Quito – Rising Star at the Centre of it All
Goway launches new Quito Stopover.
Quito – is fast rising as a popular first stop on any South American adventure. Packed with history, yet pulsing with the vibrant hum of an urban playground on the rise, this safe, culturally rich and cosmopolitan city is not just the political centre of Ecuador. It’s the geographical centre of the world, sitting a mere 25km from the Equator. No longer dismissed as a one night stop on the way to theGalapagos, this UNESCO World Heritage Site listed city saw its international tourism grow by over 7% in 2011-2012.
At 2800 meters (9350 feet) above sea level, Quito is one of the highest capital cities in the world. Sitting in a valley surrounded by active, dormant and extinct volcanoes – most of which can be climbed. On clear days the snowcapped summit of Cotopaxi Volcano provides a spectacular backdrop to the equally impressive colonial centre of Quito, one of the largest, best-preserved historic centres in the Americas.
Goway Travel is highlighting the amazing choices in and around Quito with a new 4 day module called Quito – Centre of it All.
This great trip includes transfers from Quito’s brand new international airport, 3 nights accommodation, a city tour, visits to the Equator and the amazing indigenous market of Sasquili, and lunch at the Andean Hacienda of Guaytara, near the base of Cotopaxi Volcano. Prices start at just $1350 per person based on 3 star hotels. Also available are upgrades to the Hotel La Casona de la Ronda for $345 or the Hotel Hilton Quito for $360.
Goway’s Latin experts suggest one of their unique dining experiences at the Rumiloma Hacienda, perched high on the side of the extinct Volcano of Pinchincha overlooking Quito to cap off the perfect short adventure in this incredible city.
More than a stopover, Quito combines the best aspects of a visit to South America into one affordable and unforgettable destination, perfect for visitors wanting to experience the Centre of it All.
