Independence of Guayaquil is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed. Guayaquil is the largest and the most populous city in Ecuador. On October 9, 1820, almost without bloodshed, a group of civilians, supported by soldiers from the "Granaderos de Reserva", a battalion quartered in Guayaquil, overwhelmed the resistance of the Royalist guards and arrested the Spanish authorities. Guayaquil declared independence from Spain. EnJoy EnJoy

Why are so many people pretending they are enjoying themselves on such a lovely beach ??
13feb18-- I am guessing armed with some information that the large number of people are celebrating the last days of Carnival before the start of Lent tomorrow on Ash Wednesday. Thanks for the 'photos' Vanja. Check out the host's web page for some great images of this beach and area and activities. Awesome! EnJoy EnJoy

This is the first time in at least one year of following this cam, to see so much people on the beach. I had to upload the picture of it :)

Wonderful beach, like to visit one day,Hola from Canada
This looks wonderful!
Ah that's better, thank you.
Lots of wobbly camera work going on at the moment, I hope we get the view of the beach back.
Oh, how I wish we were there. Very tired of the cold and snow.
I can see a bit clearer now, a lot of flying insects about.
