This city is 2,800 meters (9400 feet) above sea level , it´s traditionally known as La Carita de Dios. It is a different and growing city, where in a single day it is possible to feel all climates! First you enjoy of a sunny morning and while the sun is still smiling at you it starts raining! Sometimes it will get windy forcing you to wear a good heavy jacket.

Quito is surrounded by majestic and imposing mountains which have served as protection for several centuries, this is the reason why the first natives settled Quito in the valley surrounded by these beautiful mountains.

You can not miss a visit to the Historical Center where you would be able to discover the beautiful old timer architecture of houses, museums, churches that are full of old legends and many culturals expressions. Quito counts with the greatest colonial constructions of South America, that is why it was declared as the First Cultural Patrimony of the Humanity.

To the South side of Quito we have the Cotopaxi Volcano which can be seen from the city on a cloudless day,  this volcano is one magnificent option to conquer The Andes.

To the North side of Quito is Otavalo City wich contains the most colorful and beautiful indigenous artisan market.  As you drive in you can enjoy of a spectacular view of the Volcanos Avenue and the Lakes Region and also visit Cotacachi, the city of leather, here you will find the most beautiful articles made by hand on authentic leather. The Cotacachi habitants support their families by working on the best variety of leather.

As you will see the Northern area of Quito has been conquered by modernism, while the south area still offers you the antique  and traditional San Francisco de Quito.
