High in the midst of the Andes mountain range lies Quito, the capital of Ecuador and the highest capital city in the world. Named after the indigenous people who founded the city in ancient times, there is nothing this city prizes more than its history, be it the archaeological remnants of their ancestors or the colonial influences of their forefathers. In fact, this city is so rich in history, it is deemed one of the best-preserved historic centres of the Americas; and, along with Kraków, Poland, was one of the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The historical mountain air beckons to you – it’s time to explore this marvellous city! If you’re planning to have a vacation here, you need to look for a place to stay. From hostels to vacation rentals, the capital city has something for every tourist. Here’s a list of Airbnbs in Ecuador, specifically in its capital, Quito.
If you’re travelling in a group, this home for rent in Ecuador is another accommodation worth checking out. Located in one of the quiet neighborhoods in Quito, this Airbnb designer home offers commodious living spaces where you can do anything from catching up with work in the semi-private study to winding down with a movie with the entertainment centre in the living room. All bedrooms also come with vanity and in-room sink for freshening up before or after a day out. On your trip here, be sure to set aside one night for an alfresco barbecue party in the yard!
