It might sound strange to go run at a shopping mall, but Plaza Lagos in north Guayaquil is blooming with modern architecture and pristine infrastructure. Runners can start at the shops and head out on an expansive network of streets and promenades through this developed island environment. A loop around the perimeter of Plaza Lagos is about 3 km, but the surrounding neighborhoods of Samborondón are some of the most pleasant in Guayaquil. Add mileage with a loop around Isla Mocoli or (with permission) explore the gated communities surrounding Plaza Lagos to the north and south.
