Best Places In Quito To People Watch

With its diverse population, Quito is a great place to people-watch. Top spots include the plazas of the Centro Hist├│rico, including the Plaza Grande, Plaza del Teatro and Plaza San Francisco. On any given morning, all three will be filled with strolling families, indigenous women in traditional attire, shoeshine boys and street performers. If you want a glimpse of a different side to Quito, the city's malls are a great place to check out Ecuador's elite. At night, the action shifts to the Mariscal. You can grab a table at one of the outdoor restaurants along Plaza Foch, or take a seat at one of the bars overlooking Calama street. Both are great places to watch the nighttime revelers.
