Marilyn JonesWhen I traveled to Ecuador to visit the Galapagos Islands, my tour coordinator AdventureSmith Explorations arranged my pre- and post-hotel accommodations in Guayaquil. The reason this is a suggested part of the entire package is to ensure a buffer in case there is a delay in the flight into Ecuador so that visitors can make the flight from Guayaquil to the islands.

I decided to arrive another day earlier so that I could explore the city. As it turned out, except for lunch, I never left the hotel!

As soon as I exited passport control and customs, I was greeted by a uniformed gentleman from the hotel.

After getting to the hotel van, it only took about 10 minutes for him to make the drive to Hotel Oro Verde Guayaquil. Centrally located in Guayaquil, the 5-star hotel is located minutes from Centennial Park and close to Presley Norton Museum and Central Market — all on my list to explore the following day.

I was immediately impressed with the spacious lobby, friendly staff who all spoke perfect English, and the bellman who took me to my room. On our way to the elevators, we walked past a few shops as well as a gallery of modern art. If I could have easily gotten one home, I would have seriously considered purchasing it. They were all for sale.
