Quito & Surroundings

The cultural heritage of Quito, Ecuador’s capital, is of such importance, that it was the world’s first city to be declared a UNESCO “World Heritage Cultural Site” back in 1978. Quito showcases the most important and best-preserved colonial center in Latin America. Churches bathed in gold, convents constructed with massive hand-carved baroque doors, entire city blocks of Spanish-style villas featuring charming geranium-filled balconies and hidden courtyards, this city is truly an amazing place.
In the surroundings, there are adventures waiting to happen. Enjoy posing for a photo with one foot in the southern hemisphere and the other in the north in the Equatorial Line.  Visit volcanoes and snowcapped mountains to trek and explore. Subtropical climates that show off their unique biodiversity with dazzling waterfalls, unique flora, and natural sceneries. Thermal volcanic waters to relax or experience the authentic life of the highlands with cross-cultural experiences in the biggest Indigenous market in Otavalo and the Karanki Magdalena community.
