Quito Things to See and Do

follow us

If you have a limited period of time in Quito, don't miss a tour of the Centro Histórico at night or the weekend market at Parque el Ejido (especially if you can't make it to the market in Otavalo). If you have more time, be sure to take a trip to the Panecillo, which offers excellent views of the narrow Andean city, or a trip to Parque 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 Guayasamin's Capilla del Hombre and the Museo Nacional del Banco Central del Ecuador.
