Is It Heaven or Is It Mall del Sol, Guayaquil, Ecuador?

We have spent many hours over the past two days in the Mall del Sol. After a few hours of walking we take a break and go to the food court for a cup of coffee or a coke. Just a few photos of some of the goodies we found at the food court.

Mall del Sol is located almost directly across the street from Howard Johnson hotel so it is very convenient for anyone planning a nice shopping trip to Guayaquil. You step out the side door of HoJo’s and walk thru a maze of great looking restaurants and bars, pass the Sheraton and take the walking bridge over to the food court of the mall. Takes less than three minutes and is very secure with guards everywhere you look.

  1. Is the HoJo near the airport, that would be great when we come back. If not that will be a great get-away. Looks like a nice place!
    Hope you all are having fun, stay safe!!

    • Hola Susan, it is near the airport, has a shuttle and even has the flight schedule on a TV screen near the front desk. It is very nice and we would highly recommend it. Clean, good service, great sushi, buffet breakfast had many choices and was very nice. A very short walk like 5 minutes to the Mall del Sol for your shopping pleasure. Very nice place. Nancy

    • Yes, Howard Johnsons is great, I will have a post on that tomorrow, today I just want to sit and relax. We shopped again from early morning util after 1pm..I am finished…My present was the Kitchen Aid mixer it is mighty!!! Nancy
