Guayaquil is a sea port, and its personality derives much from that fact. Also, the climate is very hot. These two factors give the city a 'Caribbean' soul, where foreigners are usually well received, tropical music rules and seafood is a must do. The city has undergone a great change in these last 10 years as a result of great efforts made by the city administrators. Now you can find great parks and green areas all over the city (for example Peñas and the Malecon), and the city has a new look which attracts tourism from inside and outside the country.

The new '''José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport''', elected as best South American Airport, is located near the city center and is next to the bus terminal.In this airport, you cand find daily flights to [[New York (city)|New York]], [[Miami]], [[Houston]], [[Madrid]], [[Amsterdam]], [[Lima]], etc. Taxis to a hotel in the northern suburbs shouldn't cost more than $3 and a ride to downtown, where most attractions are located, is about $5. Actually there are plans to build a new international airport for about 20 minutes from Guayaquil, near Daular.
If you are planning to visit the [[Galapagos Islands]], Guayaquil is the cheapest place to take a flight from. Both [http://www.aerogal.com.ec Aerogal] and [http://www.tame.com.ec TAME] have flights.[[Image:Aeropuerto.jpg|thumb|270px300px|José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport]]
