ECUADOR 3-DAY ITINERARY

I have wanted to visit Ecuador ever since I saw it on Lonely Planet’s 2016 Best in Travel list. Perched high in the Andes, Quito is home to gorgeous architecture, breathtaking landscapes, and the middle of the world.

I've outlined a 3-day itinerary below (including two additional travel days). This daily breakdown includes the cities I will be exploring, what I’ll be doing, where I’ll be sleeping, and how I’m getting around.
