This article contains text from the Wikipedia article on Guayaquil.
Guayaquil, officially Santiago de Guayaquil, is the largest and the most populous city in Ecuador, with around 2.69 million people in the metropolitan area, as well as the nation's main port. The city is the capital of the Ecuadorian province of Guayas and the seat of the namesake canton.
North towards Quito
Take a bus to Duran and get off at the gas station near "Parque de la 4ta etapa del Recreo".
A local suggested getting a lift from Estacion Tambo. I don't know what that is exactly. Maybe it's a gas station. -Keith
Northwest towards Machalilla, Puerto López, Portoviejo, Manta
Take the MetroVia bus (07/2019: 0,30 USD) anywhere on Vía a Daule to the last stop, "Terminal Bastión Popular". Here walk to the end of the terminal and get another, integrated bus to "Terminal Terrestre Pascuales". Leave the terminal and walk further down the road for a few hundred meters. You should soon be able to spot a Primax gas station (02°04′13.61″S 79°56′29.32″W) on your right-hand side. This is where you can start hitchhiking and asking people for a ride.
West towards Salinas
Take a bus to Chongón ($.35). Get off at the toll booth, right before the bus turns off the highway (tell the driver you want to get down at the Peajé).
- A friendly security guard at this toll booth helped me get a lift in August, 2014. -Keith
