  • It is a Museum in Ecuador and Quito's independence and history up to the present, using the wax exhibition. Admission was $ 1.5 per person. Brochures in English, but all exhibitions are Spain, so a bit hard to understand. It would be nice to visit if you're interested in the history of Ecuador.

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. For upscale sleeping options head to the old town, boasting many of Quito's top hotels in some of its prettiest buildings.
