After picking you up from your hotel in Guayaquil, we'll head to the historical centre of the city to enjoy a guided tour of the Municipal Museum.
In the Pre-Hispanic Room we'll marvel at a multitude of archaeological pieces that will give us a fascinating insight into the history of this area of Latin America in the pre-Columbian period. Then we'll follow the course of history into the Colonial Room. Its exhibition contains a range of objects related to the Spanish conquerors who landed on American soil in the fifteenth century. From then on, the history of the New World undergoes great transformations that we'll find out all about during the visit.
