No matter the age, you'll have lots of fun. Looking for some relaxing time, this park is the perfect spot. Playgrounds for little kids, easy hikes, beautiful atmosphere, there is the possibility of riding bikes or just walking through the trails. BBQ areas can be rented. Very delicious natural juices are sold there.

We took a day trip to the Cayambe Volcano with Dennis, which was an amazing experience. For starters, Dennis is a very smart guy who knew a lot of information about every city we entered, and pointed out wonderful sights. He was also very accommodating, and made sure we were ready to hike up high altitudes by buying us lunch... More

This park is a jewel in Quito. It's 5 minutes away from the commercial part of the city. You can just go for walking, sightseeing, running, mountain bike or a picnic. It's 700 hectare, so you have like 60 km of roads in the forest, in the middle of the city. You can take great pictures of Quito and the... More

We took a private day trip to Bellavista $100 private transfer and $15 per person for the main 3 hr Guided walk, there was an option for a second walk $10 but we had not arranged the transport back to Quito to cater for this. You are in a Cloud forest so boots and rain coat if you are there... More

This park is twice the size of Central Park in NYC. It has lots of different undulations and trails to interest varied hiking interests. It offers great views of both Quito and the valley's to the East.

A beautiful park nestled in Quito, hidden away from the bustle of the city. I went hiking there and enjoyed both the natural scenery and the pieces of modern art tastefully placed towards the beginning of the park. It's a great place for hiking, biking, enjoying nature, or going there with the family and have a birthday party or other... More
