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.

Many artisan craft shops and galleries of interest in historic pedestrian street. Open day and night. Also a lot of restaurants for dinner or lunch.

Though Quito, Ecuador, has many modern attractions, visiting La Ronda in the historic Old Town should be a vital part of your visit. Coming alive after dark, around 7:00 pm, there are numerous restaurants, artisan shops, and a theater which offers an inexpensive and entertaining traditional dance. Guards from the nearby Palace stand to attention. The grand statue of Saint... More
