Although I avoid much parts of the center of Quito, this is quite the exception. Explore the street to find a small restaurant with live music and the most delicious empanadas I've eaten. You will also find street shows, such as painters (whom paint with anything from gasoline and oil, to spray paints), street theatre, and street performers. I've also... More

This lovely little street in the Old City is fun at night. Music pours out of the little restaurants and the shops. People with menus stand outside and invite you to join them. It's worth two hours to browse the shops and stop for a hot chocolate that is served with cheese that melts into the cup. Try one of... More

It's hard to believe that this area was once a run down street filled with crime. The city has done such a wonderful job at re-vamping and renovating the area. We enjoyed the nearby square, and walking and shopping on this long curved street with quaint shops. Tasting hand-made gourmet Ecuadorian chocolates with unique fillings and local flavours was a...

This street is a really nice area at night. Much like the rest of the old town, there is a huge police presence so we never felt unsafe. The restaurants are pretty good but the vibe on the street is the main attraction. Definitely worth checking out.

Since my taste is to go for the more authentic and less touristy, I did not really enjoy this street as much. However, I should say that there are a couple of nice shops. We bought a wooden traditional spinning top (tropo in Spanish) hand made in the place. The street looks nice, but the restaurants are average.

If you are going to buy something to take home, La Ronda would definitely be the most enjoyable place to shop. There are Panama hats, cigars, chocolates, clothing, food, wine, trinkets, puppets, toys, you name it, there is a store that has it on this winding and very charming street. Restaurants are interspersed along the way so you can eat... More

We visited La Ronda a couple of times and were there a bit too early to see it at its liveliest, but did enjoy the food and the old-world atmosphere.

This was probably my favorite nightlife spot in Quito. It feels very European and is packed with a variety of people of all ages at night. Fun place to take a stroll and shop or stop in to one of the countless bars and restaurants.
