  • Stayed just two blocks from there and listened to the music in the air at night. I am not imagined that night was appointment in that place. Youth overflows the tables in the bars that in that corner (because it is not more than four opposing corners) put loud music, light colored lights and sell drinks and cocktails of all flavors. There are bars, cafes and even sale of chocolates. There is a taxi stop and a tourist office. It is a good place to go to (try to) meet people.

  • It is a square located in the heart of downtown in the new city of Quito. So to speak, in a Times Square location in Quito, there are many long hours for tourists (that people enjoy tea or sake) in crowds. Not going to a place that does not, however, enjoy some drinks and want to eat if there is scale and features aimed at more.

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.
