Where is the best place to stay in Quito?
Quito is the highest official capital in the world, which stands at just under 3,000 metres high up and is Ecuador’s second most populous city. The city is one of the prettiest on earth, which is surrounded by mountains and is home to many historic attractions and was one of the first cities along with Krakow to be declared a World Heritage Site back in 1978. Due to the elevation and close proximity to the equator, Quito can have all four seasons in one day, which sums up the city as it can offer so much if you look for it.
The best area to stay in Quito is La Mariscal as this is the main tourist hub of the city, which runs from Avenida Orellana in the north to the Parque El Ejido in the south with the main focus being around the roads of Juan Leon Mera and Reina Victoria. This neighbourhood is full of tourist amenities including the best selection of international restaurants, exciting nightlife, bundles of accommodation, great shopping and marvellous attractions as well as being located close to the centre.
