It’s hard to tell whether you are short of breath because of the altitude, the views from the Teleférico, or the majestic architecture in the historical district – but regardless of the reason, Quito is a great South American city to visit for a weekend or for an extended stay. Situated high in the Andes between two mountain ranges, Quito offers spectacular views, unique regional dishes, excellent mountaineering and hiking, along with easy access to a variety of unspoiled natural beauty and landscapes.
