There is nothing open during the day, so make sure to visit this street at night. Very pretty and romantic, but also the restaurants and shops are quite expensive.

I really enjoyed La Ronda. There were no cars and best of all, no buses with their black fumes. There are many small shops with very fair prices. Everything made in or from Ecuador is fairly priced. Those items from the US or Europe are very expensive. That's ok because we wanted the handmade crafts and clothes from Ecuador. My... More

A crescent-shaped colonial street, bursting with life at the weekends. Tons of restaurants, cafes, salsatecas and karaoke bars, and the best part? Mostly locals or nationals, wanting a nostalgic trip down the memory lane of night life. Parents with small kids begging for balloons, occasional dancing troops, older Quitenos. This is a place to enjoy, stroll and have fun... In... More

Exciting, fun, great shops, restaurants, bars, a lovely safe place to stroll. The locals seem to have an equally good time.

I came with a walking tour during the day and thought it was a quaint area but wow, at night this place comes alive with locals and tourists alike. The street is crowded, there is live music coming from almost every other door and food and drinks (and amazing chocolate covered strawberries). There was also a small handicraft market at... More

Go in the evening when there is more activity. Try the local cinnamon/wine mixture of canelita or a cone of espumea! If you have time be sure to check out the statues and plaques of famous Quitaneos in the square at the top of the calle.

This is a place to go at night and preferably on Fridays and Saturdays. There are lots of palces to eat typical food, nice stores with handicrafts, places with live music... Very nice if you go in couple or with friends. Not very interesting for young children.

We toured La Ronda in the late afternoon on Thursday, July 31st and found a lot of the shops were closed and the streets empty. I am assuming they are busier after 6pm and on the weekends. We were a bit disappointed and didn't stay very long. There were a lot of police present so we felt it was safe... More

A safe, secure pedestrian street in Old Town. I go there for a romantic evening or to enjoy time with friends. I'm so happy they have refurbished this area.
