Afterwards continue to Guayaquil’s Historical Park, a project aimed at recapturing the culture and traditions of the coastal area. The park has three areas: (1) the wildlife area that is home to animals such as deer, tapirs, monkeys and wild cats; (2) the urban zone that offers a reconstruction of life in Guayaquil during the 19th and early 20th centuries; and (3) the traditional area that features gardens, a farmhouse, a handicraft center and rural architecture.
