We may have gone too early, but it wasn't all that other travelers had built it up to be. The nightlife is supposed to be the main attraction, but it just felt a little boring and even creepy. In all fairness, we were there before 10pm and it probably has a different feel later in the night. We also visited... More

Nice street, scenic, and full of shops and stores but the evening I went there most of them were closed. It's a little spooky at night with most of the places closed. The restaurants that were open were empty. Maybe it's a weekend thing?

La ronda is amazing mix of sounds (coming out from each bar os restaurantes) and the smell of typical Ecuador food and drink. A must go placa of Quito city.

The Calle La Ronda is a beautifully restored narrow cobblestoned street that is not that easy to find. During the day it is a beautiful quiet alleyway which is a great time to take photos of the beautiful architecture. At night it transforms into a bustling street packed with both tourists and locals alike enjoying the restaurants, bars, live music,... More

I can't remember the name, but this little shop is run by a friendly couple whose passion is bee farming and making organic soaps, honeys and creams. The gift boxes are only $9 USD--even on my Peace Corps budget, I got a few sweet-smelling gifts!

Don't miss the evening walk along this avenue. This is where the locals and tourists head to for a night on the town. Lots of restaurants and places to get a few drinks, listen to live music, watch dance performances, make friends, and just enjoy yourselves. Street dates to the 1500's, lovingly preserved.

Our hotel was actually right on this street, so, all of our comings and goings took us along the calle la ronda. It is a cobbled old street with the style of "old town" Quito. There is a mixture of restaurants, nightclubs, and shops. At Nighttime it becomes a busy and crowed pedestrian mall with a steady bustle of tourists... More

For a flavor of Old Quito, don't miss this old gentrified red light district road. Restaurants on both sides (sample the guinea pig and canelazo!), traditional dances (if you're lucky) on the street. Good police presence even late, but beware of pickpockets.
