Guayaquil - Isla Santay

Santay island on the Guayas river used to be only accessible by boat. Recently the government built a bridge for cyclists and pedestrians as well as a elevated wooden footpath inside the island that takes you to the ecovillage. The entire ecovillage is built on a swamp so all the houses are elevated as well.
There are a few small crocodiles that are taken care there though they are not much of a show, rather just staying still. There are also a restaurant and a few snack huts.
If you have overeaten your sweet quota like us you not only would like, you would need to visit Santay island. The 3 km from the start of the bridge to the ecovillage plus all the way back will burn all that extra sugar.
