Quito

Light of America

High in the Andean foothills, Quito remains one of the world's most photogenic capital cities, featuring two dramatic mountain ranges as its backdrop.
Cemexpo has been added to your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Quito: Cascada de Peguche (in Peguche) and Otavalo (Otavalo Market & Mercado 24 de Mayo). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Museo Templo del Sol Pintor Ortega Maila, make a trip to El Panecillo, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fundacion Iglesia de la Compania, and get to know the fascinating history of Quito Old Town.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Quito fast, fun, and easy.
