Puerto El Morro creates new tourist areas

Article - January 30, 2013
Guayaquil authorities have regenerated the seafront area at Puerto El Morro
uayaquil nestles between the banks of the River Guayas and the confluence of the Salado Estuary, which snakes out into the Pacific Ocean. The city looks out to the sea at the extended and regenerated boardwalks of Puerto El Morro and Data de Posorja, and the beach at Varadero.
Construction work has resulted in a new tourist attraction for visitors to walk along the shore and will lead to the regeneration of the area thanks to the improved pavements leading to the waterfront and the creation of wastewater pipes and integrated sanitation systems.
The wave of upgrades continues on to Varadero Beach, where parking facilities and an area for restaurants and other tourist attractions have been built.
This rehabilitation of the banks of the Guayas River and the Salado Estuary areas will be further extended to allow people to see dolphins, herons and pelicans in their natural habitat. Accessibility to the mangrove reserves will also be improved. 
Guayaquil is not alone in promoting urban revival that embraces the sea. The city is just one of a host of places around the world that have opened up their local natural maritime attributes to the benefit of both locals and tourists, such as their beaches, riverbanks and ecological areas.
The road between the El Morro and Puerto El Morro beaches is almost 10 kilometers long and acts as one of the main arteries of regeneration in the area, transporting the public from the city to the new tourist attractions. 
These projects will help Guayaquil to open out into the ocean in a similar way to cities like Barcelona, which took advantage of holding the Olympic Games to undergo a huge redevelopment and help the city rediscover its sea front.
