Now let us tell you a little more about Quito:

Let's start by giving you its true name: San Francisco de Quito. "Nice to meet you too," it would say if it could. Quito is the highest capital city in the world, standing about 2800 m.a.s.l. (slightly above Sucre, in Bolivia, which is its runner-up), and it is famous for the Pichincha volcano and for being almost at the centre of the world. If you travel 25 km north, you would be exactly at latitude zero, at the Equator line. Fortunately, there is no need to do such trip, as there is a monument devoted to "the Half of the World" in Quito as well.

Quito has a very well-preserved historical centre, so get ready to take many photographs of its buildings and visits its museums. In the evening, we suggest you to go to "La Mariscal". It is one of the most tourist-friendly areas, so you will find cafés, nightclubs, discos and other places to enjoy yourself.

Before going to Quito there is only one thing to remark: despite being almost at the Equator line, it is located in the mountains, not in the coast. Therefore, get ready to steep changes in temperature between day and night, and don't be surprised if you need to put on a jumper and a jacket on top, if necessary.
