Quito is another really beautiful city in south America with beautiful houses and monuments. Here again hills are seen at the background which always makes it even more charming.
The only thing that I didn't like here is that there are lots of tourists and you loose the local athmosphere if you go out. We saw here as well Chivas (big bus) on which music is played and you get drinks but here instead of 95% of locals it was 100% of tourists.
For the rest Quito is a good base to do certain tours as the Cotopaxi volcano, Quilotoa laguna or other volcanoes...

Bonita ciudad: el centro historico y la zona de Mariscal Sucre, que es donde estan la mayoria de hostels para extranjeros y hay mucha marcha tambien. La ciudad esta rodeada de montaņas, un poco como La Paz o Bogota, lo que le da un atractivo especial. Aqui vimos party-chivas, pero no tenian nada que ver con lo que hicimos en Colombia, eran todo gringos y con musica de discoteca, nada apetecible, la verdad.

Aparte de eso, en las cercanias de Quito hay bonitas excursiones para hacer de un dia, ir al Cotopaxi o al Quilotoa, ambas muy recomendables.
