Getting Around: Feel free to use taxis, they're cheap and safe,this way you'll avoid getting lost, and with a couple of words of Spanish and confident replies you'll avoid the driver raising the price just because you're a tourist! You can even get around quite easily on foot, as it's small, but it's a good idea to ask what areas to avoid .. Train well before going because it's full of hills!

Not to miss:  Quito is home to numerous museums, including the museum of Guayasamin, Ecuador’s most famous contemporary artist. At the south end of the colonial district, El Panecillo affords both a panoramic view of the city and a close-up of the grandiose statue of the winged Virgin. Another popular site is La Mitad del Mundo, or ‘The Middle of the World’, the monument marking the spot where, in 1736, the location of the equator was verified. This site also houses a planetarium, museum and restaurants.
Park Ejido is home to Quito’s weekend markets, but a day ... More trip to Otavalo is more than worth the effort, as artisans, weavers and other vendors sell their wares seven days a week. Smaller markets are also held in nearby towns such as Guangaje and Zumbagua.
A number of activities are on offer in the surrounding mountains, catering to all tastes. The more relaxing include bathing in the natural springs of Papallucta, or taking in archaeological sites such as the pre-Incan pyramids at Rumicucho and Pambamarca and the burial mounds at Haienda Zuleta, while active types can participate in horseback riding, mountain biking, white-water rafting, or, most exciting of all, paragliding from the volcanic peak of nearby Pichincha.

General opinion:  Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is situated in a long valley surrounded by the peaks of the Andes, about 2850 metres above sea level. The impressive natural beauty of the surroundings is complemented by the amazing history of the city. Originally inhabited by Quitus and Shyris, the city was later conquered by the Incas. Rather than surrender to the invading Spanish in the XVI century, the Incas razed the city to the ground and took refuge in the surrounding mountains.
Quito’s Old Centre was constructed by the Spanish on the site of the ancient Inca city, and ... More was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978. Strolling through the winding streets lined with colonial architecture, it is easy to be transported back in time to when these plazas were the sites of some of the most famous battles in Ecuador’s history. The city today is divided into a number of different areas, known as sectores, including the Old Centre, Guapulo, La Foresta, and the charming tourist area of the Mariscal.

General opinion: It's a very historical place. It has the most beautiful monuments you could have seen. It is a very educational for kids and adults as well. Wherever you look, there is history. The monuments are the star attractions there are many kinds of monuments. Even a day is enough to see that you would love to come back to Quito.
