Quito: The “Most Beautiful Big City in South America”

Why do I love Quito, Ecuador? The sweet-natured people...the extraordinary weather...the gorgeous scenery...the great restaurants, shopping, the first-class infrastructure and services...and, of course, the affordability... It's a city where you can still take a taxi anywhere in town for $1 to $5 and find a menu del dia for $1.50 to $2.50.
