Quito is the capital city of Ecuador and referred to us as "Light of the Americas" due to its rich, millenary history - both pre-columbian and colonial. One of the key attractions you will encounter during your visit is the world's largest historic center; its winding streets and colorful facades are sure to delight.

Quito was recognized in 3 occasions as the best destination in Latin America by the World Travel Awards (WTA), known as the “Oscars of Tourism”. It was also voted by TripAdvisor users as a top-25 destination in South America.
