
A theme park divided into three areas that will transport you to the golden era of Guayaquil.
Return to the past.
Nearly 20 acres of historic re-enactment on the banks of the river Duale invites you to take a trip through time and see how Guayaquil was in colonial times, within the context of a theme park. Proposed by Olaf Holm, Manager of the Anthropological Museum of the Central Bank of Ecuador in the 1980's, the construction of the park was not started until 1997 and continued until 2007. It is divided into three themed areas: Area of Traditions, with houses and cocoa plantations scattered around for a theatrical show; Wildlife area with a 1 kilometre wooden bridge, along which you are able to observe the indigenous plant and animal life. And finally, in the Urban Area you will find, amongst other features, what the buildings of Guayaquil were like at the beginning of the 20th century, some buildings are originals which have been reconstructed stone by stone and others are imitations, like original replicas of the buildings that were in the city.
