Mariscal District, Quito

(2.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Don’t miss the vibrant regeneration of Mariscal District, an area known for its dynamic nightlife and jovial atmosphere. With a largely changing populace of young fun-loving Ecuadorians and travelling backpackers, you'll feel the hedonistic vibe in the air. Even if you’re after something more laid back, the area’s variety should have you covered; live concerts, cultural centers, restaurants, and cafes offer something for everyone. Be aware that drinking alcohol on the streets is still not permitted, and the area's visible police presence exists mainly to enforce this. Make Mariscal District a centerpiece of your Quito vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Quito tour planner.
