  • For me it is the best of Quito, is in the middle of the city, easy access and you can hang out great, especially if you like running, cycling or hiking. I recommend it completely to spend an entertaining morning.

  • If you are looking for is a not-so-crowded space to practice cross country cycling, you have found the ideal place, above all by the topography which offers field. Solid paved, ecological paths provide greater safety in walking; In addition to their multiple spaces of recreation for walk, playground, sports courts, variety of birds for example of the Hummingbird, are the order of the day. Visit is a wonderful experience of encounter with nature.

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.
