We went to the teleferico while staying in Quito. It costs $5 per person to ride to the top (discounts for kids). We were told that at one time they tried to run it as a restaurant and such, but it was too far from everything. The views from here were just incredible. There is also a 5 hour hiking trail that you can take near the back of the complex. We even passed a group of mountain bikers hauling their bikes and gear up for a ride down. You HAVE to do this (weather depenendt)
