Discover Quito

Quito was declared the First World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978 because it maintains the best preserved historic downtown of America. Full of wonderful corners with history, legends and unique experiences.

Chocó Andino

Just 45 minutes from Quito, to the northwest, is one of the natural paradises on Earth: the Chocó Andino de Pichincha. This protected area, with abundant flora and fauna, is celebrating one year since its declaration by UNESCO as the seventh Biosphere Reserve in the world. A magical environment of exuberant nature and countless birds that enchant our adventures with their whistles.


Climb more than 3000 meters above sea level and admire the city that is formed in the middle of the monumental Andean mountain range. Anyone can, today, venture to Pichincha, the geological massif that rises west of the city of Quito, thanks to the city's Telefériqo, which takes you to Cruz Loma in a matter of minutes, while you admire the view of Quito.

Historical Center

The historic center of Quito is located in the southern center of the city of Quito, Ecuador, on an area of 375.2 hectares (3.75 km²), and is considered the best preserved historic complex and one of the most important in Latin America.

Center of the Word

It is the most visited place in Ecuador, just 30 minutes from Quito, is the monument that celebrates the equinoctial location of our country. North of Quito, in the parish of San Antonio de Pichincha, is the most visited attraction in the country, the Mitad del Mundo monument and complex dedicated to the equinoctial line. Here the tourist's favorite activity is to take a picture on the yellow line painted on the cement that divides the planet into two parts.
