After spending an unforgettable four days on a luxury boat cruise in the Galápagos Islands, I was more than ready to get connected to the online world once again, catch up on business and to write about how brilliant Ecuador is!
Guayaquil is well known for being the business City for Ecuador and so I needed to find a hotel that offered basic digital nomad facilities, while at the same time being in a prime location for cool points of interest of the ‘La Perla del Pacifico.’
When I got to my room in Hotel City Plaza, I was happy to see that the table and chair that was advertised was actually there (some hotels do annoyingly bend the truth with that) and I was more than ready for my instant transition from tourist to online worker.
The wifi worked just fine for me to Skype with my mate back in Mexico to tell him that he needed to stick Ecuador on his South American travel itinerary, before cracking onto some business calls and emails.
The wifi was top notch and my stress levels were thankful of it.
After a couple of hours work I wanted to see some Guayaquil points of interest before the sun goes down.
City Plaza Hotel is only a few minutes away from The Metropolitan Cathedral of Guayaquil and the highly esteemed Iguana/Bolivar Park.
After taking some photos of the loveable lounging lizards I went back to the hotel and finished off the day by using the most underrated facility in the hotel game – the glorious bathtub!!
I woke up in the morning fully refreshed after a solid sleep in the bed in the ‘Suite’ room and went for a continental breakfast in the morning.
Before breakfast I’d put in a laundry request and asked them to make it snappy as I was flying at 2pm. I received my clothes all clean and lovely smelling around 10am, plenty of time for a stress-free pack before checking out before my flight to Peru.
