Explore the authentic bohemian neighborhood of Guapulo. Take a walk down a winding road to the old neighborhood church, which was the original route Francisco de Orellana took to the Amazon River during the beginning of his explorations. The rustic vibe of the neighborhood leaves an impression, and you can find quite a lot happening during the evening hours. Listen to some local bands, dine on local fast food, and take in the urban sights and sounds.

  • It is an emblematic place for visitors, like Ronda in the historical centre, with nice restaurants and a beautiful view from the observation deck, where you also will find a small picturesque Church. It is located north of Quito, near the calle González Suárez.

  • Very Nice view! Sometimes you can see Cayambe Volcano. Of course it all depends on the weather, every now and then there is a lot of fog and you can see nothing.
  • Hermosa vista de guapulo y cumbaya...
  • The best view in Quito!
  • Excellent, quiet viewpoint, without many people, can be seen throughout the tumbaco Valley, it is a good gateway to the Bohemian area of Guapulo
