  • Itchimbía Park is one of the many parks with green areas that you get in the city of Quito. The spectacular Park are their views: the roofs of the city, the Basilica del voto nacional and the Virgin of the muffin. That day also had cultural activities, theater and outdoor concerts. You can always sit one on the lawn and enjoy the food, or play outdoors.

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.
