Uncle Ho´s

Calama y Deigo de Almagro
2 reviews

Really delicious Vietnamese food. The cuisine really tastes authentic and is nothing like the "chifa"--the local term for chinese food--restaurants that you'll find nearby. Try the pho or the summer rolls--and don't forget to order the peanut dipping sauce. Head here when you just can't stand to eat another plate of rice, chicken and shredded lettuce.

    This is one of my favorite places to visit in Quito. For lack of a better word, it is "amazing". I've never been a big fan of touring old churches, but this one stands alone. It is immense, imposing and carries this strange aura of mystery and hidden secrets. It is also still an operating church, popular with old Quito's ...

    Guayasamín is one of Ecuador's most renown artists and truly one of my global favorites. The warm and inviting museum is a must-see for any visit to Quito. The museum, perched in one of Quito's steep hillside neighborhoods, overlooks the downtown and is graced with beautiful sculpture gardens. The museum itself is spacious and well laid out, really maximizing the ...

    El Panecillo Hill and Momument

    7 reviews

    Quito's version of the Statue of Liberty - only it's a winged Virgin Mary rather than an incarnation of Egyptian Isis. Although I've spent years living in Quito, I actually only visited the statue once - on my first visit. It's a one-time kind of place - fantastic vistas of Quito and her surrounding volcanoes, but once you've seen it, ...

    El Aguijon is the place to go to dance the night away in la mariscal. And there's no question that salsa night (every wednesday) is the night to go. Even wallflowers and non-dancers will find themselves sucked into the fun and excitement of the dancefloor. The club's exterior used to be an enormous, colorful graffiti mural, but it's been a ...

    This was my favorite mall in Quito. Mostly because it was in walking distance from my old home above the stadium, but also because it was a little slice of globalized Americana in the heart of the city. Not that I like or thrive on that kind of tasteless commercialism, but when you're spending months alone in trackless jungles and ...

    This refreshing 8 minutes ride takes the traveler to the top of moorlands at 3600 ft. At summit, great views of Quito can be admired, as well as the nearby volcanoes in a clear day. It is a fun attraction.
