Dancing salsa and drinking Canelazo

If you go to the Old Town star there till sunset. At La Ronda you'll find a lot of pubs with nice music and very nice drinks.

We made the mistake of going here in broad daylight, and there wasn't much to see or do then. But I have heard it is hopping at night and a great place to get a bite to eat! Definitely worth a visit even if during the daylight hours!

Great little street near the hotel I stayed at. Lively at night, good restaurants, bars, music, etc. I felt safe there by myself when I went to listen to some live music, but only stayed until about 11pm. There is a police presence everywhere and they were friendly to point out where places were located.

The best place to spend your time when in Quito, by night anyway! Loads of good bars, cafes, restaurants and arty shops. Totally pedestrianised and very safe. It's a tourist trap all right and prices here are much higher than the rest of the city, but to be fair it has a lovely vibe and energy. We ended up here... More

Lovely narrow old street, too many staff trying to hustle your trade put off both my wife and I so weren't able to browse and adsorb the atmosphere.

This street reminds me of some of the small, cute streets we get back home- with a lot of ecuatorian, south american style and flair! Look out for the police men on segways in protective gear, it is weirdly entertaining...

The area has been really cleaned up totally safe. Lots of police presence. Great choice of restaurants and artisan shops. The food quality varies so read the menu take a peek and decide. Some very good local food spots (cuy too) and some very average. Great history with a couple quirky spots. Service is very good in the 3 spots... More

We spent 4 nights in Quito, staying in the historical district, a 10 minute walk from our hotel. Our first night was Saturday, and we walked to Calle La Ronda for dinner. The street was packed and buzzing, with live entertainers is many many places! The experience was amazing, and every restaurant and shop was open and busy, full of... More

A short two blocks packed with several restaurants and some shops. The chocolate artisan store was worth the walk. No traffic is on the street so you stroll down and enjoy. Felt very safe even after sunset.

We were here twice, once around 1pm and once around 5pm. Both times we were disappointed as no shops were open and only a few restaurants. We heard none of the famous music we were told about. Not too many people wandering the streets. Very quiet and nothing to do. Maybe you have to go much later? Also, be forewarned,... More
