This is your typical modern avenue you can find in many South American countries full of business buikdings, hotels, restaurants and upmarket shops. Certainly not ugly, but I would exchange any of the nice streets in the old town for this one

I don't understand all of the unkind remarks about the Avenida Amazonas. Not every street in town can be quaint and beautiful. This one gives you a good idea of the Quito of today, which is bustling with activity and carrying the good people of...More

Busy street nearby to many of the high end hotels, with many shops, vendors, restaurants scattered around. Check out the huge park closeby, wonderful playground for the kids, and again many street vendors selling anything from art, to clothing. Much safer during the daytime, unless...More

This area is nice, but pretty busy. There are a lot of restaurants and shopping options, so you can usually find exactly what you're looking for. It's also one of the safer areas in Quito.
