Quito is the capital of Ecuador, and it's a massive city with roughly two and a half million people. It has a large international airport, and more than likely this is where you'll enter the country. So is it worth it to spend a few days in Quito before heading out to explore the rest of the country? Yes! Aside from being a major hub of activity, this large city is packed with beautiful parks and other attractions. It's historical district was the first (along with Kraków, Poland) to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site (1978). There are tons of really outstanding monuments, buildings and sculptures that display rich culture and history.
