It is part of the urban regeneration project carried out by the Municipality of Guayaquil, within the administration of Mayor Jaime Nebot. The work was built by the Spanish firm Ghesa Ingenieria y Tecnologia, and it was inaugurated on October 30, 2011. The water dances to the compass of music; which is a beautiful and imposing show. Attractions One of the main features is the continual movement of the water in the middle of a game of colorful lights that form hundreds of allegorical shapes that provide a great visual effect to the tourist in which the sound of music is also a complementary part of the show. This fountain has a geyser (thermal fountain) in the shape of a pump that allows increasing the water jets to a height of 40 meters. There are 64 lower pumps that produce squirts that reach 20 meters of height, and also are projected through a movie screen. At night, the fountain constitutes a spectacle of colors filled with music and images. The water squirts in colors blue, violet, red, yellow, and others, dance according to the music, that go from semi classical pieces to the traditional ones such as “Guayaquil de mis amores” and “Guayaquileño, madera de guerrero”, which are synchronized with images of the city.
Address: Over the Salado Estuary, between La Ferroviaria Park and 5 de Junio Bridge.
