Quito ranked 4th in the The 10 favorite cities

The magazine Travel + Leisure conducts the World’s Best Awards every year. For Ecuador, it is a source of pride that this year Quito, the capital of all Ecuadorians, ranked 4th in the category “The 10 favorite cities of Travel + Leisure readers in Central and South America of 2023.” The voting was done among nearly 165,000 T+L readers, with a total of 68,500 votes across more than 8,500 properties, cities, cruises, and much more.

Voters rated the points of interest, cultural diversity, food, friendliness, value, and shopping opportunities in each city.

“The representation of Ecuador on the list comes from Quito (No. 4), the country’s capital city. Located only 16 miles from the equator, Quito charmed readers with its delicious Ecuadorian cuisine, beautiful historic churches and cathedrals, and a nearby active stratovolcano. ‘I visited for work and fell in love with the city. There’s so much history and so many sights to see. The people are friendly, and the native markets are full of beautiful handmade trinkets,’ one reader remarked. ‘And do go to the equator. You won’t regret it.'” Reference
