Remembering Julio Jaramillo in Guayaquil

My name is Julio from from Quito in Ecuador. My parents named me after singer Julio Jaramillo who I grew to love as I grew up. I recently discovered that there was a quaint museum in Guayaquil dedicated to my idol I could book a ticket to. After the semester was over, I availed a ticket via Avianca Ecuador to Guayaquil. The services of the plane were great, it was an amazing journey due to their passenger-friendly amenities. When I have arrived in Guayaquil, I quickly explored the place to find the Museo de la Musica Popular Julio Jaramillo. After having bought an entrance ticket, I toured around the museum. There were lots of wonders to see in the landmark: vintage mandolins, beer, other singers, and most especially, Julio Jaramillo. Their displays were astounding, I was fascinated by the memorabilia dedicated to him. It was an inspiring trip to Guayaquil. I will book a ticket back to the place.

An anthropological journey in Guayaquil

My name is Teresa from Miami. Last year, my family decided to avail of a discounted ticket bound to Guayaquil because my dad wanted to visit my cousins who hails from the city. They were able to book a ticket via American Airlines. On board, I felt relaxed and comfortable because of the quality service rendered by the staff on board. Upon arriving at Guayaquil, we were greeted by our cousins who were eager to see us. After our exchange of tight embrace, we settled down at their house before touring us around Guayaquil. We were able to secure an entrance ticket to visit Museo Antropológico y de Arte Contemporáneo which, according to my cousin, was one of the best places to visit in Guayaquil. It guides you on an anthropologic journey to the past, with a wide array of exhibits. I loved the place. Very genuine and educational.
