Museums and Archaeological Sites to visit in and around Quito. Don’t miss the chance of placing one foot on the northern hemisphere and the other on the southern hemisphere of our planet in the Middle of the World site.
55 km from Quito you can visit the reserve that is named after the famous Ilinizas volcanoes!
As you head down the Panamericana road, you will find lower elevations and warmer drier climates. The Southern Andes region has a lonely, faraway feel to it, reinforced by its sparse population, scarcity of large towns and long stretches of wild.
