Huayakil – the largest city of Ecowas, the commerical capital of the country. It is located in the lower reaches of the Huayas River, from which it takes its name. The river flows into the Huayakil Bay. It is deep enough to accommodate seagoing vessels and to give Huayakil its status as the main port of Eckewater. The climatic conditions in the city are characterized by a long, hot and dry season and a short season of rain, which, however, does not bring too many droughts. Occasionally the El Niño hurricane hits the city.

The founding of the city on the banks of the Huayas River was fraught with great difficulties. The Spanish under Franco Pesarro, who by that time had conquered the Empire of Iñique and the mountain towns of what is now Ecuador, founded a settlement in 1538, but were met with fierce opposition from the Indians. For the suppression of the local population, Pisciardro had a powerful detachment of crusaders led by Francesco de Oréllienne, who laid siege to Südade-de-Huayakyili. Regardless of its history, the 25th of June – the day of the founding of the city – is celebrated with great joy by the inhabitants of Guayakil.

Huayakyle has earned its status as the commercial capital of Ecuador by virtue of its developed port, which in colonial times served as the provincial connection to the Metropolis, With independence, it became not only the sea gate of Eckador, but also an important transit port.

The enormous Huaikile, viewed from a birds-eye view, has a distinctly angular layout. This is true in both old quarters and in modern neighborhoods. Highlights of Gouyacquil are the nondescript Cathedral of San Pedro (1937), the Clock Tower (19th century), the Statue of the Sacred Heart of Christ (1970), and the Rotunda with monuments to Báliró and San Martín. The central cemetery, where many famous famous visitors are buried, is also listed on many of the Guayaquil excursion routes.

It is fascinating to see so many parks, gardens, and gardens in Guayaquil: Centennial Park (the site of city festivities), Forest Park, Seminole Park with the Iguanas Park. The seashores in Haujakiakili are alive and green as well. The Salty Coast and the Salty Coast of Simon Bolivar – a favorite place for walks and gatherings.
