Guayaquil is Ecuador's biggest port, and also the country's biggest city. Malecon 2000, a tree lined waterfront complex, features gardens, playgrounds, restaurants, shops, fountains, a museum, photo and art galleries. Adjacent is the magnificent Club de la Union, Moorish clock tower, Government Palace and the imposing Palacio Municipal. The old district of Las Penas is a reminder of the old colonial city with narrow cobbled streets, brightly painted wooden houses and a 16th-century church. In Parque Centenario there is a monument which commemorates the Guayaquil Conference of 1822 between South American statesmen Jose de San Martín and Simón Bolívar.
The Ecological Reserve of Manglares Churute and Cerro Blanco Forest Reserve are situated outside the city, where visitors can take canoes into the mangroves to see wildlife. 19th century Guayaquil is recreated by Parque Historico. From there travelers can also visit the capital, Quito and Cuenca.
The Guayas province is named after the Puna Indian chief Guayas who fought bravely against the Incas and the Spanish. Guayaquil, the capital of the province, is named after the Chief, Guayas, and his wife, Quill, whom he's said to have killed before drowning himself, rather than letting her to be captured by Spanish conquistadors. Guayaquil was founded twice - in 1535 by Sebastian de Benalcazar and in 1537 by Francisco de Orellana.
