About Quito, Ecuador

Situated in central Ecuador is the country's capital city of Quito. Now one of Latin America's most interesting destination, it has long been an important city. Passed from Quitus to Incas to Spaniards, the captivating city is constantly evolving and attracting visitors.

Brimming with beautiful fountains, cobblestone streets, Baroque churches and monasteries, tranquil squares and government buildings., Colonial Quito is widely considered to be the best-preserved historic center in Latin America. Meanwhile, you can get a taste of Quito's traditional culture, for example, by perusing the colorful and energetic Indian markets dispersed throughout the city.

Quito’s central location makes it easy to travel around Ecuador, and you can also take excursions to the Galapagos Islands or neighboring Peru. Plus, Quito's high altitude off-sets its proximity to the equator, leaving the city a beautiful climate often dubbed "permanent spring."
