Quito ~ A Hidden Gem
Quito was amazing in every aspect. Although you would probably be able to see all the local sights in about 3 - 4 days, the trip there is definitely worth it. The people are friendly, the city is beautiful and the surrounding scenery is gorgeous! I recommend a stop in Quito to anyone interested in going to South America.
Insider Tip:Walking around the city is great! Just make sure you are used to the altitude first! Quito is located at about 9,300 ft above sea level. Drink tons of water while you are there to avoid altitude sickness.
