Activities and Excursions About Quito The city council of Quito was the first in Latin America to declare its independence from Spain. A renowned political and cultural center in colonial times, Quito has developed into an artistic, architectural and literary center. In the early 1980s, the old colonial city of Quito was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Quito is a city of sun and sky surrounded by mountains. On a clear day, you look out from Quito at three snow-capped volcanoes. Its climate has been described by many as eternal spring. The daily average temperature is about 21° C on any given day. There are only two seasons in Quito, summer (the dry season) and winter (the rainy season). Despite its more than one million inhabitants, Quito retains a small city atmosphere. You can walk to most of the places you need to go, and the bus system is quite extensive, should you decide to wander a bit further. Quito is a traveler's paradise.
