Ecuador’s capital stands at an altitude of 2,850 metres on the slopes of the active volcano of Pichincha, 25 kilometres south of the Equator.

Founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city, Quito’s beautiful old town is perhaps the least altered historic centre in Latin America. Most itineraries allow time to explore at the start and/or end of a trip. You can visit the Mitad del Mundo monument on the Equator, go horse-riding or whitewater rafting, visit an Indian market, or simply take a city tour.
