If you have a limited period of time in Quito, donâ€™t miss a tour of the Centro HistĂłrico at night or the weekend market at Parque el Ejido (especially if you canâ€™t make it to the market in Otavalo). If you have more time, be sure to take a trip to El Panecillo, which offers excellent views of the narrow Andean city. Or, take a trip to Parque La Carolina, where you will get a true taste of the relaxed, life-loving Ecuadorian culture as families putt around the boat pond, send their little ones biking or skateboarding over concrete peaks in the skate park and dirt bike track, play sports or just lounge and enjoy the day. Some museums not to miss while in Quito are Guayasaminâ€™s Capilla del Hombre and the Museo Nacional del Banco Central del Ecuador.
