You can imagine you are living in the late 1700s as you stroll along La Ronda. You can imagine senoritas sitting on the balconies in their lace mantillas and expect caballeros to turn the corner at any minute. There are numerous bars, cafes and nightclubs to entice you inside these restored XIX century buildings, and the atmosphere is magical. It... More

While this street is charming and picturesque, it apparently only really comes to life in the evening when it is also widely reputed to be at its most dangerous, or at least when the danger of thievery and pickpockets is greatest. We visited during the daytime hours and my feeling was that too much has been made of this street... More

It's a quaint part of colonial Quito with interesting shops, bars, and restaurants. Personally I liked Barrio San Marco better as it's a true Quito colonial neighborhood without the glitz of La Ronda.

Transport yourself to a charming place in colonial Quito, enjoy a stroll while your senses come alive in this place with so much history and charm. You can enjoy a great meal too, but wait.... be ready to totally enjoy life music from 8:30 pm on when Calle La Ronda come truly alive and bohemians are singing, dancing or just... More

Go at night and listen to some incredible live guitarists and drink Canelazo. Canelazo is a hot spiced drink made from naranjilla (a jungle fruit), spices, panela sugar and aguardiente- delicious and found only in Quito. La Ronda is romantic and full of charm.

Pretty street during the day and a few chocolate shops to visit. At night you can enjoy the bar scene with the locals. We stopped in one to try the famous hot drink called Canelazo.

Check out this cute street for some tasty chocolate, or later at night to enjoy a famous Ecuadorian cocktail called Canelazo.

Calle La Ronda was recommended by our hotel but we found it a bit disappointing. It's a short street and architecturally charming, but it was rather deserted. While it was regular weekday, a number of shops were closed. Googling the street and looking at images, I noticed that the only photos with a lot of people were taken at night.... More

Not really what I expected after reading the reviews. If you are in a group or just want to bar-hop in a safe street with a touristy taste of Ecuador, Calle de la Ronde is an obvious choice. OK for kids, couples, granddad or a girls' night out, you can indeed eat, drink, listen to music and have a fairly... More
