Good: Avenida Gonzalez Suarez, La Floresta, area around Parque La Carolina, Bella Vista, Cumbaya, Tumbaco.
I lived for a few years In Centro Historico. It was like back in time, like a living on the movie set. In CH, I like areas: street Rocafuerte, La Ronda where my apartment located and street Benalcazar. I know English-speaking people happily living there, some renting, some in their own properties.
