    As an expat in such a fast-growing port city as Guayaquil, I really needed some assistance from a supportive community like InterNations.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Guayaquil

Hello to all Americans in Guayaquil! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Guayaquil? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Guayaquil which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Guayaquil has the potential to surprise. The second-largest city in Ecuador is a vibrant, sprawling city known for being Ecuador’s most important coastal city, its tropical temperatures, its welcoming locals, and much more! With the Metrovía bus services and road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in La Puntilla or Barrio del Centenario, for example, which are just a short car journey away from Guayaquil’s center.

Although Guayaquil has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Guayaquil, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
