    Guayaquil

    July 7, 2019 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We got off the boat around 9am and were all transferred to the airport by bus. We were on the 1.5 hour, 11:30a flight to Guayaquil which went smoothly. The remainder of our vacation was spent at the Hotel Del Parque - same as the hotel we stayed at the first night. The surrounding area is a park that includes coffee trees, cocoa trees, a boardwalk through an area with lots of different animals, lots of Ecuadorian people and various food stalls. We got some ice cream and an empanada for a late afternoon snack, both of which were excellent. Afterwards, we took a 4pm guided tour of the park and then went to get dinner at around 5:30. The sit down restaurants in the park are pricey with strange (i.e. not kids friendly) food, so we walked to a food court we had heard about. We ended up walking way too far to get there since we missed a turn, but once we made it, it was a cute outdoor food court in a courtyard with lots of food options.
    Now it's 7pm and time for bed! Our wake up call is set for 2am!!😫
