My husband, myself and 2 children, 7 and 3 will be traveling to Quito mid-March. Would you be so kind to suggest some kid-friendly places we must visit and/or hotels we should stay?
We've read lots of posts about safety, not sure how much it's exaggerated, but for the sake of our young children, should we hire a tour guide or private driver throughout our stay?
From the research I've done online, these are some of the tourist destinations we'd like to visit. Please feel free to suggest additional ones not listed.
- Mitad del Mundo
- Otavalo Market
- La Mariscal
- A village that makes music instruments?
- I also heard Ecuador is the world's largest suppliers of roses, we'd like to visit the countryside for these views
- A must for us is also to go horseback riding
Not interested in Mindo (kids are too young to hike) or the Hot Springs (probably kids won't enjoy this either).
Thank you!Edited: 23 February 2011, 04:34
