Guests who take our Galapagos Islands cruises first fly to Guayaquil (pronounced "why-a-keel"), Ecuador, where our Galapagos tour begins. We always stay at Hotel Oro Verde, where there are four restaurants, but for those who want to explore Guayaquil's dining spots, there are plenty to be found. Here is a local-favorite Guayaquil restaurant list recommended by our knowledgeable Expedition Leader.
