Travel Blogs from Quito

8pm - curfew time!

A travel blog entry by tannerhall

Oh man, Quito could be so great if it wasn't for the crime. We had been warned by friends that Quito was not a safe place to go out at night, and that was reinforced by the warning signs about theft we saw at the first hostel we stayed in. Needless to say, we weren't willing to risk going out too much after dark, so we would scurry home as soon as …

We left Marc and Sue at Pequeno Paraiso with
regret as has happened before when packing up and moving on from really nice
places to stay. But the bandwagon has to keep chugging along as Alaska still

Quito - high altitude city living ...again!

A travel blog entry by griffs-on-tour


We managed to set off on reasonable time on Friday morning heading north up the coast, passing turquoise blue waters, till we hit a town called Pedernales. The map told us we had crossed the equator getting there but, if there was any sign on the road about it, we missed it. At Pedernales we turned inland and slightly south and crossed back over …

Every city should have a Ciclopaseo!

A travel blog entry by mgcarmany

Quito may have a bad rap for crime (& probably well deserved), but it has one thing most cities donīt have: a Ciclopaseo. This is a very cool cultural/sporting event that closes down the main road (over 20 kilometers) and allows people to walk, bike, rollerskate, jog, or pogo-stick down the street for 5 hours every Sunday.
We rented a …

The first couple of days in Quito

A travel blog entry by laura1


After 10 hrs on airplanes and 4 hrs in airports, I arrived in Quito in one piece on Sunday night. My bag, on the other hand, is a whole different story... Unfortunately, two hours was not enough time in Miami for my bag to be transferred between flights. Luckily it arrived last night and was not lost into the airline abyss. I had put a change of …

    Back for our 3rd visit in as many weeks as it is just so conveniently located, the staff are great and it's good value. Just an extra bathroom and toilet would put the icing on!

    This was a serviceable hostel that was pretty comfortable (some beds are softer than others) and mostly friendly (the day workers were nice, but the owners´family seemed a bit short). This place is big amongst Europeans it seems. There is a small community kitchen, but you have to buy your own drinking water. Not sure it deserved the rave reviews the guidebooks gave it though...
