Walking by Calle La Ronda it is a great experience as you will find locals and visitors mixed while enjoying the different activities such as live music, restaurants, stores with local crafts and souvenirs, and also some different kind of locals dressing as famous personalities such as spider man, superman, etc... You will LOVE IT!

This is a great place to visit and hang out in...especially if you're visiting Quito with friends. I came here twice: once during the day to get a sense of the neighbourhood, and once after dark to experience the night life. I definitely recommend coming after dark when the place comes alive with locals and tourists alike. There are a... More

It's a place that's a must stop. It's a tourist place but you can find good chocolate at Chef Fizz and there are a few hotels. The food in most restaurants are decent but some have great views. What I loved most were the weekends. The police block off the street to cars and everyone is out partying and enjoying... More

Same as the old town itself: authentic, but started to turn tourisic, it seems to me not for local people anymore. Over priced a bit. I visited at Sunday, it was almost empty, feel safe.

This is one of the more well kept parts of the city. There are Policia everywhere, but they are all super nice. At night, the street lights up with music and dancing. Plenty of places to eat and drink, but they know there are tourists there so prices are a bit higher. If you head up the street two blocks... More

November is the wrong time to come but even so the contrast is very marked. On weekdays the street is very quiet, with not much happening but on Saturday night the place is transformed, with musicians, dancers and street theatre.

This old part of town has been cleaned up and now is full of lights, music, ambiance, and food. Come here to get some culture.

Friends of mine from Quito took me to La Ronda. It's lively place full of people. We went on the saturday prior to halloween so people were dressed up with costumes. There are several restaurants, bars, and discoteques that you can choose from. There were also museums, and urban art shops from which you can buy cheap artsy stuff, quiet... More

La Ronda is a good place to go out to for dinner, but it is overrated. During the day not much is open, and in the evening, well, you have many dining options. But that's it.

La Ronda is a quaint cobblestone street in the Historic area of Quito. The street runs uphill or downhill depending on which end you start on to be aware that depending on your ability it could be a moderate challenge. It is completely pedestrian ... no cars to deal with. The street features lovely little shops some of which sell... More
