I'm now thinking of heading down to Banos (easy buses & accommodations etc) & then coming back with a stop off at Latacunga.
My question is:
Where should I plan to stay in Quito? My plane should get me from Coca to the airport in Quito at approx. 6 pm. Should I stay somewhere near the airport (Tababela or somewhere similar) or should I stay in the centre of Quito? (I thought that staying near the Quitumbe bus station would be a good idea, ready for my bus trip but I've just read several reports that it isn't a very good area. I'd need to go out for supper & I'm a solo female traveller so perhaps not!)
My LP guide book doesn't show where the new airport is so I'm struggling to see where I should stay for the best.
If I stay somewhere in central Quito, which area wouldn't be too far from Quitumbe (I'd like to get a fairly early bus & don't want to waste time being caught up in rush hour traffic).
Any help would be appreciated.
