Musical Capital of Ecuador

On vacation in Loja--a city that loves its music and art--you may very well see the locals singing as they go about their business, through streets decorated with splashes of paint and tiled murals. Places to visit in the city of around 180,000 include colonial-era churches, public monuments, and large public parks, while you'll also have good access to regional national parks. Back in town, take time in your Loja itinerary to try out the restaurants: both modern and rustic, they possess a vibrancy that owes as much to the local cuisine as it does the folk and salsa musicians providing entertainment. Customize your holiday with our Ecuador trip itinerary builder to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Loja

The center of Loja provides a good set of accommodations, located either side of the arterial road, Avenida Universitaria. Mid-range and luxury hotels offer various amenities, including pools, onsite restaurants, and swanky bars. Budget-conscious visitors will want to explore the side streets of the central areas and outskirts, where formerly residential buildings have transformed into guesthouses, simple hotels, and hostels. The Nueva Granada district in the city's north provides both boutique hotels and hostels, whose proximity to Highway 35 makes them a good choice for those wanting to get out into the rural areas.
