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.
