Guayaquil, in the tropical lowlands, is the largest city in Ecuador and the commercial centre of the country. The riverfront promenade has restaurants and parks, leading to the historical neighbourhood of Las Peñas. Here, you can climb the 444 steps of Cerro Santa Ana to the old lighthouse, stopping in the many bars and cafes in the colourfully-painted houses on your way to the top. Parque Bolivar in the heart of the city has metre-long iguanas wandering around.
