  • Walking towards the entrance is beautiful, but enter is even more. When you arrive at the box office pay $ 3.5 by a foreigner, then pass the turnstiles gave me an explanation of my journey. To explore it dried by different types of forests, there is a tent of carnivorous plants, an area of roses, captus is beautiful but the almost complete yourself with the Bonsai Museum, really is the most beautiful place. A place that worth a visit in Quito without get away from the city.

  • Beautiful gardens. Nice representation of many different ecological regions. Fun sections of orchids and carnivorous plants.
  • Great gardens. With it's low admission price, this is definitely a "can't miss" for Quito. Enjoy the beautiful surrounding park as well
  • If you like plants, is a must visit place. They have many varieties of Highland and tropical flowers and plants. There's also a butterfly room, where you can walk alongside them.
  • I'm a bit of a botanical gardens snob and while this small gardens could clearly benefit from some more funding and a little elbow grease, it is rather pretty. I mainly enjoyed the construction of the greenhouses.
  • Beautiful place into the city. Great for quick visit all regions of Ecuador. Congratulations for great job!

Where to stay in Quito

Most visitors to Quito choose to stay in La Mariscal, a touristy neighborhood filled with guesthouses, restaurants, and bars. This area is also the town's nightlife hub, drawing a young crowd of revelers from around the world. If you prefer less noise, look for a bed in La Foresta, a quieter and less crowded alternative just a few blocks away from popular entertainment opportunities.
