A must while in Quito, the view is amazing on a clear day. The ride up and down is also a worthwhile adventure.

Chew cacao leaves or eat cacao candies if you are not accustomed to the altitude. Make sure you walk up to the swings. Continue behind the swings and take a very inexpensive horse ride.

This is a great cable car on a clear day. The views are spectacular and lots of walks etc if you want to be active - at very high altitude. If you are in Quito when the weather is clear - do it.

One gets to the top and according to the level of fitness, one stays put, one walks to the swings or one goes on a rather strenuous walk. Admittedly the views from the top are fenomenal but we visited the Virgin Mary with the Wings...More

I highly recommend the Teleferico, just get here early before the queues build up. We were there by 09:30 and it was already busy. This is a morning activity, the clouds can gather in the afternoon so you could miss the incredible views if you...More

Hi. There were many kids who took the Teleferico. So I think your daughter can do it, just take it slow.

Yes, you can camp there. There is no cost. There is also a refuge cabin near the top of the Guagua Pichincha which is near the crater and is an active volcano. You can see the crater usually early in the morning before the... More
