QUITO TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatEcuadorian ceviche, plantain (try plantain soup!), chugchucara (traditional platter of corn, pork, empanadas and more), locro de papa (Ecuadorian potato soup), llapingachos (cheese and potato patties), cuy (guinea pig), langoustines and tons of tropical fruits best consumed in smoothie form from street-side kiosks.
What to bring backEcuadorian chocolate, Alpaca wool scarves or blankets, toquilla straw hats (known as Panama hats, but actually from here!) and all types of artisanal crafts from the Mercado Artesanal La Mariscal.
Fun factHome to about 1,200 species of birds, Quito is quite the bird-watching destination. Look out for the national bird of Ecuador, the Andean condor, at the Antisanilla reserve or take the cable car up the Pichincha volcano (called the TelefériQo) for epic views of the city and flitting sights of the Ecuadorian Hillstar Hummingbird.
