We loved the atmosphere of Indie Brewing Co - their IPA was a nice drop. We also had 3 great meals at an upstairs Mexican restaurant - down a street off Plaza Foch. There are plenty of eating places to choose from in and around...More

Tourist party spot. I went and had fun, but meh. Go to La Floresta which is pretty and actually nice. It's from my brief time (2 weeks) in Quito the only place that reminds me the most of home.

A friend there told me that Mariscal is red-hot in real estate right now. It is lovely, with rolling hills, lots of trees and flowers, with well-kept homes along the streets.

I have visited the Mariscal since 1980 and the quality of buildings and the rise in crime rates make this a less than desirable place to hang out. Day time robberies on the street are reported and police presence is not noticeable. Take care!

This neighborhood has been taken over by gangs, do not recommend going there unless in a group. Can be mugged.

Mariscal is in the center of Quito. It has la ruta de museos, Plaza de Foch and Calle 6 de Diciembre close by. The modern section runs into the more traditional parts here, thus everything is in walking distance. I recommend staying in this area.

Safe area, probably built up for gringos :-) but lively, safe, full of good restaurants, hotels, bars, tour operators for the Galapagos, hostels, nightclubs, coffee shops and internet cafes. Great to go to when everything else is closed in Quito. This place is full of...More

I spend 4 nights here before heading towards the Andes. That time I choose a hotel, instead of hostel. This district tursitic, but I want to say safe - with normal precautions. Many bars, pubs, restaurants etc., good base to take city tour. 5$ with...More
