Quito & Surrondings

Quito, capital of Ecuador is located in an Andean valley at 2,850 m above sea level at the foot of Volcano Pichincha (4,794 m). To go around Quito is a fascinating adventure because every sector has a rich cultural tradition and a charm that will leave a trace in your memory. This is the reason why in 1978, UNESCO declared Quito’s colonial center as one of the World’s Cultural Heritage Site.
You will visit two different urban areas; the first one, full of technological achievements, hotel facilities to choose from (including many of the world’s major hotel chains), countless restaurants, shopping centers, theaters, convention centers, etc. The other, centenarian with colonial style, that keeps the most beautiful treasures of the painting and sculptures from the XVI century. This contrast between the modern with the mystical and historic can be observed accompanied by friendly people that with no penetration enjoy these magnificent characteristics, making them part of daily lives.
The city has its annual festival in December, when festivities such as bullfights, the election of the Queen of Quito, national and international concerts, street dances, and fireworks turn Quito into the site of a national gala for an entire week. The celebrations are in honor of founding of Quito on December 6, 1534 by Sebástian de Benalcázar.
