Quito. Pop. 2,100,000. Currency US Dollar. Language Spanish. Time Zone GMT - 5 hours. Mariscal Sucre International Airport UIO. Best Time to go – year round destination. Quito is the capital of Ecuador, however, the largest city is Guayaquil. Quito is situated on the east slopes of Pichincha, an active volcano in the Andes mountains, at an altitude of 2,850 m (about 9,350 ft). Due to this altitude and it’s location on the equator Quito has mild climate all year round with an average temperature of 15 degrees Celsius. The Spanish established themselves in Ecuador and Francisco Pizarro founded San Francisco de Quito on 1534. Quito and it’s surrounding areas were freed from Spanish influence after the Battle of Pichincha in 1822 which was won by forces under the command of Simón Bolívar and Antonio José de Sucre. The modern city is divided into 3 areas: The Colonial Old City; The Southern Area (home to both industrial and residential districts); and The Northern Area (With high-rise buildings, shopping centers, the financial district and upper class residential areas).
