Things To Do
Hilton Colón Quito is the ideal base from which to explore the Ecuadorian capital city, thanks to its convenient central location bordering the buzzing La Mariscal district and the charming Old Town. La Mariscal district is the center of entertainment with varied dining, shopping and dancing options. The UNESCO World Heritage Historic Center, meanwhile, is just minutes away, filled with beautiful historic and religious buildings, cultural museums and artisan markets.
Don’t leave Quito without visiting:
- TelefériQo - Quito’s iconic cable car that travels more than 2,000 linear metres (6,500 ft) up the eastern side of the Pichincha Volcano to the Cruz Loma lookout point, towering over the city.
- La Mitad del Mundo monument - straddling the Equator and located approximately 15 miles (24 km) north of Quito, this unique monument marks the exact line dividing the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
- UNESCO World Heritage Historic Center – a living museum, the beautifully preserved Old Town invites you to explore iconic churches like San Francisco and gold-covered La Compañía; vivacious squares like Plaza Grande; and fantastic museums that lead you through the city’s colorful history.
- Artisan Market – just a block from Hilton Colón Quito is a marketplace where you will discover many of the traditional artisan crafts that you would find in Otavalo, including intricate hand-woven textiles.
KEEPING ACTIVE IN QUITO
The sheer geography of Quito makes it a treasure trove of activity: slopes for climbing and cycling down, peaks to scale, craters to explore, and valleys to cross.
Your time spent here could see you clambering up – or whizzing down – a volcano, flying kites over the city, cheering on the national soccer side, or discovering Ecuador’s amazing biodiversity on horseback: before heading back for a well-deserved rest at the Hilton Colón Quito Hotel.
