I had never known about the artist Guayasamin until coming to Quito. We took tours that taught us history of this area. Guayasamin’s art was in large part about war and the horrors of what we do to each other. He had a great heart.

The Guayasamin Museum (which is actually his house) and the next door Capilla del Hombre are a little off the beaten path and well worth it. We opted for the house tour first, which featured an excellent English speaking guide ad a wonderful tour of...More

Make sure you get the hotel to order the taxi as the unregistered ones are unreliable and twice we were dropped off miles away from our destination and had to hail down another taxi which isn’t always easy
