Route
“Jog in early mornings, stroll the afternoon or people watch in the evening. Have a bite to eat; from quick free stand burger kiosks, to bbq sit down dinners, pizza or simply ice cream. Family friendly atmosphere. When the tide is low, swimming beach is available. Enjoy a cocktail or cool drink at the far end and watch them load the Catch of the Day onto trucks. Shop for souvenirs or browse the shops.”

Miscellaneous Shop
“Local Shopping mall where there is wall to wall shops to browse. Ranging from clothes to electronics; this is a more traditional Ecuadorian shopping center that moves away from the western style malls we are accustomed to. You can food courts outside and often souvenir vendors as well.”
