Simply average. Nothing wrong here, nothing super wonderful either. I did not find anything life changing or revolutionary here, but just another big city street with some points of interest near-by.

In the Mariscal district this is Modern Quito. Also boasts a beautiful Gothic Church, restaurants, office buildings, hotels and more. A lot of upscale stores to boot. Worth looking around especially if staying at the Hilton Colon. The antithesis of the historic, cobblestone streets.

This is your typical modern avenue you can find in many South American countries full of business buikdings, hotels, restaurants and upmarket shops. Certainly not ugly, but I would exchange any of the nice streets in the old town for this one

Most Quito people are totally proud of their commercial street and the buildings. The street got some interesting buildings (my office among them) but even though improved over the last couple of years still has no soul. You can find good restaurant and shops somewhere...More

An attractive part of Quito with hotels, good restaurants and shops. Ejido Park across the street is a pleasant place to walk, especially on weekends, and gives a flavor if life here. I found that in places. The sidewalks are uneven and not always in...More

The first day we were in Quito, we spent the entire day walking around all the areas, especially the Avenida Amazonas. Waling around gives you a good flavor of the people and the area. There are plenty of places to stop and get a bite...More

Not really much to see here other than hotels and some shopping. It's a main artery in the city of Quito, but other than that, not much to speak of.

Nice bike lanes on parts of this, a good connector road to parks, plenty of restaurants and useful stores

This is a long Avenue that crosses, north south most of Quito. It has many upscale hotels, shops and shopping malls as well as parks. The shops are similar to what you fid in the US or in other part of the world and not...More
