Dale from San Francisco, California.
I had a wonderful time staying at Liliya and Leo’s La Ronda outpost. It is magnificently situated with a vertiginous balcony overlooking cobblestone streets with the statue of El Panecilio in the near distance.
Bakeries, fruit stands, and family run restaurants are all about. One of the best adventures is finding your favorites.
There are numerous activities within a quick walk. It is difficult to think of a European capital with so many cathedrals of architectural and historic interest in such close proximity to one another.
The Changing of the Guard at the Plaza Grande is a must-see every Monday at 11 am. I was fortunate enough to book the first part ofHoly Week and got treated to a street carnival on Palm Sunday.
Weekend nights, one hardly needs to venture into La Mariscal for entertainment. Andean music, street vendors, and artists populate Morales Street (LB - La Ronda historic district).
When one does elect to explore, the inexpensive transit lines are all nearby. Taxi drivers always know Plaza Cummanda for fetching and dropping off.
I had a guest for two of my four weeks here. We enjoyed cooking meals in the clean, serviceable kitchen and posting details of our adventures online using the secure wireless internet.
Liliya has a philosophical attitude about the distractions and annoyances of Quito. I found her wisdom and experience to be a generous bonus.
I can’t wait to return to Quito for another writing retreat and expect to use it as a jumping off point for future adventures in South America.
