appropriate clothing as a tourist in Quito

by gfr3rd

Give suggestions for appropriate clothing while a tourist in Quito and traveling occasionally with tour groups--Both male & female attire

Re: appropriate clothing as a tourist in Quito

by NicoG

Quito is warm during the day and cold at night. Due to the altitude and with Ecuador being over the equator the sun is very strong and sun burn risk is high. Hat's are recommended (as well as sunscreen) to stop sun burn.

At night, a jumper (or sweatshirt for the Americans) is a must, and a thick one at that.

As for dress codes in Ecuador, it is similar to that of western countries you can wear shorts / skirts / sleeveless tops etc.

Re: appropriate clothing as a tourist in Quito

Generally in Quito there are few restrictions to clothing, in terms of respect. I would advise fairly conservative dress, but that's not official. Definitely bring sunscreen or repellent sun, as the high altitude will definitely burn you... I turned pink in under an hour on a cloudy day.

And definitely bring raingear... if you'll be in Quito during the rainy season, squalls can come up suddenly and drench you, then leave just as fast. A light jacket or umbrella can make a huge difference.

Be comfortable, and enjoy your trip.

Travel Tips for Quito

Post Office in Mariscal

by tejanasueca

There is a POST OFFICE in Mariscal on the corner of Colón and Reina Victoria (essential as Ecuador don't use stamps).

Hours:
M-F 8am-5pm
Sat 8am-11:45am

Fees:
Postcards to the US and Europe take about 2 weeks and cost $1.25 (I know, outragous!)

The people

by el_ruso

Residents of Quito are mostly of Indian descent. They are very reserved and dignified, but they are very friendly nonetheless. You will not be accosted by pushy 'guides' or trinket sellers, even at the markets. Service anywhere is top notch and very professional.

Rain, shine, rain, shine!

by J_P_B

The weather we experienced in September/October was one minute rain next torrential rain, don´t forget to take wet weather gear with you even if the sun is shining and there is not a clound in the sky!!

Banco Central de Ecuador

by mikey_e

Ecuador’s original Central Bank building, now a museum, is a wonderful neo-Renaissance structure that complements perfectly the architectural heritage of the Plaza Grande. Its current Central Bank building, on the other hand, is a grimy and ugly reminder of the country’s repeated currency and financial difficulties of the 1970s and 1980s. Located on Guayaquil, just across from the southern tip of the Alameda, this large, hideously sixties building dominates the view west from the Simon Bolivar monument towards the mountains. It looks like something that was bombed out by the NATO aggression against Serbia in 1999, a hulking reminder of the horrors passed off on developing countries during one of the oil booms (probably) prior to the knowledge of just how dangerous it could be to spend all of your oil earnings at once. Today, the Central Bank is not all that important as it once was, in part because Ecuador dollarized its Sucre in 2000, and also because the country has, thanks to oil prices and better economic management, avoided debt crises in recent years.

Irish pub in La Mariscal

by acemj about Kilkenny's Irish Pub

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know, it's an Irish pub and I was in South America! Well, I actually didn't visit Kilkenny's because of the Irish pub atmosphere. I came because there was a sign outside when I happened to walk by that advertised that they serve "canelazo". Well, I had heard about the hot Ecuadorean concoction and I figured I should make sure that I try one before I left. A canelazo is basically a sugarcane liqueur (aguardiente), some water, brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon, served hot and makes for a decent sip-myself-to-sleep nightcap. As for the atmosphere in the pub, well, it was pretty mellow, maybe even a little lame. When I think of an Irish pub, I expect a little more lively conversation among total strangers, but oh well.
