Best Places In Quito To Spend A Rainy Day

Quito, despite its pleasant and spring-like climate, has some quite rainy days. Don't worry, though; a rainy day need not be a wasted day. The best spot to head on a rainy day is the Capilla del Hombre. The museum, the masterpiece of Oswaldo Guayasamin, perfectly matches the rainy weather outside. Guayasamin's paintings are dark and forlorn, focused on the suffering of Latin America's indigenous and Afro-descended populations. You can also watch the clouds dramatically sweep up the valley from Guapulo and envelop the museum's location up in Bellavista, by the Parque Metropolitano.

If you get tired of the art, you can head to one of Quito's newer malls and pass the afternoon shopping, taking in a movie and people-watching.
