Quito

When to go

Jan-March

Ideal length

4 nights

Transfer time

1 hour flight from Patagonia

Quito is flanked by majestic mountains and snow capped volcanoes and its centre is divided into two. There is a colonial part with baroque facades, wrought iron balconies and cobbled streets that was made a UNESCO world heritage site in 1978, and the modern district, which has all the hustle and bustle of an Ecuadorian city.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN QUITO

MUSEUMS

The city contains a variety of interesting museums, varying from pre-Columbian ceramics to modern paintings to traditional dress and ornaments of indigenous groups.  Please ask us what your interests are and we can recommend the right museum for you

LOCAL MARKETS

Below El Panecillo is a thriving Indian market and the nearby Ipiales market sells everything from Columbian artefacts to used slippers, but throughout the city you will find smaller market stalls where locals sell their daily produce

CITY TOUR

Best seen on foot, where shouting street vendors, narrow cobbled streets and tooting taxis bring it all to life. The highlights include; Plaza de Independencia with its 16th century Cathedral and government palace, the plaza and monastery of San Francisco
