See the view from Santa Ana Hill, one of the top things to do Guayaquil

Discover the city’s historic districts and modern attractions during your stay at Radisson Hotel Guayaquil. You can wander along cobblestone streets lined with quaint, pastel-hued houses in Las Peñas or climb a steep stairway to the top of Santa Ana Hill for panoramic views of the city and the confluence of the Babahoyo, Daule, and Guayas rivers. Looking for things to do between meetings at our hotel venue? Browse the stores at Policentro Mall or San Marino Shopping center, both located a few blocks away. If you want to explore the shore, pack a tote with sunglasses, a novel, and sunscreen for a beach day at Playas, roughly an hour away. The city is also a gateway to the Galápagos Islands, and our free shuttle to the GYE airport makes your trip easier if you’re staying overnight before a connecting flight.
