Things to do in QuitoEdit This
Quito Zoo is actually a hour or so out of the city in Guayllabamba but still easy to get to - buses to Cayambe pass the turn off. It focuses almost exclusively on native animals and is a way to see the shyer and rarer ones such as puma and ocelot that you are unlikely to see in the wild. Also a chance to see condors, macaws and various types of monkey much closer than in their natural habitat.
The zoo is family-friendly with a special section for children and a picnic area. Be warned that the cafe is not always open so don't rely on more..
