Last Saturday we took a flight back to Canada and came through the Guayaquil Airport on our way. I thought I would share a little bit about what it’s like.

What’s the Guayaquil Airport Like?

The Guayaquil Airport is modern and spacious. There are cafes, restaurants, and gift shops, both before and after security.

If there are souvenirs that you forgot to pick up for yourself or others, there are lots of shops to browse through while you wait for your flight. I even saw some English magazines and books in the book shop in the departure area; they can be hard to come by in Ecuador.

There is also free WiFi throughout the airport. The WiFi is accessible by key code at cafes in the arrivals area. And there is open access everywhere in the departure area. So you can catch up on some work, or do some socializing with friends and family to make your waiting time fly even faster.

The grounds around the front of the building are really nice. There are tall palm trees, and a fish pond with some really big goldfish.
